[Key: E]
Now if (E)you go out and start a playing around
Your baby`s gonna tear your playhouse down
You better (A)keep it on your mind (all the time)
You better keep it on your (E)mind (all the time)
You`ll be (B7)moanin` and a groanin`, Lord you better keep it on your (E)mind

Now wrong is wrong and right is right
If you make a snake mad he`s sure gonna bite
You better keep it on your mind (all the time)
You better keep it on your mind (all the time)
I`ve had it proven to me, Lord you better keep it on your mind

Every fuss with a woman has got the same ole end
I don`t believe the good Lord meant for a man to win
You better keep it on your mind (all the time)
You better keep it on your mind (all the time)
You`ll be singing blue and lonesome, Lord you better keep it on your mind

If you make your baby mad and she says goodbye
There ain`t a thing you can do but sit at home and cry
You better keep it on your mind (all the time)
You better keep it on your mind (all the time)
You better call her sweet mama, Lord you better keep it on your mind

If the judge says pay her forty dollars a week
You`ll dig up the money or you`ll work the streets
You better keep it on your mind (all the time)
You better keep it on your mind (all the time)
When you`re wearing striped britches, son it`s gonna stay on your mind

So kiss her every mornin` and love her every night
Boy you can`t win no matter if you`re right
You better keep it on your mind (all the time)
You better keep it on your mind (all the time)
You better heed this warning, Lord you better keep it on your mind
