Take Care Of Your Homework (Album Version)

Take Care Of Your Homework (Album Version)

Johnnie Taylor

Got to tell you true, I got to tell you true

Oh brother Jack, you goin' with sister Sadie
When you ought to be home with your old lady
But your heart is divided in so many pieces
Tryin' to please them both, never pleasin' neither

Oh Jack, take it on back
Before your good thing is gone
Because the downfall of too many men
Is up keep of too many women

So take care of your homework fella
Because somebody will, oh yeah
You better take care of your homework fella
If you don't somebody will
Now wait a minute, yeah

Oh brother Fred, how you can run
Stayin' out all night leavin' his homework undone
Now Fred's old lady, took as much as she could stand
Then one night the next door neighbor, gave a helping hand

Oh fella, take it on hold
Before your good thing is gone
Because the downfall of too many men
Is the up keep of too many women

So take care of your homework fella
If you don't somebody will, oh
[Incomprehensible]
You better take care of your homework fella
If you don't somebody will
Listen to me y'all

Take it on home
Get off the streets y'all
Take it on home
Alright

But fellas let me tell you
These girls are gettin' hip
You can only slide so long
Before you make a slip

Take care of your homework fella
If you don't somebody will
Oh, give me now, give me now, give me now
So take care of your homework fella
If you don't somebody will
Take it, take it, take it on home
[Incomprehensible]
