Verse # 1
A friend of mine said he felt just like a fool
Said his wife treats him so mean and down right cruel
Said he’s ready to leave’er , tell’er that he’s through
Well let me tell you what I found , before you do

Verse # 2
When I left mine I found the poverty line
Yep I found that I’m busted , all of the time
Another thing that I found that really bothers me
That woman treats her new man like he’s royalty

Chorus
I’m tellin’ ya , I’ve been there and I’ve done that
Ah She’ll take everything you have , and brother that’s a fact
It’s cheaper to keep’er , that what I always say
Yep , it’s cheaper to keep’er , I found out the hard way

Instrumental

Verse # 3
She took the house and I got all of the bills
But , that woman sure could put together a home cooked meal
So , I tried to get her back , but it was to no avail
She told me that I could go , right straight to ---- well

Bridge
If you still wanna tell that woman you’re through
You’ll be singing the blues by the time she’s thru with you

Chorus

I’m tellin’ ya , I’ve been there and I’ve done that
She’ll take everything you have , and brother that’s a fact
It’s cheaper to keep’er , that’s what I always say
Ohoo , it’s cheaper to keep’er , I found out the hard way

Tag
Yeah it’s cheaper to keep’er , and that’s all I have to say
