Owsley – Sonny Boy lyrics

Take Sonny, he's a real go-getter
A regular man about town
He's got the world revolving around the music
And keeping his ear to the ground

He falls asleep behind his dark sunglasses
And whispers the words with a smile
D I double G, I love you, baby
I ain't seen your face in awhile

She ain't keeping score
He don't owe her anything
She ain't gonna sit around
Waiting for the phone to ring

Sonny Boy, don't take your toys away
Save them for a rainy day, yeah, yeah, yeah
I O you could break her heart in two
She thought you were the real Mccoy, Sonny Boy

He's got his servant and his own dumb waiter
To answer the phone when you call
I'm sorry, Sonny's underneath the weather
Try him back later next fall

Boss called him out to California
Let Hollywood make you a star
Now he's on the Music Television
And driving a Cadillac car

Funny how fame
And money does what it can
To bring about change in the boy
The clothes don't make the man

Sonny Boy, don't take your toys away
Save them for a rainy day, yeah, yeah, yeah
I O you could break her heart in two
She thought you were the real Mccoy, Sonny Boy

It's a game you just can't win
Though it never will be the same again
Fair-weather friend

I don't think we've heard the last of Sonny
He can't get it off of his mind
He wants to laugh, but he don't think it's funny
A conscience can turn on a dime

When he was a boy
They taught him the Golden Rule
Take him for anything
But don't take him for a fool

Sonny Boy, don't take your toys away
Save them for a rainy day, yeah, yeah, yeah
I O you could break her heart in two
She thought you were the real Mccoy

Sonny Boy, don't take your toys away
Save them for a rainy day, yeah, yeah, yeah
I O you could break her heart in two
She thought you were the real Mccoy, Sonny Boy

Don't save it 'til the morning after
Don't save it 'til the morning after, Sonny Boy
Don't save it 'til the morning after, Boy
Don't save it 'til the morning after
