Well, I'm a honky tonk man and I can't seem to stop
I love to give the girls a whirl to the music of an old jukebox
But when my money's all gone I'm on the telephone
A hollerin' hey hey mama can your daddy come home.

I'm living fast and dangerously
But I've got plenty of company
When the moon comes up and the sun goes down
That's when I wanna see the lights of town.

'Cause I'm a honky tonk man and I can't seem to stop
I love to give the girls a whirl to the music of an old jukebox
But when my money's all gone I'm on the telephone
A hollerin' hey hey mama can your daddy come home.

--- Instrumental ---

It takes a purty little gal and a jug of wine
That's what it takes to make a honky tonk mind
With the jukebox whinin' a honky tonk sound
That's when I want to lay my money down.

'Cause I'm a honky tonk man and I can't seem to stop
I love to give the girls a whirl to the music of an old jukebox
But when my money's all gone I'm on the telephone
A hollerin' hey hey mama can your daddy come home.

But when my money's all gone I'm on the telephone
A hollerin' hey hey mama can your daddy come home...
