Ev’ry Little Thing

([Some] years ago I thought I’d try my hand at country western songs, had two made into professional demos, but there were no takers. Here are the lyrics of one of them.)

Ev’ry little thing you do today
To get a little into my way
Is really okay with me.

You’re the only one I know
Can flatter me happy so
Whenever you get in my way.

‘Cause I really like you there,
I like you anywhere,
I like you ev’rywhere I am.

Little things you do with me,
All the times you’re true to me,
Whenever you get in my way.

When I wake to take a shower
An’ you’re in “just an hour”
It’s power power power to my woman!

‘Cause though my towel’s all wet
You’ve laid out another new set
And that is okay, too, with me.

When I see my easy chair
Filled with you reading there,
It’s really okay with me.

You’re the only one I know
Who never gets in my way
Whenever you get in my way.

Here a-with and there a-with,
In front of an’ in back of me,
Walkin’ ‘long side of me, oh;

Lookin’ an’ turnin’ ’bout,
You it’s without a doubt,
I am so happy to know.

When I walk out to my car
‘Ready shiftin’ there you are,
Smilin’ a sneaky mystery.

An’ so I slide right in,
Say “Take me for a spin,
To work in the way with me.”

Hey! you gonna work my shift?
Hey! that would be a real gift;
But no, that might be a mistake.

I got a hungry hunch
When it was time for my lunch
You’d already be eatin’ my steak!

But I’d really like you there,
I’d like you anywhere,
I’d like you ev’rywhere I am.

Little things you do with me,
All the times you’re true to me,
Whenever you get in my way.

Here a-with and there a-with,
In front of an’ in back of me,
Walkin’ ‘long side of me, oh;

Lookin’ an’ turnin’ ’bout,
You it’s without a doubt,
I am so happy to know.

Ev’ry little thing you do today
To get a little into my way
Is really okay with me.

You’re the only one I know
Can flatter me happy so,
Whenever you get in my way.
