Listing to that clip, I would say the words are

"Tell me baby, which one of us would you rather" ..."rather" pronounced as "ruuh-ther"-- for the heck of it and to make it almost rhyme with lover and sort of sound like "other"

I could be wrong but that's my story and I'm sticking with it.

I have trouble with the last word; I think it's rather, but maybe the closely related 'druther.

My baby wants a mansion and a diamond ring
A big fine car and everything
Well I’m a natural born lover
Natural born lover
Now tell me baby
Which one of us would you rather?

Now all those luxuries don’t mean a thing
Well you can get yourself a real good thing
I’m a natural born lover
Natural born lover
Now tell me baby
Which one of us would you rather?

I don’t got no mansion, no diamond ring
A big fine car, don’t want a thing
Well I’m a natural born lover
Natural born lover
Now tell me baby
Which one of us would you rather?

My baby wants a mansion and a diamond ring
A big fine car and everything
Well I’m a natural born lover
Natural born lover
Now tell me baby
Which one of us would you rather?

The more I think about it, the more I think my home boy Joe has it right. It is rather, tortured to sort of rhyme with lover: which one of us would you rather (have)?

>>I have trouble with the last word; I think it's rather, but maybe the closely related 'druther.

I think the point is you're supposed to have trouble with it...

It's a blues song...poor dude is in such an awful situation it is hard to even say it right.
