Lyrics

Play a slow one boys

Written By: Yancy Yates

Ain't no flashy guy, a place like this makes me feel uptight
Shiny cowboy boots, business suits, and power ties
On the dancefloor's the strangest scene
They're all lined up doing the same damn thing

Play a slow one boys, so I can ask that girl to dance with me
Play somethin' old, when it still had
some soul, you know that one about a rose
Don't know them fancy dance moves
Take a break from them faster tunes
And play a slow one boys
Play a slow one boys

Their's machines that'll do, more than I used to do, it don't seem right
But its a fast lane world, you get run off the road, If you're behind the times
Hey that sounded like the one before
Just one favor I won't ask anymore

Play a slow one boys, so I can ask that girl to dance with me
Play somethin' old, when it still had
some soul, you know that one about a rose
Don't know them fancy dance moves
Take a break from them faster tunes
And play a slow one boys
Play a slow one boys

Time don't behave

Written By: Yancy Yates

verse 1
ridin shotgun in my mama's shoppin cart, grabbin at the candy in the local k-mart, mama said "boy, you better behave gonna call your daddy on his lunchbreak"

then I became a teenage kid outta school, didn't know what the hell I was
gonna do, went off to college like some of my friends, learned how to get drunk thought it never end

chorus
winter, spring, fall, and summer's in
between, but I lost somethen I can't retrieve
cuz time don't behave, no time don't take its time, just keeps on playin, like a spoiled little child
and it don't listen to me, don't ever let up, keeps on runnin away
no, time don't behave

verse 2
now I'm thick in the middle, thin on top, hard to believe I was a high school jock, got in a little trouble made my mama cry, she still worries
bout me from time to time

worked a lotta jobs moved from town to town, but I keep goin over the same ole ground, look more like my dad each passin day, and I remember that girl I let get away
