People stay just a little bit longer
We want to play -- just a little bit longer
Now the promoter don't mind
And the union don't mind
If we take a little time
And we leave it all behind and sing
One more song--

    This version has the words - promoter and union.

    It is a pretty good version, but i prefer the original tune by maurice williams & the zodiacs, where they state - mother and father.

    Won't you kiss your sweet lips to mine

    You know the rest.
    Tell me you love me all of the time.
