Clean Up Woman


A clean up woman is a woman who

Gets all the love we girls leave behind

The reason I know so much about her

Is because she picked up a man of mine

Jumpin’ slick was my ruin

‘Cause I found out all I was doin’

Was making it easy for the clean up woman

To get my man’s love, oh yeah

Just making it easy for the clean up woman

To get my baby’s love, uh-huh, mhm

I took this man’s love and put it on a shelf

And like a fool, I thought I had him all to myself

When he needed love, I was out having fun

But I found out that all I had done

Was made it easy for the clean up woman

To get my man’s love, uh-huh

Yeah, that’s what I did

I made it easy for the clean up woman

To steal my baby’s love, oh yeah

The clean up woman will wipe his blues away

She’ll give him plenty lovin’ 24 hours a day

The clean up woman, she’ll sweep him off his feet

She’s the one who’ll take him in when you dump him in the street

So take a tip, you better get hip

To the clean up woman ’cause she’s tough

I mean, she really cleans up
