Lyrics

Lord have mercy! I wanna write a letter so bad, I don't know what to do! I lay down last night, couldn't eat a bite, The woman I love don't treat me right! Lead in my pencil, babe it's done gone bad, And it's the worst old feelin', baby, that I've ever had! I woke up this mornin', my baby says she's mighty mad, 'Cause the lead in my pencil, it's done gone bad! Lead in my pencil, babe it's done gone bad, And it's the worst old feelin' that I've ever had! My baby told me this mornin' she's feelin' mighty blue, Lead in my pencil just wouldn't do! And she said, "Been ready all night; Lead in your pencil daddy, just won't write!". Lead in my pencil, babe it's just not right, And it's the worst old feelin;, baby, that I've ever had! And my baby says whe's goin' to quit me, I'll tell you for this reason why, Lead in my pencil gone bye-bye! Laid down last night, couldn't help but cry, Wanted to write so bad, I was about to die! Lead in my pencil, babe it's done gone bad, And it's the worst old feelin' baby, that I've ever had!
