This side of the street
don't get the afternoon sun.

My hip and my leg
ache me somethin' awful.

I got the hairbrush!
Uh, Marnie, mind my leg.
(Mama) I never had time
to take care of Marnie 's hair

when she was a little kid like you.
- How come?
- Oh, child!

Well, after I had my bad accident,
first I was sick so long,
and then I had to work.

(Jessie) Didn't you all have
a daddy either?

No, we didn't. We surely did not!
As pretty as brushin' can make you.
Oh, sugarpop, it's five after 6:00.
You better scat on home.

And you be sure to take
your mama those glads.

How ' bout my pie?
How ' bout my pecan pie?

I ' ll get it done tonight
and bring it over to you.

Now, Jessie, you mind
you go straight home.

OK. Bye, Miss Bernice.
See you later, Miss Bernice.

(Door Opens, Closes)
Do you really like the scarf, Mama?
It's real mink.
Oh, there. You look
just like an old man's darling.

No man ever give me
anything so good.

We don't need men, Mama.
We can do very well for ourselves.
You and me.

A decent woman
don't have need for any man.

Look at you, Marnie.
