Look who's back in town, ain't nobody but Sally Sue Brown
All you boys better run for cover if you don't want to be a broken-hearted lover
See her in that real tight skirt, she's got what it takes just to make you hurt
Don't be fooled by her big brown eyes
She's made of cheating misery and low down lies

Makes no difference where she's been
I know Sal's been doing those things again
Breaking hearts all down the line
Like she broke that poor heart of mine

Like a fool I'm on my way, like a fool I know I'm gonna say
"Glad you're back, Sally Sue Brown, please let me love you, baby
Don't put me down"

Makes no difference where she's been
I know Sal's been doing those things again
Breaking hearts all down the line
Like she broke that poor heart of mine

Here I go, I'm on my way, like a fool I know I'm gonna say
"Glad you're back, Sally Sue Brown, please let me love you, baby
Don't put me down"
Don't put me down
You're no good, but I love you
Yes, I love you
You're no good, you're no good, you're no good, you're no good
You're no good, you're no good, you're no good, you're no good
