Woke up this morning, gal, twixt midnight and day
I woke up this morning, twixt midnight and day
With my hair on my pillow where my brownie used to lay

I know I ain't good-looking, teeth don't shine like pearls
I ain't good-looking, teeth don't shine like pearls
So glad good looks don't take you through this world

Go starch my jumper, mama, iron my overhall
Go starch my jumper, iron my overhall
My brown done quit me, God knows she had it all

I'm gon' tell you now, gal, like gypsy told the jew
Gon' tell you now, gal, like gypsy told the jews
"If you don't want me, it's a cinch I don't want you."

Did you ever dream lucky, wake up cold in hand?
Did you ever dream lucky, wake up cold in hand?
That's a mighty true sign your brown got some other man

My Mama told me, Papa told me too
My Mama told me, Papa told me too
Some brownskin woman gon' be the death of you
