Crawlin' Lyrics

Crawlin' - The Clovers

Well I stopped to have a little drink


With a lady down the street


Then would took the time to think


That if I drink a Sneaky Pete


I'd be Crawlin instead of ballin


I mix a bowl of wine with rye


Drink until time for me to go


Well she didn’t bat an eye


When she saw me on the floor


Just a Crawlin a really brawlin


I poured the Beer in the gin

I drank the Gin with the Wine

It left me really chargin like a jet T99


I was feelin mighty fine


High as any Georgia pine


Rock and standing on my legs


The floor came up and bumped my head


Man I was Crawlin a really Crawlin


She was prancing all around


And I was on my hands and knees


Trying to get up off the ground


When she said with so much ease


Man your ballin a really ballin


Just then my husband came in

And through me out in the street

I don't know what became of her

But I was really beat


Then I tried to drag home


Sore and full of misery


All the Sneaky Pete was gone


And the folk could plainly see


I was Crawlin instead of ballin

I was Crawlin instead of ballin


Yes I was Crawlin instead of ballin


Oh I was Crawlin instead of ballin


But let me tell you one thing


I ain’t going there no more
