I won't have to buy the groceries She gotta pay the rent She gotta fill up my car every day And give me an account Of every dime she spend I made up my mind If this is the way life has gotta be I'm gonna do the same thing The same thing they been doing to me She gotta make me think she love me By staying in her place And sleep in another room So she won't be snoring in my face And when I ask her for some money To go out on the town I want you to hand it to me smiling And don't you act no clown I made up my mind, baby If this is the way life has gotta be Yes, I'm gonna do the same thing The same thing they been doing to me Now when I ask for some money To go out on the town I want you to hand it to me smiling And don't you be no clown Now that might sound cold to you, baby You might think I'm unfair But I've been hurt so many times Till I, I really don't care I made up my mind, baby If this is the way life has gotta be I'm gonna do the same thing The same thing they been doing to me
