The Right String (But the Wrong Yo-Yo)
 
 

You got the right string baby, but the wrong yo-yo
Somebody knocking on your door
I passed this morning by the hardware store
Brand new string for my yo-yo

I went on down to the doctor, to get the string put on
He turned around put the string on wrong
No need a-knocking on nobody's door
You got the right string baby, but the wrong yo-yo

My mama told me, papa did too
Some of these women gonna be the death of you
You better find out which of you crave
Son, some of these women gonna take you to your grave

You see me coming I want you to put your man on toes
I ain't no stranger, I've been here before
No need knocking on nobody's door
The right string baby, but the wrong yo-yo

You got the right string baby, but the wrong yo-yo
Somebody knocking on your door
I passed this morning by the hardware store
Brand new string for my yo-yo

I went on down to the doctor, to get the string put on
He turned around put the string on wrong
No need a-knocking on nobody's door
You got the right string baby, but the wrong yo-yo

---

Right string baby, but the wrong yo-yo
You tryin' a-do me like you did before
No need hangin' baby 'round my door
You got the right string baby, but the wrong yo-yo

Right string baby, but the wrong yo-yo
There's no need to hang-a, hang around my door
I used to love you, but I-I don't no more
You got the right string baby, but the wrong yo-yo

Well Saturday night, I'm stayin' at home
You got your mind out, oh you wanna roam
You settle down and leave the others alone
You gonna love me, little baby or you'll never be my own

You got the right string baby, but the wrong yo-yo
You never do the things you do before
You say you love me, but you can't no more
You got the right string baby, but the wrong yo-yo

Lyrics by Rufus 'Speckled Red' Perryman; Willie 'Piano Red' Perryman.
Recorded by Piano Red; Carl Perkins.
