Lyrics verse 1:
WHEN LIFE SEEMS FULL
OF CLOUDS AND RAIN,
AND I AM FILLED
WITH NAUGHT BUT PAIN,
WHO SOOTHES MY THUMPING,
BUMPING BRAIN?
spoken NOBODY!
sung WHEN WINTER COMES
WITH SNOW AND SLEET,
AND ME WITH HUNGER
AND COLD FEET,
WHO SAYS
HERE'S TWO-BITS,
GO AND EAT?
spoken NOBODY!

Chorus:
sung I AIN'T NEVER
DONE NOTHING
TO NOBODY
I AIN'T NEVER
GOT NOTHING
FROM NOBODY,
NO TIME:
AND UNTIL
I GET SOMETHING
FROM SOMEBODY,
SOMETIME,
I DON'T INTEND
TO DO NOTHING
FOR NOBODY
NO TIME.

verse 2:
WHEN SUMMER COMES
ALL COOL
AND CLEAR,
AND FRIENDS SEE ME
DRAWING NEAR,
WHO SAYS
COME IN
AND HAVE A BEER?
spoken NOBODY!
sung I HAD A STEAK
SOME TIME AGO,
WITH SAUCE
I SPRINKLED IT
ALL OH!
WHO SAID
THAT SAUCE IS TABASCO?
spoken NOBODY!

Chorus:
sung I AIN'T NEVER
DONE NOTHING
TO NOBODY
I AIN'T NEVER
GOT NOTHING
FROM NOBODY,
NO TIME:
AND UNTIL
I GET SOMETHING
FROM SOMEBODY,
SOMETIME,
I DON'T INTEND
TO DO NOTHING
FOR NOBODY
NO TIME.

verse 3:
WHEN I TRY HARD,
AND SCHEME
AND PLAN,
TO LOOK AS GOOD
AS EVER I CAN,
WHO SAYS
LOOK AT THAT
HANDSOME MAN?
spoken NOBODY!
sung WHEN ALL DAY LONG
THINGS GO AMISS,
WHEN I GO HOME
TO FIND SOME BLISS,
WHO HANDS TO ME
A GLOWING KISS?
spoken NOBODY!
