Putting It Away

she took one look, then she headed for the door
over her shoulder told me the score
said “I like you baby, but my time is tight,
so keep it safe for me come Saturday night.
I’ll show you how, with my own special style
Promise you it’ll be worth your while.”
So I’m putting it away. That’s right I’m putting it away
I ain’t taking the bait, she worth the wait
Momma I’m putting it away

Went to the bar to bide my time
I heard a voice say “Daddy you sure look fine”
She came up close, she came on strong
Felt like it was right, but I knew it was wrong
Tried to be polite, but I made it clear
Then I got myself right out of there
So I’m putting it away. That’s right I’m putting it away
I ain’t taking the bait, she worth the wait
Momma I’m putting it away

The clock struck nine, then it struck ten
I called her once, then I called her again
I’m sorry my sweetie, I just can’t leave
working in overtime, but you better believe
Gonna make you shout, gonna make you yell
Gonna charm that turtle right out of his shell
So I’m putting it away. That’s right I’m putting it away
I ain’t taking the bait, she worth the wait
Momma I’m putting it away
Fell asleep I waited so long
When I woke up she was in my arms
She loved me so gentle, she rocked me so hard
we scared the chickens in my neighbors back yard
She loved me to the left then she loved me to the right
She loved me right through to next Saturday
‘Cause I’m putting it away. That’s right I put it all away
I didn’t take the bait, she’s worth the wait
Momma I’m putting it away
