People Sure Act Funny

Play

People sure act funny
When they get a little money
Don't they baby
Yeah they do

People sure do holler
When they grab hold of a dollar
Don't they baby
Yeah they do

I knew you when you didn't have no shoes
The whole family sang the low-down blues
Now you're livin' on easy street
You pass me by
You don't even speak

People sure do holler
When they grab hold of a dollar
Don't they baby
Yeah they do

People sure act funny
When they got a little money
Don't they children
Early in the morning

I knew you when you had to live in a hut
You made your livin' by the cane you cut
Now you're livin' on easy street
When you pass me by girl you don't even speak

People sure act funny
When they grab hold of some money
Don't they baby
Don't they children

People sure do squeal
When they grab that dollar bill
Don't they children
Don't they children

I knew you when you used to live in a hut
You made your livin' by the cane you cut
Now you're livin' on easy street
When you pass me by girl you don't even speak

But you sure acted funny
When you got a hold of some money

Didn't you baby
Don't they children
Don't they children
Didn't they
Don't they baby
Don't they baby
Don't they children
Yeah they do
Don't they baby
Don't they children
Yeah they do
