HEAVE HO
(Bobby Horton)
THE HORTON BROTHERS (TEXJAM0064, 2000)

Gave you this
And I gave you that
A brandnew coat and a brandnew hat
What did I do
I got to know
Cause all you gave me was the ol' heave ho

Well heave ho
What do ya know
I can't be knocking on your door no more
Just the fat lady sing
Her last note
Cause you gave me the ol' heave ho

Watching the hands on the clock go 'round
makes me wanna walk the floor
With my head hung down
Wasting my time and I feel low
Ever since you gave me the ol' heave ho

Well heave ho
What do ya know
I can't be knocking on your door no more
Just the fat lady sing
Her last note
Cause you gave me the ol' heave ho

Sad so sad
it's making me mad
I give and I give
everything I have
Now for some reason you're rockin' the boat
You put me in the water with your ol' heave ho

Well heave ho
What do ya know
I can't be knocking on your door no more
Just the fat lady sing
Her last note
Cause you gave me the ol' heave ho

Watching the hands on the clock go 'round
makes me wanna walk the floor
With my head hung down
Wasting my time and I feel low
Ever since you gave me the ol' heave ho

Well heave ho
What do ya know
I can't be knocking on your door no more
Just the fat lady sing
Her last note
Cause you gave me the ol' heave ho

You gave me the ol' heave ho
You gave me the ol' heave ho
You gave me the ol' heave ho
