Lyrics YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU SO,
I'LL NEVER LET YOU GO;
AND DARLING,
I'LL BE TRUE,
FOR ALL MY LOVE BELONGS TO YOU.
YOU SET MY HEART AFIRE;
YOU ARE MY ONE DESIRE.
TELL ME YOU LOVE ME TOO,
FOR ALL MY LOVE BELONGS TO YOU.

THAT'S WHY I WANT YOU TO KNOW
I COULD NEVER LET YOU GO;
OUR LOVE WAS MEANT TO BE.
IT WOULD BE,
OH, SO THRILLING
TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE WILLING
TO SPEND YOUR LIFE WITH ME.

SO MAKE YOUR ANSWER YES;
YOU ARE MY HAPPINESS.
PLEASE DARLING SAY YOU DO,
FOR ALL MY LOVE BELONGS TO YOU.

Lyrics YOU MADE ME CRY
BECAUSE YOU SAID
GOODBYE,
AND TEARS FROM MY EYES
MADE ME SOON REALIZE
HOW BLUE
AND I JUST
CAN'T GO ON WITHOUT YOU.
WHY MUST I BE
ALONE IN MISERY?
BE FAIR TO MY HEART
JUST BY SAYING
WE'LL START ANEW
AND I JUST
CAN'T GO ON WITHOUT YOU.

I SIT AROUND
ALMOST INSANE,
I'VE GOT IT BAD,
GOING MAD OVER YOU.
MAYBE YOU'VE FOUND
A NEW REFRAIN,
IF IT'S TRUE,
I DON'T KNOW
WHAT I'LL DO;
I NEED ROMANCE,
SO GIVE ME
ONE MORE CHANCE.
I PRAY FOR THE DAY
THAT I'LL SOON HEAR YOU SAY
YOU DO
FOR I JUST
CAN'T GO ON WITHOUT YOU.

Lyrics IT WAS A LOVELY
SUNDAY MORNIN'
AND EV'RYONE WAS GAY.
EV'RYONE BUT DEACON JONES
WHO DID NOT FEEL THAT WAY.
HE WAS LOADED DOWN
WITH PILLS;
HE WAS PLASTERED
TO THE GILLS.
YOU COULD TELL IT;
YOU COULD SMELL IT
EV'RY TIME
YOU HEARD HIM YELL:

I FOUND OUT
WHO THREW THE WHISKEY
IN THE WELL.
YES, I KNOW
WHO THREW THE WHISKEY IN THE WELL.
YES, I'M SQUEALIN' ON MY FRIEND
'CAUSE HE WENT SOUTH WITH MY END.
YES, I KNOW
WHO THREW THE WHISKEY IN THE WELL.

DEACON JONES,
WHO THREW THE WHISKEY IN THE WELL?
DEACON JONES,
WHO THREW THE WHISKEY IN THE WELL?
I WILL TELL YOU IN A MINUTE
SOON AS I FIND OUT
WHAT'S IN IT.
YES, I KNOW
WHO THREW THE WHISKEY IN THE WELL.
I'M GONNA TELL
WHO THREW THE WHISKEY IN THE WELL.
I'M GONNA TELL
WHO THREW THE WHISKEY IN THE WELL.
WHEN YOU KNEEL DOWN ON YOUR KNEES
I WILL SET YOUR MIND AT EASE
'CAUSE I KNOW
WHO THREW THE WHISKEY IN THE WELL.

Lyrics I WANT A BOW-LEGGED WOMAN,
THAT'S ALL I WANT,
A BOW-LEGGED WOMAN
THAT'S TALL.
I'LL FALL IN LOVE WITH HER
RIGHT FROM THE START,
BECAUSE HER BIG FAT LEGS
ARE SO FAR APART.
I WANT A BOW-LEGGED WOMAN
RIGHT NOW,
I WANT TO FIND ME A GAL
SOMEHOW
SHE'S GOTTA BE BUILT
LIKE AN OLD BASS FIDDLE,
BIG BOW LEGS
WITH PLENTY ROOM
IN THE MIDDLE.
GOTTA BE ON MY WAY
TO FIND A BOW-LEGGED WOMAN
TODAY.

