Stay A Little Longer    (1945)

Can't go home if you're goin' by the mill
Cause the bridge's washed out at the bottom of the hill
Big Creek's up and Little Creek's level
Plow my corn with a double shovel
Stay all night stay a little longer
Dance all night dance a little longer
Pull off your coat throw it in the corner
Don't see why you can't stay a little longer

Sittin' in the window singin' to my love
Slop bucket fell from the window up above
Mule and the grasshopper eatin' ice cream
Mule got sick so they laid him on the green
Stay all night, stay a little longer
Dance all night, dance a little longer
Pull off your coat, throw it in the corner
Don't see why ya don't stay a little longer

Well you ought to see my blue eyed Sally
She lives away down on Shinbone Alley
The number on the gate the number on the door
The next house over is the grocery store
Stay all night, stay a little longer
Dance all night, dance a little longer
Pull off your coat, throw it in the corner
Don't see why ya don't stay a little longer

Grab your gal and pat her on the head
If she don't like biscuits feed her corn bread
If the girls don't like dancing all alone
They jump on a man like a dog on a bone
Stay all night, stay a little longer
Dance all night, dance a little longer
Pull off your coat, throw it in the corner
Don't see why ya don't stay a little longer

Stay all night, stay a little longer
Dance all night, dance a little longer
Pull off your coat, throw it in the corner
Don't see why ya don't stay a little longer
