Slow Poke

Slow Poke

Tennessee Ernie Ford

You keep me waitin' till it's gettin' aggravatin',
You're a slow poke,
I wait n' worry but you never seem to hurry,
You're a slow poke,

Time means nothin' to you, I wait and then,
Late again,
Eight o'clock, nine o'clock,
Quarter to ten,

Why should I linger ev'ry time you snap your finger,
Little slow poke,
Why can't you hasten when you see the time's a-wastin',
You're a slow poke, dear,

Why should I keep tryin' to change you,
It's not the thing to do,
I guess i'll have to learn
To be a slow poke too!

You keep me waitin' till it's gettin' aggravatin',
You're a slow poke,
I wait n' worry but you never seem to hurry,
You're a slow poke,

Slow poke.
