They call it stormy Monday, but Tuesday's just as bad.
They call it stormy Monday, but Tuesday's just as bad.

The eagle flies on Friday, Saturday I go out to play.

It's A Low Down Dirty Deal by John L. Crainer/T-Bone Walker
It's great to be rich and a doggone shame to be poor
It's great to be rich and a doggone shame to be poor
It's a lowdown dirty deal when your woman don't want you no more

I tried to please her but it only made her mad
I tried to please her but it only made her mad
She done strip me and took everything I had

Now what you gonna do with a woman like that?
Now what you gonna do with a woman like that?
Who takes all your money yes and leaves you flat?

Yes it's great to be rich and a doggone shame to be poor
It's a lowdown dirty deal when your woman don't want you no more
Now it was money in the morning, and money every night

If I didn't have no money, she was ready to fight
It's great to be rich and a doggone shame to be poor
It's a lowdown dirty deal when your woman don't want you no more

Mean Old World
by Aaron Thibeaux "T-Bone" Walker, from T-Bone Blues (Atlantic 8020-2)
This is a mean old world, baby, to live in by yourself
This is a mean old world to live in by your self
When you can't get the woman you love, you know she's loving someone else

Well, I drink to keep from worrying and I smile to keep from crying
I drink to keep from worrying, baby, I smile to keep from crying
That's to keep the public from knowing just what I have on my mind

Some day, some day, baby, I'll be six feet in my grave
Some day, some day, darling, I'll be six feet in my grave
And, I won't be around here to be mistreated, darling, like a low-down slave
