Lyrics:

Give me back my wig
Honey now let your head go bald.
Give me back my wig
Honey now let your head go bald.
Really didn’t have no business
Honey buyin’ you no wig at all.

Takin’ me downtown
Say four forty nine,
When I get down there
I swear, nine ninety nine.

You just give me back my wig
Honey now let your head go bald.
Really didn’t have no business
Honey buyin’ you no wig at all.

Yeah my Mama told me
And your good friend too,
When you get that wig
That’s the way you gonna do.

You just give me back my wig
Honey now let your head go bald.
Really didn’t have no business
Honey buyin’ you no wig at all.

Goodbye little one
All I got to say.
Give me back my wig and be
On your merry way.

You just give me back my wig
Honey, now let your head go bald.
Really didn’t have no business
Honey buyin’ you no wig at all
