Gimme red lipstick and a bright purple rouge
A shingle bob haircut and a shot of good boo'
Hurry down, sweet daddy, come blowin' your horn
'Cause if you come too late, sweet mama will be gone

Stop at the fashion shop, get the one that looks best
Your own sweet mama wants a brand new dress
Hurry down, sweet daddy, come blowin' your horn
'Cause if you come too late, sweet mama will be gone

Red rooster said, "Cockle-doodle-do-do"
The Richland woman said, "Any dude will do"
Hurry down, sweet daddy, come blowin' your horn
'Cause if you come too late, sweet mama will be gone

With a rosy red garter, pink hose on her feet
With turkey red bloomer, with a rumble seat
Hurry down, sweet daddy, come blowin' your horn
'Cause if you come too late, sweet mama will be gone

Dress skirt cut high, the knee cut low
Don't think I'm a sport, you keep on watchin' me go
Hurry down, sweet daddy, come blowin' your horn
'Cause if you come too late, sweet mama will be gone

Every Sunday mornin', church - watch me go
My wings have sprouted out, the preacher told me so
Hurry down, sweet daddy, come blowin' your horn
'Cause if you come too late, sweet mama will be gone

Come on all young men, 'cause everything is sittin' right
My husband's gone away till next Saturday night
Hurry down, sweet daddy, come blowin' your horn
'Cause if you come too late, sweet mama will be gone
