Clean Up Woman (Single/LP Version)

Clean Up Woman (Single/LP Version)

Betty Wright

A clean up woman is a woman who
Gets all the love we girls leave behind.
The reason I know so much about her
Is because she picked up a man of mine.

Jumpin' slick was my ruin,
'Cause I found out all I was doin'
Was makin' it easy for the clean up woman
To get my man's love, aww, yeah.
Just makin' it easy for the clean up woman
To get my baby's love, huh-huh.

I took this man's love and put it on a shelf,
And, like a fool, I thought I had him all to myself.
When he needed love, I was out havin' fun,
But I found out that all I had done
Was made it easy for the clean up woman
To get my man's love, huh-huh.
Yeah, that's what I did:
I made it easy for the clean up woman
To steal my baby's love, aw, yeah.

The clean up woman will wipe his blues away.
She'll give him plenty lovin', 24 hours a day.
The clean up woman, she'll sweep him off his feet.
She's the one who'll take him in when you dump him in the street.
So take a tip, you better get hip
To the clean up woman, 'cause she's tough.
I mean, she really cleans up.
