Lyrics

I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE AFTER
(McCormick/ Flowerree/Allen/ Kimball)
?=120

I just came in to take a load of my feet
And park my butt/self on this stool
When you walked in and sat next to me
I thought, "OK Sugar that's cool"
What's that you say, "Have I got a name?"
Depends on who wants to know
Go ahead and laugh and I'll take that drink
As long as I can drink it alone

Maybe I'm kiddin'; maybe I'm not
But I'll take a beer while you take your shot

I know what you're after
And you'll get there faster
If you'll just slow down
Slow down, take the long way around
If you waste your time on worn out lines
You're gonna leave a little wiser and sadder
Honey I know - I know what you're after


For such a smooth talker you sure got quiet,
What's the matter, cat got your tongue?
I think it's time for another drink
Uh-uh-uh, I'll get this one
Tell me a little something about yourself
Like what you do, and where you're from
Don't need to light the world on fire tonight
Skip the bull, let's keep it fun

In case you're wonderin' if you stand a chance
News flash: Honey, girls like to dance

I know what you're after
And you'll get there faster
If you'll just slow down and take the long way around
Slow down and take the long way around
Don't waste your time on worn out lines
You're gonna leave a little wiser and sadder
Cuz Honey I know - I know what you're after
