I just don't know
What's this all about?
What is it all about, boys?

I just don't know
What's this all, all about?
The woman I love
Is tryin' to put me out
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/big-maceo-why-should-i-hang-around-lyrics.html ]
She said she didn't want me
Why should I hang around?
Hey-aay
Why should I hang around?
And that if I hang around
I would be jailhouse bound

I love that woman
More than she will ever know
'Yes, I love her'

Yeah, baby
More than you will ever know
But if you drive me away
I won't be back no mo'

I stole that woman
Stole her from my best friend
Yeah-ay-ay
Hee-eee, from my best friend
But that ol' fool so darn lucky
He's 'bout to get her back, again.
