Lyrics: First verse Honey, it's all off between us two, You've done all the trifflin' you will do; Just meander, for I'm thro' with you, Don't you stay, I'm busy today, So travel on your way. Save all that explanatory stuff, Move on, kid, or I will use you rough; I'm thro' most fluently, enough's enough, And that's the reason I say: Chorus You can have it, I don’t want it, I mean your love and your sympathy; I mean the heart that you gave to me, Don’t you hang around me but just let me be. You can have it, I don’t want it, That’s what I say; Now don’t you call me honey names, for I refuse, ‘Cause ever since we met I’ve had the “Weary Blues,” You can have it, I don’t want it, Honey, take it away! You can have it, I don’t want it, I mean your love and your sympathy; I mean the heart that you gave to me, Don’t you hang around me but just let me be. You can have it, I don’t want it, That’s what I say; I’ve got another sweetie now, the kind that’s right, I’m positively thro’ with you goodbye! goodnight! You can have it, I don’t want it, Honey, take it away!
Second verse Honey, don’t you argue anymore, Ev’ry time you speak you make me sore; I have told you, many times before, You’re in bad, you’re makin’ me mad, You’ll wish you never had. My new sweetie has a classy style, And I’m sure will stick around awhile, And had the cutest little smile, smile, smile, The kind that makes me feel glad.
