don’t mistake kindness for weakness lyrics – albert collins

you’ve been runnin’ in the streets again
but i’d never had a hand on you
i’ve been a better man this year
than all the men that you’ve been through
don’t mistake kindness for weakness
’cause a little girl, only a fool would stay with you

i tried so hard to please you, babe
i’ve even turned your lies to truth
i said, i tried so hard to please you, baby
i turned your lies to truth
but when you said were my baby
i think i got to ask you for more proof

don’t mistake kindness for weakness
’cause your chicken has come to roost
i said, don’t mistake kindness for weakness, baby
your chicken done come to roost
i think another man would be a fool
to try to hang around with you

i’m all done mister nice guy
but i ain’t playin’ around with your rules
if you think that’s liquor talkin’
you better try an’ get on back to school
so don’t mistake kindness for weakness
woman you done used up your, your last fool

/ albert collins lyrics
