Little Walter Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Too late, too late, too late
I'm tired of your deceivin'
And I can't stand your creepin', I'm gone
I'm tired of your deceivin'
And I can't stand your creepin', I'm gone

Too late, too late, too late
Tired of all the fussin'
And I can't stand your cursin', I'm gone
Tired of all the fussin'
And I can't stand your cursin', I'm gone

Gee, you know I love you
I don't know just why
Thought the whole world of you
But today I say bye bye, bye bye

Too late, too late, too late
Can't stand your cookin'
And you ain't good-lookin', I'm gone
Can't stand your cookin'
And you ain't good-lookin', I'm gone

Gee, you know I love you
I don't know just why
Thought the whole world of you
But today I say bye-bye, bye-bye

Too late, too late, too late
Can't stand your beatin'
And I know you been cheatin', I'm gone
Can't stand your beatin'
And I know you been cheatin', I'm gone





Can't stand your beatin'
And I know you been cheatin', I'm gone

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Little Walter's song Who are about a man who is fed up with his lover's deceitfulness, cursing, cooking, and beating. He has finally reached his breaking point and decided to leave the relationship. Although he still loves her, he cannot stay with her any longer. He has had enough of her abusive behavior and knows that he deserves better than that.


It's common to encounter romantic relationships where the other partner's behavior can be regarded as deceitful or manipulative. In this song, it's particularly interesting to find that the singer is leaving even though he loves her. It could be a sign of self-love and self-respect. He recognizes that just because he loves someone doesn't mean he should tolerate their toxic behavior.


Additionally, the song's lyrics reflect rock and roll music culture in America in the 1950s. The lyrics' theme is particularly relatable for the audience that was bound by similar circumstances. It's a classic tale of love lost and the heartache that comes with it.

Esther Gavillet

Willie Dixon's composition in the first Chess Records Period

Who (1956)
Who told you, that I was foolin' around,
Who told you that I was going to town,
Whoever told you baby, better get outta town.

Who told you that I was cheatin' last night,
Who told you that I ain't doin' what was right,
Whoever told you baby, better get outta sight.

People always talkin' about something they don't know,
They like to stir up trouble, 'cause they want to see a show,
Who told you that I was foolin' around,
Whoever told you baby, better get out of the town.

Some folks just stay happy that other feelin' as bad,
They get the biggest kick, when someone is feelin' bad,
Who told you that I was cheatin' last night,
Whoever told you baby, better get outta town.
