You Better Keep It on Your Mind Lyrics

by Hank Williams

Now if you go out and start a playing around
Your babys gonna tear your playhouse down
You better keep it on your mind all the time
You better keep it on your mind all the time

Youll be moanin and a groanin
Lord, you better keep it on your mind

Now wrong is wrong and right is right
If you make a snake mad hes sure gonna bite
You better keep it on your mind all the time
You better keep it on your mind all the time

Ive had it proven to me
Lord you better keep it on your mind

Every fuss with a woman has got the same ole end
I dont believe the good Lord meant for a man to win
You better keep it on your mind all the time
You better keep it on your mind all the time

Youll be singing blue and lonesome
Lord, you better keep it on your mind

If you make your baby mad and she says goodbye
There aint a thing you can do but sit at home and cry
You better keep it on your mind all the time
You better keep it on your mind all the time

You better call her sweet mama
Lord, you better keep it on your mind

If the judge says, "Pay her forty dollars a week"
Youll dig up the money or youll work the streets
You better keep it on your mind all the time
You better keep it on your mind all the time

When youre wearing striped britches
Son, its gonna stay on your mind

So kiss her every mornin and love her every night
Boy, you cant win no matter if youre right
You better keep it on your mind all the time
You better keep it on your mind all the time

You better heed this warning
Lord, you better keep it on your mind
