Old Bi-Bibi
Where you been, baby?
Been to your friend in the White

Old Bi-Bibi
See you are back now
Got new instructions

Old Bi-Bibi
What’s wrong with you?
It ain’t your name
It’s the things you do

Old Bi-Bibi
don’t you know
It’s all over now

Old Bi-Bibi
You’ve been around too long
Gotta work the devil
‘Til your dead and gone

Old Bi-Bibi
Yes, don’t you know
It’s all over now
It’s all over now

Old Bi-Bibi

You know it’s true
When you hurt my brother
You hurt me too

Old Bi-Bibi,
Don’t you know
It’s all over now, yeah

Old Bi-Bibi
Thought I had you beat
Now I see you walkin’
And walkin’ up and down my street

Old Bi-Bibi, don’t you know
You got a room in jail, yeah

Old Bi-Bibi
You’ve been around too long
Gotta work the devil
‘Til your dead and gone

Old Bi-Bibi
don’t you know
It’s all over
All over
Oh Lord, it’s all over
All over

It’s all over
It’s all over
It’s all over now
Yeah
