Luther Allison – Should I Wait? lyrics

Standing at the station, waiting on you
Could you tell me baby, why you overdue?
You see I've been standing, 3 hours or more
I got to go to work honey, you don't even wanna know

Should I wait, should I wait on you?
You better get yourself together
Hey, I don't wanna wait on you

I told you late last night, worries on my worried mind
You took my heart and my money, you wasted my precious time
I gave you my best loving, better than you need
You took my poor heart apart, I even got down on my knees

Should I wait, little girl should I wait on you?
You better get yourself together
Now I done told ya I ain't got time to wait on you
I got no more time, I got to get out of here, go to work

One last question babe, what's on your mind?
You can't make no love, you be drunk all the time
You see I gave up a good job, make pretty good pay
But I gonna get fired, if you make me loose one more day

Should I wait?
Little girl, should I wait?
You better get yourself together
I told ya I ain't got enough time to wait
Now listen to me, you better get yourself together
Hey baby, I told ya I can't wait
I can't wait
I just can't wait no longer baby, you better get yourself together

Ha Ha Ha
Damn' it all, I told you, I won't wait on you
I won't wait on you
