EDDY ARNOLD lyrics - Carolyn

EDDY ARNOLD
"Carolyn"

Carolyn let me tell you
What I've heard about a man today
He didn't come home from work
And he went away
Till he came to a city bright
In the night time like day.

There they say he met up with some women
Dressed in yellow and scarlet
Oh, their warm lips like a honeycomb
Dripped with honey
And there's something about the smell of strange perfume
Made him feel warm and not alone.

Yes, Carolyn a man will do that sometimes on his own
Sometimes when he's lonely
And I believe a man might do that sometimes out of spite
But Carolyn a man will do that always
When he's treated bad at home.

Yes, Carolyn a man will do that sometimes on his own
Sometimes when he's lonely
And I believe a man might do that sometimes out of spite
But Carolyn a man will do that always
When he's treated bad at home...
