I don't bother, nobody Wonder why they pick at poor me? Look like they'd rather see my body Drifting in the deep blue sea They have ate at my table Even slept in my bed They have ate at my table, woo-ooo They have even slept in my bed And they were jealous and deceitful Wishin' that I was dead So, I ain't-a callin' no names So, I have no blame to bear So, I ain't-a callin' no names So, I have no blame to bear But I know 'em when I see 'em You can bet your life on that. ~
