lefty frizzell – run ’em off lyrics

Loading...

now, when the big bad wolf got in grandma’s house
and little red riding hood was scared as a mouse
and, just like her, i’m scared through and through
that some two-legged wolf would run away with you

so, run ’em off
no use to talk all day
run ’em off
they’re trying to get you to play
run ’em off
make ’em let us be
if you don’t run ’em off i’ll swear you’re cheating on me

now there’s an iceman, milkman, and folks out of town
they don’t come to visit, they just hang around
they act just as friendly as can be
but i don’t think they care a thing about me

so run ’em off
don’t talk too long
run ’em off
so we can be alone
run ’em off
and make ’em let us be
if you don’t run ’em off i’ll swear you’re cheating on me

no matter where you are or what you do
folks all a-whistle and howl at you
when they get too close then i want to say, shoo
’cause it looks like they want to take a bite of you

so run ’em off
don’t talk too much
run ’em off
you’re gonna get in dutch
run ’em off
and make ’em let us be
if you don’t run ’em off i’ll swear you’re cheating on me

now once i ended this song but i’ll write some more
’cause there’s a half a dozen wolfs coming up to my door
i can tell by looking, ’cause it’s plain to see
that they’re not here to make eyes at me

run ’em off (run ’em off)
don’t want them hanging around
run ’em off (run ’em off)
you’ll be the talk of the town
run ’em off (run ’em off)
and make ’em let us be
if you don’t run ’em off i’ll swear you’re cheating on me
