"Sweet Thang" lyrics

Sweet Thang

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 looking for me
When she finds that I'm not there

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

"Well, has anybody here see sweet thang?
I got a notion he'll be headed this a way
Cause when my sweet thang is out
Tomcatting 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'll blink more than twice
You'd better have something 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 cute little waitress
At the corner cafe
And she seems to like me quite a lot

While we were sitting in this back booth
And having a talk
And she believed in every word that I said
When the door blew open
Loretta walked in
Yelling loud enough to wake the dead

"Well, has anybody here see sweet thang?
I got a notion he'll be headed this a way
Cause when my sweet thang is out
Tomcatting 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'll blink more than twice
You'd better have something in your eyes

You'd better take my advice
And if you'll blink more than twice
You'd better have something in your eyes"