I WANT A BOW-LEGGED WOMAN RIGHT NOW,
I WANT TO FIND ME A GAL
SOMEHOW
SHE DON'T HAVE TO BE
NO GLAMOUR GIRL,
BUT SHE GOTTA HAVE HOOFS
LIKE A BIG OLD BEAR.
GOTTA BE ON MY WAY
TO FIND A BOW-LEGGED WOMAN
TODAY.

I FOUND A BOW-LEGGED WOMAN
LIST NIGHT,
AND MAN,
SHE WAS REALLY ALL RIGHT!
SHE HAD A SOLID STRADDLE
WHEN SHE CAME
INTO BATTLE,
I JUMPED
DEAD IN THE SADDLE,
YOU COULDN'T HEAR
A RATTLE,
AND THERE WAS NOBODY THERE
TO RUN AND TATTLE.
GOTTA BE ON MY WAY
TO BE
WITH MY BOW-LEGGED WOMAN
TODAY.

Lyrics LITTLE GIRL, DON'T CRY,
PLEASE DON'T CRY,
LITTLE GIRL,
FOR I WENT ASTRAY
BUT I'LL FIND MY WAY
BACK HOME.
LITTLE GIRL, DON'T CRY,
PLEASE DON'T CRY,
LITTLE GIRL,
FOR I'M LONELY TOO,
SO LONESOME
AND BLUE FOR YOU.

YOU KNOW I LOVED YOU
WHEN WE STARTED,

WHEN WE PARTED,
SO YOU KNOW DOGGONE WELL
I LOVE YOU NOW.
YOU KNOW
YOU MADE ME LOVE YOU,
I'LL PLACE NO ONE
ABOVE YOU.
SO I'M COMING HOME
TO YOU
FOR THAT'S THE ONLY THING
TO DO.

LITTLE GIRL, DON'T CRY,
PLEASE DON'T CRY,
LITTLE GIRL,
FOR I'LL BE AROUND
WHEN YOUR LOVE
COMES TUMBLIN' DOWN.

Lyrics I MISS YOU
MORE THAN YOU KNOW,
I MISS YOU
MORE THAN I SHOW,
MY HEART
KEEPS TELLING ME.
SO DARLING,
LOVE ME TONIGHT.
I HAVE
BUT ONE REAL DESIRE,
TO BE THE ONE
YOU ADMIRE.
IF THERE'S A SPARK
THERE'LL BE FIRE.
DARLING,
LOVE ME TONIGHT.

I WANT YOUR CHARMS,
I WANT YOUR ARMS
ALONE
TO HOLD ME TIGHT.
I WANT YOUR KISS,
THE KISS I MISS
TO BE THE JOY
OF OUR LOVE TONIGHT.

THERE IS BUT ONE MEMORY
HOW GREAT
OUR LOVE SHOULD BE,
GIVE ME A CHANCE
THEN YOU'LL SEE.
DARLING,
LOVE ME TONIGHT.

Lyrics SNEAKY PETE
MAKES YOU JUMP FOR JOY;
SNEAKY PETE
IS THE REAL McCOY.
SNEAKY PETE
IS THE JUICE
THAT SEEMS SO MILD;
AFTER TWO DRINKS
IT DRIVES YOU WILD.
SNEAKY PETE
MAKES YOUR EARS
GO POP;
SNEAKY PETE
HELPS YOU
BLOW YOUR TOP.
SNEAKY PETE
IS THE JIVE
THAT HITS THE SPOT;
AFTER ONE DRINK
YOUR BLOOD RUNS HOT.

IT FEELS SO GOOD
AS IT RUNS AROUND
WAY DOWN IN MY BELLY,
AND THEN IT TURNS AROUND
COMES UP MY SPINE;
MAKES ME FEEL
SO DOGGONE FINE.

SNEAKY PETE
MAKES YOU
LIE TO KIDS;
SNEAKY PETE
MAKES YOU
FLIP YOUR LID.
SNEAKY PETE
IS A DRINK
WELL UNDERSTOOD;
ONE GREAT SWIG,
YOU'RE OUT FOR GOOD!
