If you leave her now You ain't never gonna see her again She's gonna need a shoulder to cry on She's gonna need a friend She's gonna need a pillow case Something to put those tears on And I've got some purple satin laces One second later than the second you're gone
She's gonna miss you at first But then she's gonna buy me things That's when I'm gonna lay her Across my piano stool and sing to her
[Chorus] "Honey, I tried to tell him That you were the marrying kind A faithful one-man woman Best he would ever find I guess he wasn't trying to hear that So there ain't nothing left to say I tried to tell him that if you run to me I won't run away."
If you leave her now You'll never get another glimpse I'm gonna lace her With enough ice to recap the pole There might be another solar eclipse She's gonna find out What I like in my eggs, My bathwater And how a brother likes to be touched I am gonna put her on The same diet Missy went on You know she eats to much tonight
She's gonna miss you at first Then she'll get used to me All of the tricks I would try To make her take this ring And make love to me
