BEHIND THE EIGHT BALL
(Bill Haley)
BILL HALEY & THE FOUR ACES OF WESTERN SWING
(Recorded 1947-1950 for Radio)

I'm behind the 8-ball with my baby
All she does is sit around and talk
Been behind the 8-ball with my baby
Ever since she caught me steppin' out
Got the blues, and boy I don't mean maybe
Got to get it straightened out somehow
She loved me very much, but I got myself in Dutch
And I'm right behind the 8-ball with her now

I'm behind the 8-ball with my honey
I can't get to first base anymore
She won't speak to me for I loved her money
Never felt so doggone low before
How that woman treats me isn't funny
You would think I done an awful crime
You're guilty, she did cry and I had no alibi
So I'm behind the 8-ball servin' time

If you fool around like there's a point to
Brother you're just ridin' for a fall
When you're woman catches you, I warn you
You'll be right behind the old 8-ball
She will even make your best friend scorn you
Get you in hot water with them all
So take this good advice, don't step out at any price
Or you will be behind the old 8-ball

So take this good advice, don't step out at any price
Or you will be behind the old 8-ball
