Well, I'm standing here, freezing, outside your golden garden
Uh got my ladder, leaned up against your wall
Tonight's the night we planned to run away together
Come on Dolly Mae, there's no time to stall
But now you're telling me...

I think I better wait till tomorrow
I think I better wait till tomorrow
I think I better wait till tomorrow
Got to make sure it's right, so until tomorrow, goodnight.

Oh, Dolly Mae, how can you hang me up this way?
Oh, on the phone you said you wanted to run off with me today
Now I'm standing here like some turned down serenading fool
Hearing strange words stutter from the mixed up mind of you
And you keep tellin' me that ah...

I think we better wait till tomorrow
I think we better wait till tomorrow
Don't have to wait, Don't have to wait
I think we better wait till tomorrow
Got to make sure it's right, until tomorrow, goodnight, oh.

Ow! Dolly Mae, girl, you know you must be insane
So unsure of yourself leaning from your unsure window pane
Do I see a silhouette of somebody pointing something from a tree?
Click bang, what a hang, your daddy just shot for me
And I hear you say, as I fade away...

We don't have to wait till tomorrow
We don't have to wait till tomorrow
We don't have to wait till tomorrow

Won't be around, Won't be around, Won't be around...

    Simple as. A man and a woman have planned to elope but the woman is having second thoughts at the last minute and wants to 'wait until tomorrow'. The woman's father also doesn't approve of the pairing and tries to shoot the man who subsequently makes a quick exit! Great song, great cover.
