lyrics

“Uh-Huh”

I sewed a six-toed sock and a half-knit sweater,
But I’ve got something that will fit you better.
Uh-huh.
Dunked three dozen doughnuts in a barrel of beer,
But I’ve got something that will keep you here.
Uh-huh.

Chorus:
Made to order, family size.
Got your nose and both your eyes.
Uh-huh.
Sounds like you when it starts talking.
Makes me a-laugh when we go a-walking.
Uh-huh …

I could paint you a picture, but I’m bad with a brush.
Script you a scripture; I’m a saint in a rush.
Uh-huh.
Build you a boxcar, buy your seat on a train
Read your postcards from Paris, your letters from Spain.
Uh-huh.

Chorus

I could write you a sonnet, hang your sheets on the line,
Be in your bonnet, sun in your shine.
Uh-huh.
Slide on your sidewalk, hop in your scotch,
Jitter your bug, double your Dutch.
Uh-huh.

But a present isn’t present ‘til you give it away.
Tomorrow’s on borrow. How about today?

Chorus
