Ain't No Way To Treat A Lady

(Ian Hunter)

He likes to wear thousand dollar suits
He likes to lift weights, do little too
He likes to show off in front of all your friends
And then you go home and you beat her up again

That's no way to treat a lady (ain't no way)
You as low as low you can be
That's no way to treat a lady (ain't no way)
If you don't respect her set her free
He never comforts her when she cries
The only tissues you got are lies
Her body shocked, her face is black and blue
How could she ever love scum like you

That's no way to treat a lady
There's something wicked there in your brain
That's no way to treat a lady
You're pretty dumb so I'll say it once again

Ain't no way, Ain't no way, (Ain't no way)
Ain't no way to treat a lady
No it ain't no way, Ain't no way, (Ain't no way)
It ain't no way to treat a lady

He never picked her up when she fell
You never gave her anything but hell
You don't support her even though she's got your kids
And you're trying to destroy her, best thing that you ever did

That's no way to treat a lady
You never learn, you're as stubborn as a mule
That's no way to treat a lady
There's ain't no fool like a young fool

Her feet are aching
Her back is breaking
Her nerves are shaking
From the crap she's taking
Her hands are raw
Her heart is sore
She doesn't know when she can take any more

He likes to play dirty little games
He likes to call her dirty little names
She got no money, she got nothing left of her
And everywhere she looks all she sees is dirt
That's no way to treat a lady (ain't no way)
You as low as low you can be
That's no way to treat a lady Your dirty little secret is safe with me
