Sweet Thang Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

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

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

Well, has anybody here seen sweet thang
I got a notion he'll be headed this-a way
Cause when my sweet thang is out tomocattin' around
He finds a sandbox like this to play

I wanna tell all you barroom roses
If my sweet thang does happen by
You'd better take my advice
And if you blink more than twice
You'd better have something in your eyes

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

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

Well, has anybody here seen sweet thang
I got a notion he'll be headed this-a way
Cause when my sweet thang is out tomocattin' around
He finds a sandbox like this to play

I wanna tell all you cafe cuties
If my sweet thang should have a bite
You'd better take mom's advice
If you'll blink more than twice
You'd better have something in your eyes

You take all mom's advice
If you'll blink more than twice
You'd better have something in your eyes
