Sweet Thing

Sweet Thing

What you gonna do when the liquor gives out, sweet thing?
What you gonna do when the liquor gives out, sweet thing?
What you gonna do when the liquor gives out,
Stand around the corner with your mouth in a pout,
Sweet thing, sweet thing, sweet thing.

What you gonna do when your shoes give out, sweet thing? (twice)
When my shoes give out, I'm gonna quit the street,
Take a chair and put a fan at my feet,
Sweet thing, sweet thing, sweet thing.

What you gonna do when your chair gives out, sweet thing? (twice)
When I got no liquor, no chair, no shoes,
I'll lay cross the bed, with my head in the blues,
Sweet thing, sweet thing, sweet thing.

Slats on the bed go blamety-blam, in the mornin', (twice)
Slats on the bed go blamety-blam,
But I'll keep on a-sleepin' like I don't give a damn,
Sweet thing, sweet thing, sweet thing.
