CONFEDERATE RAILROAD


Time Off For Bad Behavior Lyrics

I'm up and gone everyday at dawn
Just a workin' like a regular dog
To keep the woman and the water
And the lights and the phone turned on

I've been sayin', "Yes sir" all day at work
I've been sayin', "Yes ma'am" at home
Savin' up my cuss words
And keepin' 'em under my tongue

I need a little time off for bad behavior
The devil in me done been asleep too long
I need a little time off for bad behavior
It looks like I've been too good for too long

Well I went to a company party, I didn't even drink enough to get high
I met a preppy little wimp I shoulda whipped but I let him slide
Ol' Hambone McGraw got the law paid off
Dealing blackjack Saturday nights
And I could triple my take-home pay if it weren't for my wife

Need a little time off for bad behavior
The devil in me done been asleep too long
I need a little time off for bad behavior
It looks like I've been too good for too long

I got a number on my mind
That I've been a fightin' off the urge to call
A hot, hell-raisin' blonde bomb
With a Southern drawl

Some good-old boys called collect from Mississippi
Said the fishin' been a missin' me
And I could sure get it up for a smoke
And a Delta Queen

I need a little time off for bad behavior
The devil in me done been asleep too long
I need a little time off for bad behavior
It looks like I've been too good for too long
I said, "It looks like I've been too damn good too long"

I need a little time off for bad behavior
The devil in me done been asleep too long
I need a little time off for bad behavior
It looks like I've been too good for too long
