Mean Woman Blues . . . again

I’m a mean, mean woman
take away all your covers
put lumps in both sides of your bed,
take the shine out of your brass
mix up all the songs in your head.

I’m a mean, mean woman
don’t call me hard as nails
FOr SHOw,
I’m a mean, mean woman
take it with me when I go.

I’m a woman tough as tacks,
crusted over from sleepin’
with so many cold backs,
I’m a mean, mean woman
’cause that’s just what I have to be.

I’m a mean, mean woman
’cause no man can love me
and just leave me be.

Takes too many mean, mean men
to make a sweet woman blue,
takes too damn many mean men
to make a sweet woman be mean too.

I’m a mean, mean woman
’cause that’s just what I have to be,
’til I find some sweet, sweet sugar
to make a sweet thing out of me.
