Well, a nickel is a nickel, a dime is a dime
I need a new man, Lord I know I won't mind

How long, dear do I have to wait?
Can I get you now, dear must I hesitate?

Well now, eagle on the dollar says "In God we trust"
You say you won't obey me, you wanna see the dollar first

How long dear, do I have to wait?
Can I get you now dear, must I hesitate?

Lord, if the river was made of whisky I was a duck
I'd just swim to the bottom and I'd never come up

How long dear do I have to wait?
Why can I get you now, dear must I hesitate?

Now there's rocks down in the ocean and there's fish in the sea
I know you mean the whole world to me

How long dear must I have to wait?
Can I get you now, dear must I hesitate?

I got them hesitation stockings, I got them hesitation shoes
Lord knows I got them hesitation blues

Tell me, how long do I have to wait?
Why can I get you now, dear must I hesitate?
Yeah!
