Yeah she's sittin' at the table lookin' down at her drink
She's always on time - I'm always runnin' late
Yeah I was on my way...
But I got sidetracked
Yeah Gary called me up
Said Rickey's in a jam
Come on over brother - She'll understand
Meet me at the truck
We got some plannin' to do
I've been bad
I've been good
Don't always do the things that I should
When I go - I go all night
But when I do it wrong
I do it up right
I looked at my watch - it was a quarter to three
I knew she'd be up there waitin' on me
I-I-I-I got some explainin' to do
I've been bad
I've been good
Don't always do the things that I should
When I go - I go all night

But when I do it wrong
I do it up right
So I headed straight home
I ain't gonna lie
Ain't got no excuses
No alibi's
I said I was sorry
She said I've heard it before
Some come on over here boy
I've been bad
I've been good
Don't always do the things that I should
When I go - I go all night
But when I do it wrong...
I've been bad
I've been good
Don't always do the things that I should
When I go - I go all night
But when I do it wrong
I do it up right
Baby I do it up right!
Oh I'm gonna do it up right!
Oh, I do it up right!
