WHY DO I PUT UP WITH YOU
WITH BETTIE HUSKY
(Hank Mills - David Wilkins)
« © '66 Johnny Bienstock Music, BMI »
I don't know why I put up with you I put up with you and the little things you do
I don't know why I put up with you I put up with you the way I do
You bring the kitchen to the bedroom while you're readin'
And I wake up with cheese and crackers in my hair
And when I go to take a shower I start screamin'
Cause I get lost in your nylon jungle there
Oh I don't know why I put up with you I put up with you the way I do
You throw your clothes around the room in no directions
And then you wonder why my work is never done
The little workshop in the basement never seen you
I tell myself if the TV program's coming on
I don't know why I put up with you I put up with you the way I do
I don't know why I put up with you I put up with you the way I do
At two o'clock I call and say we're goin' dancin'
To give you time to make your face and fix your hair
And eight o'clock we're runnin' in and out of dress shops
Because you say you haven't got a thing to wear
I don't know why I put up with you I put up with you the way I do
On Friday night you promised me that we'll go shopping
Because on Saturdays the sale is going off
But in the morning you say honey I'm so sorry
I have forgot that today I'm playin' golf
I don't know why I put up with you I put up with you and the little things you do
I don't know why I put up with you I put up with you the way I do
