Dolly Parton – I'm Gonna Sleep With One Eye Open lyrics

I just found out today
The little game you play
While I been sleepin' all my life away
You been steppin' so they say
Between midnight and day
So I'm gonna sleep with one eye open from now on

From now on, all night long
You won't have a chance
To treat your momma wrong
You been steppin' so they say
Between midnight and day
So I'm gonna sleep with one eye open from now on

There's a honky-tonk down the road
Just about a mile or so
And I understand that's where you spend your time
Baby, I got news for you
Your little game is through
Yeah, from now on baby
You better tow the line

From now on, all night long
You won't have a chance
To treat your momma wrong
You been steppin' so they say
Between midnight and day
So I'm gonna sleep with one eye open from now on

You thought you were bein' smart
Breaking my little heart
And leavin' me to spend my time alone
Well you'll find out today
It just don't work that way
You've started a little game that two can play

From now on, all night long
You won't have a chance
To treat your momma wrong
You been steppin' so they say
Between midnight and day
But you better sleep with one eye open from now on
Yeah an' I'm gonna sleep with eye open from now on
