You Better Not Do That

You Better Not Do That

Tommy Collins


I'm just a plain ol' country kid and I like to do what's right
But just like any other boy I like to hold 'em tight
Sometimes I got resistence, but no matter how I try
When a cute little gal just looks at me with a gleam in her eye
And I say "You better not do that", and she say "Why?"
And I say "Because you just better not do that"

When I was in the country school I always had a girl
They'd laugh and giggle awful cute and put me in a whirl
And everyday at recess time they followed me outside
I'd scratch my head and wonder are they ever satified
I'd say "Honey, you better not do that" and she'd say "Why?"
And I'd say "Because you just better not do that"

(Instrumental Break)

When I was a little older, I went to the country dance
I went to have a little fun, I wasn't thinkin' about romance
But the dim lights just lured 'em on and they'd snuggle up to me
I knew I couldn't last too long, 'cos I'm human you see
And I'd say "Baby, you better not do that", and she'd say "Why?"
And I'd say "Because you just better not do that"

Now that's the way my life has been, ain't it a cryin' shame
How much longer can I last if I keep playin' a game
Sometimes I don't know who I am, don't they know what they're doin'
I'm afraid in years to come that girls will be my ruin
And I'll say "Now honey, you better not do that", and she'll
say "Why?"
And I'll say "You just better not do that", and she'll say "Why-y-y?"
And I'll say "Oh...well...oh...aah...oh...well it's alright if you do that"
