YOU BETTER NOT DO THAT (Tommy Collins) Tommy Collins - 1954 Dion & The Belmonts - 1959 George Hamilton IV - 1966 Also recorded by: Kitty Wells; Frank Ifield; Little Jimmy Dickens. I'm just a plain ol' country kid and I like to do what's right But just like any other boy I like to hold 'em tight Sometimes I got resistence, but no matter how I try When a cute little gal just looks at me with a gleam in her eye And I say "You better not do that", and she say "Why?" And I say "Because you just better not do that" When I was in the country school I always had a girl They'd laugh and giggle awful cute and put me in a whirl And everyday at recess time they followed me outside I'd scratch my head and wonder are they ever satified I'd say "Honey, you better not do that" and she'd say "Why?" And I'd say "Because you just better not do that" (Instrumental Break) When I was a little older, I went to the country dance I went to have a little fun, I wasn't thinkin' about romance But the dim lights just lured 'em on and they'd snuggle up to me I knew I couldn't last too long, 'cos I'm human you see And I'd say "Baby, you better not do that", and she'd say "Why?" And I'd say "Because you just better not do that" Now that's the way my life has been, ain't it a cryin' shame How much longer can I last if I keep playin' a game Sometimes I don't know who I am, don't they know what they're doin' I'm afraid in years to come that girls will be my ruin And I'll say "Now honey, you better not do that", and she'll say "Why?" And I'll say "You just better not do that", and she'll say "Why-y-y?" And I'll say "Oh...well...oh...aah...oh...well it's alright if you do that" (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2006)
