Lyrics

Let's take it slow

I'm sitting on my porch-front
I've had a glass or two
the sun is sinking one more time
got nothin' else to do

Let's take it slow
let's take it easy
come on, let it go
come on, sit beside me
let's take it slow
let's take it easy
come on, let it go
come on sit beside me

The birds are high up in their nests
tomorrow they will sing
but now the stars poke out the sky
and I can't hear a thing

Let's take it slow
let's take it easy
come on, let it go
come on, sit beside me
let's take it slow
let's take it easy
come on, let it go
come on sit beside me
Let's take it slow
let's take it easy

There's always time to work
there's always time to play
but if you don't watch out
I bet you may forget

To take it slow
to take it easy
come on, let it go
come on, sit beside me
Let's take it slow
let's take it easy
come on, let it go
come on, sit beside me
let's take it slow
let's take it easy
