"Okay, a Carl Perkins number now called 'Honey Don't'!"

ONE, TWO, THREE!

WELL, HOW COME YOU SAY YOU WILL WHEN YOU WON'T?
SAY YOU DO, BABY, WHEN YOU DON'T?
EV'RYTHING ABOUT YOU IS SO DOGGONE SWEET;
YOU GOT THAT SAND ALL OVER YOUR FEET.
BUT AH-HAH, HONEY, DON'T,
WELL, HONEY, DON'T, (bop, bop, bop, bop)
HONEY, DON'T, (bop, bop, bop, bop)
HONEY, DON'T, (bop, bop, bop, bop)
HONEY, DON'T, (bop, bop, bop, bop)
I SAY YOU WILL WHEN YOU WON'T,
AH-HAH, HONEY, DON'T.

WELL, I LOVE YOU, BABY, AND YOU OUGHT TO KNOW,
I LIKE THE WAY THAT YOU WEAR YOUR CLOTHES.
EV'RYTHING ABOUT YOU IS SO DOGGONE SWEET,
YOU STILL GOT SAND ALL OVER YOUR FEET.
BUT AH-HAH, HONEY, DON'T,
WELL, HONEY, DON'T, (bop, bop, bop, bop)
HONEY, DON'T, (bop, bop, bop, bop)
HONEY, DON'T, (bop, bop, bop, bop)
HONEY, DON'T, (bop, bop, bop, bop)
I SAY YOU WILL WHEN YOU WON'T,
AH-HAH, HONEY, DON'T.

"Let me hear it!"

WELL, I LOVE YOU, BABY, ON A SATURDAY NIGHT,
SUNDAY MORNING YOU DON'T LOOK RIGHT.
YOU'VE BEEN OUT PAINTIN' THE TOWN,
AH-HAH, BABY, BEEN SLEEPIN' AROUND,
BUT AH-HAH, HONEY, DON'T, (bop, bop, bop, bop)
I SAID, HONEY, DON'T, (bop, bop, bop, bop)
HONEY, DON'T, (bop, bop, bop, bop)
HONEY, DON'T, (bop, bop, bop, bop)
HONEY, DON'T, (bop, bop, bop, bop)
I SAY YOU WILL WHEN YOU WON'T,
AH-HAH, HONEY, DON'T.

"Let me hear the guitar!"

WELL, HONEY, DON'T, (bop, bop, bop, bop)
HONEY, DON'T, (bop, bop, bop, bop)
HONEY, DON'T, (bop, bop, bop, bop)
HONEY, DON'T, (bop, bop, bop, bop)
I SAY YOU WILL WHEN YOU WON'T,
AH-HAH, HONEY, DON'T.


"What do you think of it so far?"
"Okay, just like we promised, songs you know and love."
