Lyrics:

I looked out this morning and the sun was shining bright
I looked out this morning and the sun was shining bright
My baby was sleeping, least I think so, her eyes were shut tight

I said wake up darling, get up and let’s go out down town,
I said wake up darling, get up and let’s go out down town,
She opened one eye, turned over, stared and gave me a one eyed frown.

She got out of the bed and she tied her hair up real tight
She got out of the bed and she tied her hair up real tight
put on her old clothes went down into the broom cupboard and out of sight

She came back into the room, looked at the walls and began to clean.
She came back into the room, looked at the walls and began to clean.
Her arms they were jerking and her mouth was kinda mean.

when my baby’s got a mind to cleaning, there ain’t no room for me
when my baby’s got a mind to cleaning, there ain’t no room for me
with my clean living woman, while the sun shines I won’t ever be free
