Don't Answer The Door
B.B. King Lyrics


Woman, I don't wanna a soul
Hangin' around my house when I'm not at home

Oh, I don't want a soul, baby
Hangin' around my house when I'm not at home
I don't want you to answer the door for nobody, baby
Oh, when you're home and you know you're all alone

I don't want your sister coming by
Because the little girl she talk too much
If she wanna come either visit us
Tell her to meet us Sunday down at the church

'Cause I don't want a soul, baby
Hangin' around my house when I'm not at home
Yes, I don't want you to answer the door for nobody, baby
Oh, when you're home and you know you're all alone

If your mother wanna visit us
Tell her I get home 'bout the break a day
And that's too late that visit anybody, baby
So tell her to please stay away

'Cause I don't want a soul, baby
Hangin' around my house when I'm not at home
Yes, I don't want you to open the door for anybody, baby
Oh, when you're home and you know you're all alone

Now if you feel a little sick, baby
And you know you're home all alone
I don't want the doctor at my house, baby
You just suffer till I get home

'Cause I don't want a soul, baby
Hangin' around my house when I'm not at home
Yes, I don't want you to open the door for nobody, baby
Yeah, when you're home all alone

A group of us were having some drinks, playing music, and I decided to put this on. Not because I cared if anyone was interested but I wanted to hear it. Instantly everyone was enjoying it. Like King said, music is made for everybody to enjoy, and a musicians job is to put a smile on the listeners face. Such a great man, and so much feeling in his playing and singing. I miss him! R.I.P King.

Music Addict

The best feeling. 🙂

Hey!.. I feel ya.. I only listen to dark metal music.. BUT! You never go wrong with the king! NEVER!

@Lollie Pops I listen to it regularly. I'm a sexist and I enjoy listening to BB put his women in line! Howling Wolf is another great misogynist as is Skip James, author of I'm So Glad. Sonny Boy Williamson sings "Whup her when she need it, judge will not let you explain." Lightnin' Hopkins is even grimmer. "Bring me my shotgun …" Lighten up, Lightnin'!

@DucksDeLucks maybe you should give it another 👂listen👀

This just ain't how we should view music. Music is for us to enjoy, and be creative. It's ok if they don't like BB King, it's ok if they like pop music and stuff like that. We all have different reasons to listen to music, but we all still love it and ain't that the reason it's so amazing. We shouldn't look at music in this negative way.

I have to admit when I was a kid, I hated his music...my dad played it ALL THE TIME...I am a convert now, thankfully
