Lyrics

That's where my money goes To buy my baby clothes Nobody's business what I do Nobody's business, nobody's business Nobody's business what I do Sliced ham and pickled feet Ham and eggs and sausage meat Nobody's business what I eat Nobody's business, nobody's business Nobody's business what I do Some day I'll wake up crazy Kill my wife and save my baby Nobody's business what I do Nobody's business, nobody's business Nobody's business what I do She rides the limousine I crank the old machine Nobody's business what I do Nobody's business, nobody's business Nobody's business what I do
