The Lyrics

I've stayed around and paid around
This old place too long
My wife henpecks strong
Her attitude's all wrong,
I've stayed around and paid around
This old house too long
My old woman's just Gotta' Babble On

Met a barmaid, Connie
Sweet Connie makes me roam
Connie makes me roam
Oh, I wrote her a poem
Met this barmaid, Connie
She kisses my bald dome
My old woman keeps naggin' all day long

I've hung around, ate dung around
This old shack too much
Wife don't want my touch
No tenderness to clutch
I've hung around, ate dung around
Hearin' her old song,
That old woman's just Gotta Babble On

Town sheriff and police, they're out after me
Comin' after me, yes, warrant's out for me
Town sheriff and police huntin' after me
Fixed my woman, so she can't Babble On

I'd stayed around and paid around
That old shack with her
She ruffled my fur
Somethin' had to occur
I'd stayed around and paid around
What I did's just a blur
Her own Damn fault, she had to Babble On

Headin' to see my Connie
Drivin' to her pad
I need to see her bad
She's one true love I've had
Gonna take my Connie
Away in my Cad..
Drive to Tulsa,
And hide out with her Dad

I hear a sound and turn around
Sirens shrill and long
Red lights flashin' strong
They're chasin' me along
(Guess) I stayed around and played around
This old world too long..
Car rolls over, road had loose gravel on..

(I'm) off to Hades, not up to Babylon

Sir, this is crazy, Zany, but a great tale of love & adventure! . . . . I do hope 'Miss Constance' was worth the trip . . .
