Lyrics

Now here ya come baby
With yer tail draggin` the gravy
Y` know yer P`s `n Q`s
What ya don`t know baby

Is you givin` me the blues
Ya got juice on your chin
Eggs on the drain-board
Pie on the wall

Dirt on the rug
I come home late
`N I stumbled `n swore
Ya won`t even give me a hug

Ya had my things all laid out by the door
I`m leavin`
I`m gonna take up with ah mermaid
`N leave you land lubbin` women alone

`N leave you land-lubbin` women alone
Ya said ya had it together once
Now yer head`s around the bend
I`m tellin` ya woman

Ya better get it bach together again
I`m gonna grow fins
`N go back in the water again
If ya don`t leave me alone

I`m gonna take up with ah mermaid
`N leave you land-lubbin` women alone
`N leave you land-lubbin` women alone
Now here ya come baby

With yer tail draggin` the gravy
Ya know yer P`s `n Q`s
What ya don`t know woman
Is yer givin` me the blues
