If you should lose me
Oh yeah, you’ll lose a good thing
If you should lose me
Oh yeah, you’ll lose a good thing
You know I love you, do anything for you
Just don’t mistreat me and I’ll be good to you
‘Cause if you should lose me
Oh yeah, you’ll lose a good thing
I’m givin’ you one more chance for you to do right
If you’ll only straighten up, we’ll have a good life
‘Cause if you should lose me
Oh yeah, you’ll lose a good thing
This is my last time, not asking any more
If you don’t do right, I’m gonna march outta that door
And if you don’t believe me
Just try it daddy and you’ll lose a good thing
Just try it daddy and you’ll lose a good thing
Just try it daddy and you’ll lose a good thing
Just try it daddy and you’ll lose a good thing
Just try it daddy and you’ll lose a good thing
