We can call Mrs Johnson to keep the kids a day or two
Take the early flight to Florida just the way we used to do
Have room service bring us breakfast make love all through the day
If we're not back in love by Monday we can go our sep'rate ways

If we're not back in love by Monday we can't say we didn't try
But before we bury our love let's make sure we've let it die
Sleep a few more nights together say the things we used to say
If we're not back in love by Monday we can go our sep'rate ways

We could find that little cafe with the funny sounding name
Get the table by the window I'll say I love you once again
If the violin player's still there we'll dance until the break of day
If we're not back in love by Monday we can go our sep'rate ways
If we're not back in love by Monday

Merle Haggard

Merle Ronald Haggard (born April 6, 1937) is an American country music song writer, singer, guitarist, fiddler and instrumentalist. Along with Buck Owens, Haggard and his band The Strangers helped create the Bakersfield sound, which is characterized by the unique twang of Fender Telecaster and the unique mix with the traditional country steel guitar sound, new vocal harmony styles in which the words are minimal, and a rough edge not heard on the more polished Nashville Sound recordings of the same era. more »
