Lyrics:
I don't want nobody, always
Sittin' around me and my man
I said, I don't want nobody, always
Sittin' right there
Lookin' at me and that man
Be it my mother, my brother, or my sister
Would you believe, I'll get up
Put on some clothes
Go out and help them find somebody fo' they self,
if I can
Yes I will!

Now I don't mind company
Because company's alright with me
Every once in awhile
Yes it is,
I tell ya I don't mind company
Because company is alright with me
Every once in awhile, yeah
But Ooooooooooooooh
When me and that man get to lovin'
I tell ya girls, I dig ya, but I don't have time
To sit, and chit, and sit and chit-chat and smile

Don't send me no doctor
Fillin' me up with all a those pills
Got me a man named Doctor Feelgood
And oh! Yeah!
That man takes care of all my pains and my ills
His name is Doctor Feeeeeelgood in the morning
Takin' care o business is really this man's game
And after one visit to Dr. Feelgood,
You'll understand why Feelgood, is his naaaaaame.
Ooooh, yeah! Good God a-mighty
The man sho makes me feel real...
Goooooooood!
