"Why Are People Like That?"



Amazon purchase link.

Lyrics by Bobby Charles

they take your love and your money
they take your sugar and your honey
they’ll take you skinny or fat
why are people like that?

they take your house and your home
they take the flesh from your bones
they take the shirt off your back
why are people like that?

[Junior’s harp]

they take your phone and your clock
take everything that you got
they laugh behind your back
why are people like that?

[guitar solos]

they take your love and your money
they take your sugar and your honey
they’ll take you skinny or fat
why are people like that?
they take your phone or your clock
they take everything that you got
they take the shirt off your back

why are people like that?

They’ll take your dog and your car,
They’ll promise you’ll be a star.
They’ll break your heart and leave you flat,
Why are people like that?
I don’t know why they act like that,
Why are people like that?

...Don’t be like that...
