Wealthy Dee

Wealthy Dee don’t need no grace
Pearly-toothed smile
She ain’t nobody’s wife.
Cooking in the kitchen
for whoever be home,
Wealthy Dee is gold to the bone.
She’s smilin’ away to the men gone walkin by,
she’ll rise up in the mornin’
bake them men a pie.
Wealthy Dee she ain’t pretty,
but god almightyshe
sho’ is a lady. My heart is breaking
all over again
Just from one kiss that didn’t mean no thing.
I was so lonely
what could I do?
But I ain’t in love
with old you know who,
That Wealthy Dee, she don’t need no grace
Pearly-toothed smile
She ain’t nobody’s wife.
