Understand Your Man
Don't call my name out your window, I'm leaving
I won't even turn my head
Don't send your kin folks to give me no talkin'
I'll be gone like I said
You'd say the same old things that you've been saying all along
Lay there in your bed and keep your mouth shut 'til I'm gone
Don't give me that old familiar cryin' cussin' moan,
F G C Am
Understand your man (I'm tired of your badmouthin')
F G C
Understand your man.
You can give my other suits to the Salvation Army
And everything else I leave behind.
I ain't takin' nothing that'll slow down my travelin'
While I'm untanglin' my mind.
I ain't gonna repeat what I said anymore
While I'm breathin' air that ain't been breathed before
I'll be as gone as a wild goose in winter
Then you'll understand your man (meditate on it)
Understand your man (you hear me talkin')
