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
