LyricsEdit

(It's a quarter til 2 on the 23rd of February and this is a Hank Williams song)

Now if you stay out
And start playing around
Your baby's gonna burn your playhouse down
You better keep it on your mind
You better keep it on your mind
You'll be a-moanin' and a-groanin'
Lord, you better keep it on your mind

Now wrong is wrong
And right is right
If you make a pig mad
He's sure gonna bite
You better keep it on your mind
You better keep it on your mind
I've had it proven to me
Lord, you better keep it on your mind

Every fuss got the same old end
I don't believe the good lord
Meant for a man to win
You better keep it on your mind
You better keep it on your mind
You'll be a-groanin' and a-hoppin'
Lord, you better keep it on your mind

Now if she gets mad
And tells you goodbye
There's not a thing that you can do
But sit at home and cry
You better keep it on your mind
You better keep it on your mind
You better call her sweet mamma
Lord, you better keep it on your mind
