lyrics

Well, you're my black-eyed Betty, girl
I'm your uptown boy
I'm your primary income, sugar
You're my pride and joy
I'll leave the money on the bureau
Split before your red dress is on
I'll be gone, long gone, baby, long gone

I ain't always been no black-eyed Betty
I had a sweetheart when I was young
But the war took my man
And the bank men took my home
Now it's pubescent Casanovas like you
And wannabe Don Juans
But one day I'll be gone, long gone, baby, long gone

Well, you're my black-eyed Betty, girl
I'm your hundred-dollar man
Well, your senses must be crackin', that ain't no heat that you're packin'
Boy, you ain't worth a damn
If you keep on flappin' your lips
I'll call the sugar daddy downstairs with the gun
And you'll be gone, long gone, baby, long gone
