I love my man I'm a liar if I say I don't I love my man I'm a liar if I say I don't But I'll quit my man I'm a liar if I say I won't I've been your slave, baby Ever since I've been your babe I've been your slave Ever since I've been your babe But before I'll be your dog I'll see you in your grave My man wouldn't give me no breakfast Would'nt give me no dinner Squawked about me supper then he put me outdoors Had the nerve to lay a matchbox on my clothes I didn't have so many But I had a long, long way to go I ain't good-looking And my hair ain't curled I ain't good-looking And my hair ain't curled But my mother, she gave me something That's gonna tear me through this world Some men like me 'cause I'm happy Some 'cause I'm happy Some call me honey Others think I got money Some tell me "Billie, Baby you're built for speed." If you put that all together It makes me everything a good man needs
