You're always hollering about where I've been
You're always screaming about the money I spend

What's wrong with you?
Oh yeah, you're cracking up

I caught you, woman, a long time ago - boys
Keep your hand out of my pocket, keep your foot out my door

What's wrong with you?
Oh yeah, you're cracking up

Cha ta ta la ta, cha ta ta
Cha ta ta la ta, cha ta ta

Cha ta ta la ta, cha ta ta
Cha ta ta la ta, cha ta ta

Cha ta ta la ta

I used to do your cooking, your laundry too
Now what more for a woman could a man like me do?

I'm fed up
Oh yeah, you're bugging me

Cha ta ta la ta, cha ta ta
Cha ta ta la ta, cha ta ta
Cha ta ta la ta, cha ta ta
Cha ta ta la ta, cha ta ta


Cha ta ta la ta - ah yeah

Oh yeah, cracking up
Oh my, my

Oh yeah
