Iím all alone in this world, she said,
Ainít got nobody to share my bed,
Ainít got nobody to hold my handó
The truth of the matterís
I ainít got no man.
Big Boy opened his mouth and said,
Trouble with you is
You ainít got no head!
If you had a head and used your mind
You could have me with you
All the time.
She answered, Babe, what must I do?
He said, Share your bedó
And your money, too.
