Lovinest Man

This song is by Delbert McClinton and appears on the album Second Wind (1978).

Well, mama, you can stop lookin'
Stop all your hookin' and crookin'
You just found yourself the lovinest man
I'm gonna tell you lots of secrets
I'm gonna do some light bitin' and squeezin'
You're gonna find your feelin's getting all out of hand

She said, "Just a minute baby, can't you see I'm late?"
I said 'scuse my move, honey, I thought you was gettin' down"
Just as I was leavin', she took 'hold of my sleeve and
Said, "On second thought, why don't you stick around."

I'm gonna take you up so high it's gonna make you wonder
Just how you ever let yourself get so far down under
Believe me, mama, I know about how that waitin' can be
Tomorrow you know you're gonna wish you'd paid some attention to me
Don't act so surprised, I've already seen that look in your eyes
Sit down, mama, spend a little time with me

She said, "Just a minute baby, can't you see I'm late?"
I said, " 'Scuse my move honey, I thought you was gettin' down."
Just as I was leavin' she took 'hold of my sleeve and
Said, "On second thought why don't you stick around."

I'm gonna take you up so high it's gonna make you wonder
Just how you ever let yourself get so far down under
Believe me, mama, I know about how feelin' lonesome can be
Tomorrow you know you're gonna wish you'd paid some attention to me
Don't act so surprised, I've already seen that look in your eyes
Sit down, mama, spend a little time with me

Yeah, sit down baby, sip a little wine with me
Pull up a chair, baby, let down your hair, baby
Sure lookin' fine, mama, let me pour you some wine
