I'm leavin' you woman, before I commit some crime
I'm leavin' you woman, before I commit a crime
You the evilest woman, I think ever crossed my mind

You put poison in my coffee, instead of milk or cream
You poison my coffee, in with that milk and cream
You're the meanest woman, I think I've most ever seen

You mix my drink, with a can of Red Devil lye
You mix my drink, with a can of Red Devil lye
Then you sit right down, watchin' me, hopin' I might die

You better be watchin' me baby, baby it was not my time
You better be watchin' me baby, just might be your time
