keep it on your mind lyrics – mountain goats

[spoken:] it’s a quarter till 2 on the 23rd of february
and this is a hank williams song.

now if you stay out,
and start playing around,
your baby’s gonna burn your playhouse down,
you better keep it on your mind.
you better keep it on your mind.
you’ll be a-moanin’ and a-groanin’!
lord, you better keep it on your mind.

now wrong is wrong,
and right is right.
if you make a pig mad,
he’s sure gonna bite.
you better keep it on your mind.
you better keep it on your mind.
i’ve had it proven to me.
lord, you better keep it on your mind.

every fuss got the same old end,
i don’t believe the good lord
meant for a man to win.
you better keep it on your mind.
you better keep it on your mind.
you’ll be a-groanin’ and a-hoppin’!
lord, you better keep it on your mind.

now if she gets mad,
and tells you goodbye.
there’s not a thing that you can do,
but sit at home and cry.
you better keep it on your mind.
you better keep it on your mind.
you better call her sweet mamma!
lord, you better keep it on your mind.
