Nobody Walkin'

I left my baby standing in a backdoor crying
I left my baby standing in a backdoor crying
She said "you got a home as long as I got mine"
She said "you got a home as long as I got mine"

And nobody walking, nobody talking
Ever pay the price I owe her
Ah, there ain't nobody living, nobody giving
Ever pay the price I owe her

But sometimes you gotta turn your back
Ah, sometimes you gotta turn your back
Just to show that little girl
That there is something she's gonna lack
Just to show that little girl
There's something more that you desire

Nobody walking nobody talking
Ever pay the price
Nobody living, anybody giving
Ever pay the price I owe her

I don't need it to rain
I don't need it to rain
I don't need it to rain
Oh to rain

Well i know you've been turning tricks honey
Up and down the avenue
And I've been trying to tease you
Oh, just to see what you'd do
I don't need it to rain
I don't need it to rain
No more

When that storm comes raining down
When that storm comes raining down
There ain't gonna be nobody, honey
Oh to keep you warm
Ain't gonna be nobody mama here to keep you warm
No more

Ah there ain't nobody walking nobody talking
Ever pay the price not for you honey
There ain't nobody living nobody giving
Ever pay the price I owe
Not to rain not to rain not to rain
Mama not to rain
