JUST THOUGHT I'D SET YOU STRAIGHT
(Ted Harris)
TED HARRIS (RCA Victor 47-7422, 1958)

Well, now you told it in the country
And then you told it up town
That I came a-crawling to you
But you turned me down
Well, let me tell you something honey
Don't let your head inflate
'Cause I ain't asking you for nothing
Just thought I'd set you straight

Now, I'm a funny kind of fellow
I got a whole lotta pride
Can't have no dame like you
Take me for a ride
So let me warn you just once
Before it gets too late
Don't you press your luck
Just thought I'd set you straight

It's like my grandpa told me
Now that some girls is fine
Oh, but there's some others
Not worth a dime
So, if you're that kind of girl
Then you just don't rate
And you better be for moving along
Just thought I'd set you straight

Yeah, if you're that kind of girl
Then you just don't rate
And you better be for moving along
Just thought I'd set you straight
