Mean Mistreating Mama

Written by Robinson / James.

You're a mean mistreatin' mama, you mistreat me all the time
You're a mean mistreatin' mama, you mistreat me all the time
I tried to tell you how much I loved you -
but you don't pay that no mind

You're a mean mistreatin' mama, and you don't mean me no good
You're a mean mistreatin' mama, and you don't mean me no good
I don't blame you baby, I'd beat her the same way if I could

You remember, baby - when I knocked upon your door
You had the nerve to tell me - that you didn't want me no more
Remember, baby - when I knocked upon your door
You had the nerve to tell me - that you didn't want me no more
oh, yeah

break:

Ain't it lonesome - sleeping all by yourself
When the woman you've been lovin' - is in love with someone else
Ain't it lonesome, baby - sleepin' by yourself
When the woman you've been lovin' - is in love with someone else

You're a mean mistreatin' mama, you mistreat me all the time
You're a mean mistreatin' mama, you mistreat me all the time, oh yeah
I tried to tell you how much I loved you - 
but you don't pay that no mind

Let's go
