Slow Poke

Pee Wee King & His Golden West CowboysBuy this song

[Male (M) and Female (F) voices alternate]

F: (Slow poke, slow poke, I'm a silly old slow poke)
M: You keep me waitin' till it's gettin' aggravatin', you're a slow poke
F: You wait and worry but I never seem to hurry, I'm a slow poke
M: Time means nothin' to you, I wait (you wait) and then
F: Late again, eight o'clock, nine o'clock, quarter to ten
M: Why should I linger every time you snap your finger, little slow poke?
F: Why can't I hasten when I see the time's a-wastin'? I'm a slow poke, dear
M: Why should I keep tryin' to change you? It's not the thing to do
F: Here's the thing to do-I guess you'll have to learn to be a slow poke, too (slow
poke, too)

F: (Slow poke, slow poke, I'm a silly old slow poke)
ALL: We keep on waitin' till it's gettin' aggravatin', what a slow poke
We wait and worry but there's never any hurry, what a slow poke
Time means nothin', you see, we wait and then
Late again, eight o'clock, nine o'clock, quarter to ten
M: Why should I linger every time you snap your finger, little slow poke? (slow
poke)
Why can't you hasten when you see the time's a-wastin'? You're a slow poke,
dear

F: Why do you keep tryin' to change me? It's not the thing to do
M: Then I guess I'll have to learn to be a silly old slow poke, too
F: Slow poke, slow poke, you're a silly old slow poke
M: Slow poke, slow poke, I'm a silly old slow poke
BOTH: Slow poke!
