Brenda Lee – Wrong Ideas lyrics

(Shel Silverstein)

Well alright you can sit down but just for a minute
I'm not as lonely as I might appear
But you've got a friendly smile so we can sit and talk awhile
But don't go getting' any wrong ideas
A drink? Well thank you no, I never touch it
Well well maybe just once little glass of beer
And a dance just might be fun but I can only stay for one
So don't go getting' any wrong ideas
Don't go thinking cause I'm drinking one last drink with you
That I'm the kind to lose my mind the way some women do
Well here we are yes that's my house there on the corner
No you can't come up let's say good night right here
Well maybe just a minute or so but then you'll really have to go
So don't go getting' any wrong ideas
No darling don't go getting' any wrong ideas
