Percy Sledge – Take Time To Know Her lyrics

I found a woman
I felt I truly loved
She was everything
I'd ever been dreaming of

But she was bad, I didn't know it
Her pretty smile, never did show it
All I knew is what I could see
And I knew I wanted her for me

I took her home to Mama
Mama wanted to see my future bride
Well, she looked at us both
And then she called me to her side

She said, "Son, take time to know her
It's not an overnight fling
Take time to know her
Please, don't rush into this thing”

But, I didn't listen to Mama
I went straight to the church
I just couldn't wait to have a little girl of mine
When I got off from work

The preacher was there
So was my future bride
He looked at us both
And then he called me to his side

He said, “Son, take time to know her
It’s not an overnight fling
You better take time to know her
Please, please don't rush into this thing”

But, it looked like everything was gonna turn out all right
And then I came home, a little early, one night
And there she was, kissin’ on another man
Now, I know what Mama meant when she took me by the hand

And said, “Son, take time to know her”
(Take time, please, to get to know son)
“It’s not an overnight fling”
(Take time, please, to get to know son)
“Take time to know her”
(Take time, please, to get to know son)
“Please don't rush into this thing”

“Take time to know her”
(Take time, please, to get to know son)
“It’s not an overnight fling”
