WHY DO I PUT UP WITH YOU (Hank Mills / David Wilkins) Ferlin & Bettie Husky - 1965 BOTH: I don't know why I put up with you I put up with you and the little things you do I don't know why I put up with you I put up with you the way I do FERLIN: You bring the kitchen to the bedroom while you're readin' And I wake up with cheese and crackers in my hair And when I go to take a shower, I start screamin' 'Cause I get lost in your nylon jungle there BOTH: Oh, I don't know why I put up with you I put up with you the way I do BETTIE: You throw your clothes around the room in all directions (FH: Gotta have somewhere to put 'em) And then you wonder why my work is never done (FH: You know it's done) The little workshop in the basement never sees you (FH: I gotta go down there) Until my favourite TV program's comin' on (FH: You watch TV all the time) BOTH: I don't know why I put up with you I put up with you the way I do (Instrumental Break) BOTH: I don't know why I put up with you I put up with you the way I do FERLIN: At two o'clock I call and say we're goin' dancin' To give you time to make your face and fix your hair (BH: Somebody's gotta notice me) At eight o'clock we're runnin' in and out of dress shops Because you say you haven't got a thing to wear (BH: I don't!) (FH: Your closets are full) BOTH: I don't know why I put up with you I put up with you the way I do BETTIE: On Friday night you promise me that we'll go shoppin' (FH: Well, I take ya) Because on Saturday the sale is goin' off (FH: That's just a gimmick to get you in there) But in the morning you say, "Honey, I'm so sorry (FH: Well, ev'rybody's sorry sometime) I plum forgot that today I'm playin' golf" (FH: You know how I love golf) BOTH: I don't know why I put up with you I put up with you and the little things you do I don't know why I put up with you I put up with you, but I do (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2010)
