When the Levee Breaks - A Perfect Circle

If it keeps on raining, levee s going to break,
If it keeps on raining, levee s going to break,
And the water gonna come in, have no place to stay

Well all last night I sat on the levee and moan,
Well all last night I sat on the levee and moan,
Thinking about my baby and my happy home,

If it keeps on raining, levee s going to break,
If it keeps on raining, levee s going to break,
And all these people have no place to stay

Now look here mama what am I to do?,
Now look here mama what am I to do?,
I ain t got nobody to tell my troubles to

I works on the levee mama both night and day,
I works on the levee mama both night and day,
I ain t got nobody, keep the water away

Oh crying won t help you, praying won t do no good,
Oh crying won t help you, praying won t do no good,
When the levee breaks, mama, you got to lose

I works on the levee, mama both night and day,
I works on the levee, mama both night and day,
I works so hard, to keep the water away

I had a woman, she wouldn t do for me,
I had a woman, she wouldn t do for me,
I m going back to my used to be

It s a mean old levee, cause me to weep and moan
It s a mean old levee, cause me to weep and moan
Gonna leave my baby, and my happy home
