MOSE ALLISON lyrics - You Can Count On Me To Do My Part

MOSE ALLISON
"You Can Count On Me To Do My Part"
(Mose Allison)

Let's talk it over, let's get get it straight
Don't let the situation, escalate

You know there's always problems
When a man is wrapped up in his art
But don't you worry, baby
You can count on me to do my part

You keep on working, I'm looking 'round
Don't let your girlfriend put me down

You know it's tough these days
For a proud man to make a start
But don't you worry, baby
You can count on me to do my part

You wash the dishes, baby, I gotta run
You know that night life, ain't such fun

But don't wait up for me 'cause
I know you need your rest, sweetheart
And don't you worry, baby
You can count on me to do my part
