Lyrics

honey won't you please sing another song?
honey won't you please be gone?
your sentimental shakedown rattles through my bones
honey won't you, honey please, move your honey on?

momma won't you take another turn?
momma when you gonna learn?
trouble comes to everyone who dares to be a muse
momma won't you, momma please, spare your momma's blues?

what you don't know never will hurt you
don't you know that i used to
pray like all the others on what you never will
honey won't you, honey please, hold that honey still?

sister won't you show mercy for my deeds?
sister won't you hear my pleas?
virtue takes a lover in vice, God only knows
sister won't you, sister please, let your sister go?

honey won't you listen, listen to my song?
honey won't you please be strong?
you may not see the ending but the story's not so long
honey won't you, honey please, shake your honey, hun?
