Hang out the front door key

Percy Wilson Gay left his wife one day
Then she'd always says'be home on time'
Don't have me a-waitin' here when dinner time comes near
Be here when we set down to dine

He promised her he would, then he swore he'd be good
Percy never could quite settle down
For when his work was thru he'd find a friend or two
They would just play around the town

He called her on the telephone
This is what he'd sing to her alone
Hang out the front door key love
Hang out the front door key

Don't wait up for me love I may be out 'til three
I'm with a very sick friend love who'd do the same for me
So leave a light in hte fall tonight
And hang out the front door key

One nigtht when he got home he found himself alone
Where she had gone he knew not where
Although it served him right he had an awful fright
To think he could not find her there

She called him up and three said'yes dear this is me'
How does it seem to be at home all alone
I'm with some freinds of mine, having so good a time
I don't know just when I'll be home

On the table he found a little note
He poened it and this is what it wrote
Hang out the front door key love
Hang out the front door key

Set upb awhile for me love just as I have for thee
I'm with a very sick friend love who thinks a lot of me
Your little wife's gonna like night life
So hang out the front door key
