Need A Little Time Off For Bad Behavior (Album Version)

David Allan Coe

I need a little time off for bad behavior
The devil in me done been asleep too long
I need a little time off for bad behavior
It looks like I been too good for too long

Well I'm up and gone at the break of dawn I've workin' like a regular dog
To keep the woman and the lights and the water and the phone turned on
I've been sayin', "Yes sir" all day at work
I've been sayin', "Yes maam" at home
Savin' up my cuss words and keepin' 'em under my tongue

I need a little time off for bad behavior
The devil in me done been asleep too long
I need a little time off for bad behavior
It looks like I been too good for too long

I had this number on my mind a while I been a fightin' off the urge to call
A pretty little strawberry blonde with a Southern drawl
Some good old boys called from Alabama
Said the fishin' been a missin' me
And I need to renew my friendship with Jim Beam

I need a little time off for bad behavior
The devil in me done been asleep too long
I need a little time off for bad behavior
It looks like I been too good for too long

Need a little time off for bad behavior
The devil in me done been asleep too long
I need a little time off for bad behavior
It looks like I been too good for too long

I need a little time off for bad behavior
The devil in me done been asleep too long
I better have a little time off for bad behavior
It looks like I been too good for too long
