Names

I seen her at the front door
I couldn't stand it anymore
The band was playing so loud
You couldn't talk you had to shout
So when I asked her for a dance
She thought I said a romance

Hey, baby
Hey, baby
Hey, baby
Hey, baby
Hey baby, come on darlin' don't ya call me names

Well I could see without a doubt
I better sit this one out
Walkin' off the dance floor
Slipped on a loose board
I bumped a girl and had to hug
She thought I tried to jitterbug

Hey baby [repeat]

Come on darlin'

I woke up on the front lawn
I found myself home at dawn
I wasn't feelin' any pain
When I dropped my key chain
Fell against the window screen
I heard my old lady scream

Hey baby [repeat]
