It's a hard times, good man can't get no dough,
It's a hard times, good man can't get no dough,
All I do for my baby don't satisfy her no mo'.

I ain't got no job, that's why you go'n put me down,
I ain't got no job, that's why you go'n put me down,
You gonna quit me, baby, for hard work in town.

Times is so hard now, maybe things will change someday,
Times is so hard now, maybe things will change someday,
And if I get me a job, maybe you will change your way.

Don't quit me, baby, 'cause I can't find no work to do,
Don't quit me, baby, 'cause I can't find no work to do,
Lawd, the dirt you done to me, is comin' back to you.
