Lyrics

I don't want you to be no slave
I don't want you to wake all day
I don't want you to be true
I just want to make love to you
I don't want you to wash my clothes
I don't want you to keep our home
I don't want your money too
I just want to make love to you
Love to you
Love to you
Love to you
They tell about the way you
Switch and walk
Now I can see by the way you
Baby talk
Now I can know by the way you
Treat your man
That I could love you baby until' the
Cryin' shame
I don't want you to cook my bread
I don't want you to make my bed
I don't want you because I'm sad and blue
I just want to make love to you
Love to you
Love to you
Love to you
