Sweet Thang Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I slipped out of the house about sundown
While mama was a washin' her hair
And you can bet your bottom dollar she'll come lookin' for me
When she'll find that I'm not there

And if she catches her sweet thang slipping around
I know there'll be the debit to pay
'Cause she'll come blowin' like a cyclone right through that door
And I hear exactly what she'll say

Well has anybody here see sweet thang
I got a notion he'd be headed this way
'Cause when my sweet thang's out tomocattin' around
Finds a sandbox like this to play

I wanna warn all you barroom roses
If my sweet thang should have a bite
You'd better take my advice if you'll blink more than twice
You'd better have somethin' in your eyes

I gave my baby all my money on payday
Except a little she don't know that I got
'Cause there's a little cute waitress down at the corner cafe
And she seems to like me quite a lot

We were sittin' in the back booth, havin' a chair
And she believed in every word that I said
When that door blew open and mama walked in
Yellin' loud enough to wake the dead and she said

Well has anybody here see sweet thang
I got a notion he'd be headed this way
'Cause when my sweet thang's out tomocattin' around
Finds a sandbox like this to play

I wanna warn all you barroom roses
If my sweet thang should have a bite
You'd better take my advice if you'll blink more than twice
You'd better have somethin' in your eyes
You'd better take my advice if you'll blink more than twice
You'd better have somethin' in your eyes
