Woman rocks the cradle and I declare she rules her home
Many man rocks some other man's baby and the fool thinks he's rocking his own.

Won't some good man tell me some woman's name.

Hey, mama, what have I said and done?
You treat me like my trouble has just begun.

Back water rising, coming in my windows and doors
I leave with a prayer in my heart: back water won't rise no more

I wanna stop these married-looking women from worrying me.
