My poor broke mama told me
When I was twelve years old
You eat and talk much too fast
There's one thing you should know
Take your time my sweet baby
Take your time my blue eyed son
Well you might never have his money
But you won't miss no rich man's fun
I can never give you money honey
I can never buy you clothes
But the way them women been lookin' at you
Someday you should have both
If you take your time my sweet baby
Take your time and love them slow
And if you play your cards right
You won't never wait no more
Well the ladies like their diamonds
They like their brand new clothes
But I was blessed with plenty of the thing they love the most
I take my time with the ladies
I take my time and I love 'em slow
And since I turned thirteen
Lord, I ain't never wait no more
I can never give you money honey
I can never buy you clothes
But the way them schoolgirls look at you
Someday you gunna have both
If you take your time my sweet baby
Take your time my blue eyed son
Well you might never have his money
But you won't miss no rich man's fun
