Sittin' thinkin' sinkin' drinkin' Wond'ring what I'd do when I'm thru tonight Smoking, moping, maybe just hopin' Some little girl will pass on by Don't wanna be alone but I love my girl at home I remember what she said She said "My, my, my don't tell lies. Keep fidelity in your head My, my, my, don't tell lies. When you're done you should go to bed Don't say Hi, like a spider to a fly Jump right ahead and you're dead"
Sit up, fed up, low down, go 'round Down at the bar at the place I'm at Sitting, drinking, superfic'ly thinking About the rinsed out blonde on my left Then I said "Hi" like a spider to a fly Remembering what my little girl said
She was common, flirty, she looked about thirty I would have run away but I was on my own She told me later, she's a machine operator She said she liked the way I held the microphone I said "My, my" like the spider to a fly "Jump right ahead in my web"
