Reforming a rounder

Inspired by the best rockabilly band around these parts, The Tennessee Rounders. Their (former) drummer, a fine upstanding young man, revealed that they are not always the best boyfriends for a girl to have. This song came out of that conversation. Would

Lyrics

Hey, Rounder
© 2005 Martha Ann Brooks (BMI)

Hey rounder, rounder, rounder
Better get yourself back home
How you ever gonna keep a good girl
When you?re honky tonkin? til dawn
If she?s not with you
Better leave this place alone

Chorus:

You got to
Go to church on Sunday
Go to work on Monday
Cut the grass on Tuesday
Wednesday wash the clothes and
Thursday fix the supper
Friday dry the dishes
Saturday night get all your wishes
Promise you boy if you toe the mark
You?re gonna walk right into that good girl?s heart

Hey rounder, rounder, rounder
What you waitin for?
You oughta be a turnin on your heel now
Better walk back out that door
Take care of that girl
Don?t come down here no more

(Repeat Chorus)

Hey rounder, rounder, rounder
Better get yourself back home
How you ever gonna keep a good girl
When you?re honky tonkin? til dawn
If she?s not with you
Better leave this place alone

Hey Rounder, Hey Rounder, Go home Rounder
