My poor broke mama told me
When I was twelve years old
See you eat, talk, get mad too fast
There's one thing you should know

Just take your time my sweet baby
Take your time my blue eyed son
Well you may never have his money
But you won't miss no rich man's fun

Well, I can never give you money honey
I can never buy you clothes
But the way them women been look at you
Someday you should have both

If you take your time my sweet baby
Take your time and love 'em slow
And if you play your cards right now
You won't never wait no more, oh

Yeah, well, the ladies like their diamonds
They like their brand new clothes
But I was blessed with plenty
Of the thing they love the most

I take my time with the ladies
I take my time and I love 'em slow
And since I turned thirteen
Lord, I ain't never wait no more
[Incomprehensible]

Yeah, I can never give you that money honey
I can never buy you clothes
But the way them schoolgirls look at you
Someday you gonna have both

Take your time my sweet baby
Take your time and be my son, yeah
Well you might never have his money
But you won't miss no rich man's fun

Baby, yeah
Oh yeah

Ooh, well, ladies like their diamonds
I tell ya, like their brand new clothes
But I was blessed with plenty
Of the thing they love the most, ooh

I take my time with the ladies
I take my time, I love 'em slow
And since I turned thirteen
Lord, I ain't never wait no more
