Well, I've already had two beers
I'm ready for the broom
Please, Mrs. Henry, won't you
Take me to my room?

I'm a good ol' boy
But I've been sniffin' too many eggs
Talkin' to too many people
Drinkin' too many kegs

Please, Mrs. Henry, Mrs. Henry, please
Please, Mrs. Henry, Mrs. Henry, please
I'm down on my knees an' I ain't got a dime

Well, I'm groanin' in a hallway
Pretty soon I'll be mad
Please, Mrs. Henry, won't you
Take me to your dad?

I can drink like a fish
I can crawl like a snake
I can bite like a turkey
I can slam like a drake

Please, Mrs. Henry, Mrs. Henry, please
Please, Mrs. Henry, Mrs. Henry, please
I'm down on my knees an' I ain't got a dime

Now, don't crowd me, lady
Or I'll fill up your shoe
I'm a sweet bourbon daddy
An' tonight I am blue

I'm a thousand years old
I'm a generous bomb
I'm T-boned and punctured
I've been known to be calm

Please, Mrs. Henry, Mrs. Henry, please
Please, Mrs. Henry, Mrs. Henry, please
I'm down on my knees an' I ain't got a dime

Now, I'm startin' to drain
My stool's gonna squeak
If I walk too much farther
My crane's gonna leak

Look, Mrs. Henry
There's only so much I can do
Why don't you look my way
An' pump me a few?

Please, Mrs. Henry, Mrs. Henry, please
Please, Mrs. Henry, Mrs. Henry, please
I'm down on my knees an' I ain't got a dime
