B.b. King – Don't Make Me Pay For His Mistakes Lyrics

Don’t make me pay for his mistakes, baby

He’s the one who did you wrong

Yes, don’t make me pay for his mistakes, baby

He’s the one who did you wrong

Well, he’s the one who gave you six babies

And I’m the one who tried to give them a home, yes I am

I said, I’m tired of you tellin’ me baby

About how your man did you wrong

How he used to take your welfare cheque

And leave the kids without home

But I’m the one who’s working

I’m the one trying to give them a home

Yes, I’m the one who’s gonna love you baby

I’m the one who gonna give them a home

Oh yes I am

I said I don’t understand

She take a no good man

And give him everything she had

She’ll reach back in the cookie jar

And give him every dime

And let the kids run around hungry

Sleepin’ and a cryin’

So don’t make me pay for his mistakes, baby

He’s the one who did you wrong

Yes, he’s the one who gave you six babies

And I’m the one who gonna give them a home

Oh yes I am

Yes, he’s the one who gave you six babies

And I’m the one tryin’ to give them a home

Hold on

Don’t make me pay baby

Don’t make me pay for his mistakes, baby

He’s the one who did you wrong

Laaawwwdddd baby

He’s the one
