Slippin' and a-slidin', peepin' and a-hidin'
Been told a long time ago
Slippin' and a-slidin', peepin' and a-hidin'
Been told a long time ago
I've been told, baby, you've been bold
I won't be your fool no more

Oh, big conniver, ain't nothin' but a jiver
I done got hip to her jive
Oh, big conniver, ain't nothin' but a jiver
Done got hip to her jive

Slippin' and a-slidin', peepin' and a-hidin'
And I won't be your fool no more

Oh, Miss. Melinda, she's a solid sender
That girl, she'd better surrender
Oh, Miss. Melinda, she's a solid sender
You know you better surrender

Slippin' and slidin', peepin' and hidin'
And I won't be your fool no more

You be slippin' and a-slidin', peepin' and a-hidin'
Been told a long time a time ago
Slippin' and a-slidin', peepin' and a-hidin'
Been told a long time ago
I've been told, baby, you've been bold
I won't be your fool no more

I said you, oh, Miss. Melinda, you ain't nothin' but a sender
Better, better to surrender girl
Oh, Miss. Melinda, ain't nothin' but a sender
You know you better surrender

You be slippin' and a-slidin', peepin' and a-hidin'
I won't be your fool no more
Slippin' and a-slidin', peepin' and a-hidin'
I won't be your fool no more
