If We're Not Back In Love By Monday Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

We can call Mrs. Johnson
To keep the kids a day or two
Take the early flight to Florida
Just the way we used to do

Have room service bring us breakfast
Make love all through the day
If we're not back in love by Monday
We can go our separate ways

If we're not back in love by Monday
We can't say we didn't try
But before we bury our love
Let's make sure we've let it die

Sleep a few more nights together
Say the things we used to say
If we're not back in love by Monday
We can go our separate ways

We could find that little cafe
With a funny sounding name
Get the table by the window
I'll say I love you once again

If the violin player's still there
We'll dance until the break of day
If we're not back in love by Monday
We can go our separate ways

If we're not back in love by Monday
We can't say we didn't try
But before we bury our love
Let's make sure we've let it die

Sleep a few more nights together
Say the things we used to say
If we're not back in love by Monday
We can go our separate ways
