    Lyrics

    (Nat Stuckey)

    I slipped out of the house about sundown
    While mama was a washing her hair
    And you can bet your bottom dollar she'll come looking for me
    When she finds that I'm not there.

    And if she catches her sweet thang out runnin' around
    I know there'll be the debit to pay
    She'll come blowing like a cyclone through that door
    And I can hear exactly what she'll say.

    Well, has anybody here seen sweet thang
    I got a notion he'll be headed this way
    Cause when my sweet thang's out tomocattin' around
    He finds a sandbox like this to play.

    I wanna tell all you barroom hosses
    If my sweet thang does have a bite
    You'd better take my advice and if you'll blink more than twice
    You'd better have something in your eyes.

    --- Instrumental ---

    I gave my baby all my money on payday
    Except a little that she don't know that I got
    Cause there's a cute little waitress at the corner cafe
    And she likes those sugar boys quite a lot.

    While we were sittin' in this back booth a havin' a talk
    And she was believin' in every word that I said
    When the door blew open and mama walked in
    Yelling loud enough to wake the dead.

    Well, has anybody here seen sweet thang
    I got a notion he'll be headed this way
    Cause when my sweet thang's out tomocattin' around
    He finds a sandbox like this to play.

    I wanna tell all you barroom hosses
    If my sweet thang does have a bite
    You'd better take my advice and if you'll blink more than twice
    You'd better have something in your eyes...
