YOU AIN'T GOT TNE RIGHT

YOU AIN'T GOT THE RIGHT TO TELL ME I'M NOT LONELY
CAUSE YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT I BEEN THROUGH
SHE HAD EVERY RIGHT TO DO THE WRONG THAT SHE DONE TO ME
AND THAT DON'T MAKE IT EASIER TO LOSE
AND THAT DON'T MAKE IT EASIER TO LOSE.

I WOKE UP WEDNESDAY MORNIN' WITH THE FEELIN' SHE WAS GONE
I TURNED TO FACE AN EMPTY PLACE AND I REALlZED
THAT I DIDN'T SMELL NO COFFEE AND ALL HER PRETTY CLOTHES WAS GONE
I CRIED THE FIRST OF THE MANY TEARS YOU'LL SEE ME CRYIN' FROM NOW ON.

AND YOU AIN'T GOT THE RIGHT TO TELL ME I'M NOT LONELY
CAUSE YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT I BEEN THROUGH...
SHE HAD EVERY RIGHT TO DO THE WRONG THAT SHE DONE TO ME
AND THAT DON'T MAKE IT EASIER TO LOSE
AND THAT DON'T MAKE IT EASIER TO LOSE.

I KNOW HER LIST OF LOVERS WAS JUST AS LONG AS MINE
BUT THE SOMETIME PLAN OF A NATURAL MAN IS TO SETTLE DOWN
BUT THE ONE TIME WAYS OF THAT WOMAN DONE BUSTED UP MY MIND
NOW SHE'S OUT THE DOOR AND SHE GOT ONE MORE ON HER LIST THAN I GOT ON MINE.

AND YOU AIN'T GOT THE RIGHT  TO TELL ME I'M NOT LONELY
CAUSE YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT I BEEN THROUGH
SHE HAD EVERY RIGHT  TO DO THE WRONG THAT SHE DONE TO ME
BUT THAT DON'T MAKE IT EASIER TO LOSE
AND THAT DON'T MAKE IT EASIER TO LOSE.

ITS DONNA BE A LONG TIME  'FORE I COME THIS WAY AGAIN
I BEEN DRAGGED THROUGH SCHOOL AND I LEARNED THE RULES
AND IT SEEMS TO ME
THAT A WOMAN'LL LOVE TO DO YA  BUT SHE WON'T ALWAYS DO YA NICE
SHE HAD HER TURN, I GUESS I LEARNED YOU KNOW SHE AIN'T GONNA DO ME TWICE.

AND YOU STILL AIN'T GOT THE RIGHT  TO TELL ME I'M NOT LONELY
CAUSE YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND  WHAT I BEEN THROUGH
SHE HAD EVERY RIGHT TO DO THE WRONG THAT SHE DONE TO ME
AND THAT DON'T MAKE IT EASIER TO LOSE
AND THAT DON'T MAKE IT EASIER TO LOSE.'
