Betty Wright (born December 21, 1953, in Miami, Florida) is a soul and R&B singer, who influenced a generation of female singer-songwriters and also influenced the world of hip hop, who sampled some of her more famous material. Born singing gospel with the family group, the Echoes of Joy, Wright began switching to R&B music in 1965 when she was only 11. In 1968, she released her first album, My First Time Around, at the age of 15, and scored her first hit, "Girls Can't Do What Guys Can Do". But it was not until the end of 1971 that Wright's most successful phase of her career took place.

- LyricsA clean up woman, is a woman who gets all the love
We girls leave behind the reason I know
So much about her, is because she picked up a man of mine
Chumpin' slick was my ruin 'cause I found out all I was doin'
I was makin' it easy for the clean up woman
