Lyrics

I love my baby
like a bull dog loves his bone
Last night she got crazy,
called me up on the phone
Said, "Come on over, daddy
'Cause I hates drinkin' alone"
Said, "I had me a little
and I had to have a little more
Try to get up,
could not get out the door
And there's a big ole snake
That's crawlin'
right across the floor"

Hold that snake '
til I make it
Hold on 'til your daddy
gets there
Just grab his head
and shake it
Tell him be ain't goin' nowhere
Take it easy
but take it
But don't let go of that snake
'Til I make it

My baby's not afraid
to take a chance
Drinkin' whiskey
starts her thinkin' about romance
That's when she wants
what I keep in my pants
I know she's
got a few tricks up her sleeve
When she gets hot
it's not hard to believe
So I told my baby
Just what Adam said to Eve

Hold that snake '
til I make it
Hold on 'til your daddy
gets there
Just grab his head
and shake it
Tell him be ain't goin' nowhere
Take it easy
but take it
But don't let go of that snake
'Til I make it
