I ain’t gonna take it no more

A Picture of You

(Sleepy Labeef)

Well I buy her clothes and I buy her a meal
But she goes out on a wild-wild deal
Just ain’t gonna take it no more

Gonna buy me a gal I can trust
But I won’t have her drive me bust
I just ain’t gonna take it no more

Gonna make her come to me and beg
Before I ever move a peg
Just ain’t gonna take it no more

She gonna wish her goodness that she’d been true
When she finds out what I’m gonna do
I just ain’t gonna take it no more

I been a-workin’ an’ slavin’ all day long
While my woman gonna do me wrong
I just ain’t gonna take it no more

Gonna put on my best suit tonight
And go out and dance till the broad daylight
I just ain’t gonna take it no more
