Honey Chile (Album Version)

Honey Chile (Album Version)

The Jackson 5

You're shiftless and you're lazy
Just like the hound dog Daisy
I had when Grandma raised me, honey chile
When Granny got to old to scorn me
Dear old Auntie warned me
You sure was no good for me, honey chile

But your kiss is sweeter than the cake
That Grandma used to make
All the sweet li'l things about you
Sure enough taste like cake
You ain't gonna amount to nothin'
But you ain't gonna work for nothin'
Without you I'm good for nothin', honey chile

Honey chile, sure about to drive you wild
I love you so, keep me goin' now, honey chile
Sugar chile, I won't need a country mile
Just to be with you, exactly true now, honey chile

I try to act like a lady
But you've been goin' with Sade
Your reputation's gained me
Hey, you even took out Sally
Who lives across the alley
Oh I've been keepin' a tally, honey chile

You're like the grapes upon the vine
The grapes in Granny's wine
A vine that always was so sweet
But you're not happy not outside now
You ain't nothin' but a playboy
Usin' me for a play toy
You're ruinin' my pride and joy now, honey chile

Honey chile, sure about to drive you wild
I love you so, keep me goin' now, honey chile
Sugar chile, I won't need a country mile
Just to be with you, exactly true now, honey chile

Listen here now
One day I'm gonna get stronger
And I won't need you no longer
This feelin' will be gone now, honey chile
Hey, now I can't take disgracin'
That ain't the way Granny raised me
You're gonna have the gravy, honey chile

Sugar chile, I won't need a country mile
Just to be with you, exactly true now, honey chile
Hey, honey chile, sure about to drive you wild
I love you so, keep me goin' now, honey chile
