Need a little time off for bad behavior
The devil in me done been asleep too long
I need a little time off for bad behavior
It looks like I've been too good for too long

Well, I'm up and gone at the break dawn
I've been workin' like a regular dog
To keep my woman and the lights and the water
And the phone turned on

I've been sayin', "Yes sir" all day at work
I've been sayin', "Yes ma'am" at home
I've been storin' up the cuss words
Keepin' 'em under my tongue

I need a little time off for bad behavior
The devil in me done been asleep too long
I need a little time off for bad behavior
It looks like I've been too good for too long

I had this number on my mind a while
I've been fightin' off the urge to call
A pretty little strawberry blonde with a Southern drawl

Some good old boys called from Alabama
Said the fish has been a missin' me
And I need to renew my friendship with Jim Bean

I need a little time off for bad behavior
The devil in me done been asleep too long
I need a little time off for bad behavior
It looks like I've been too good for too long

Need a little time off for bad behavior
The devil in me done been asleep too long
I need a little time off for bad behavior
It looks like I've been too good for too long

I need a little time off for bad behavior
The devil in me done been asleep too long
I've gotta have a little time off for bad behavior
It looks like I've been too good
