If you promise me
You'll be my man
I'm gonna love you
The best I can

Stick to the promise man
That you made me
Stick to the promise man
That you made me
Stick to the promise man
That you made me
That you stay away
From Rosalie

Oh daddy oh daddy
Oh daddy oh daddy
Oh daddy oh daddy
Oh daddy oh daddy

If you want me to
I'll cook and sew
If you want me to
I'll cook and sew
If you want me to
I'll cook and sew
Outside of you
There is no place to go

Please don't treat me so
Doggone mean
Please don't treat me so
Doggone mean
Please don't treat me so
Doggone mean

You're the meanest man
Ever seen

Oh daddy oh daddy
Oh daddy oh daddy
Oh daddy oh daddy
Oh daddy oh daddy

If you want me to
Cook and sew for you
If you want me to
Cook and sew for you
If you want me to
Cook and sew for you
Outside of you
There is no place to go

Please don't treat me so
Doggone mean now
Please don't treat me so
Doggone mean now
Please don't treat me so
Doggone mean now
You're the meanest man
Ever seen

Stick to the promise man
That you made me now
Stick to the promise man
That you made me now
Stick to the promise man
That you made me now
That you stay away
From Rosalie now

Oh daddy oh daddy
Oh daddy oh daddy
Oh daddy oh daddy
Oh daddy oh daddy

That's it

Cook and sew now
Outside of you
There is no place to go now

Please don't treat me so
Doggone mean now
Please don't treat me so
Doggone mean now
Please don't treat me so
Doggone mean now
You're the meanest man
Ever seen now

Stick to the promise man
That you made me now
Stick to the promise man
That you made me now
Stick to the promise man
That you made me now
Rosalie

Oh daddy

Oh oh daddy
Love me good now
Oh oh daddy
Love me good now
Oh oh daddy
Love me good
