Original video
I slipped out of the house about sundown
While mama was a-washing her hair
And you can bet your bottom dollar
She'll come a-lookin' for me
When she finds that I'm not there
And if she catches her sweet thing runnin' around
I know there'll be the devil to pay
She'll come blowin' like a cyclone through that door
And I can hear exactly what she'll say

"Well, has anybody here seen Sweet Thing?
I got a notion he'll be headed this way
'Cause when my Sweet Thing's out tomcattin' around
He finds a sandbox like this to play
I wanna tell all you barroom roses
If my Sweet Thing does happen by
You'd better take my advice
And if you blink more than twice
You'd better have something in your eye"

I give my baby all my money on payday
Except a little she don't know that I got
'Cause there's a cute little waitress
Down at the corner café
And she seems to like me quite a lot
Well, we were sittin' in this back booth a-havin' a talk
And she's believin' every word that I said
When the door blew open and mama walked in
Yellin' loud enough to wake the dead

"Well, has anybody here seen my Sweet Thing?
I got a notion he'll be headed this way
'Cause when my Sweet Thing's out tomcattin' around
He finds a sandbox like this to play
I want to tell all you café cuties
If my Sweet Thing should have a bite
You'd better take mom's advice
And if you blink more than twice
You'd better have something in your eye
Yes, you take ol' mum's advice
If you blink more than twice
You'd better have something in your eye"
