​Slowpoke

This song is by Eddy Arnold and appears on the album A Dozen Hits (1956).

(Pee Wee King - Redd Stewart - Chilton Price)

You keep me waitin'
Till it's gettin' aggravatin'
You're a slowpoke
I wait and worry
But you never seem to hurry
You're a slowpoke.

Time means nothing to you
I wait and then late again
Eight o'clock, nine o'clock
Quarter to ten.

Why should I linger
Everytime you snap your finger
Little slowpoke
Why can't you hasten
When you see the time's a wastin'
You're a slowpoke.

Dear, why should I keep trying to change you
It's not the thing to do
I guess I'll have to learn to be
A slowpoke too.

Why should I linger
Everytime you snap your finger
Little slowpoke
Why can't you hasten
When you see the time's a wastin'
You're a slowpoke.

Dear, why should I keep trying to change you
It's not the thing to do
I guess I'll have to learn to be
A slowpoke too...
