Burton Cummings — Your Back Yard lyrics

I wrote you long love letters, Mama, I sent 'em on day by day
Need you now even more than I did before
As I'm lookin', here's your Daddy comin'
With a big ole shotgun too
Lovin' situtation look mighty poor
So if'in you're really wonderin' what I'm doin' in your backyard
I told you, Baby, I'd beat it home so soon
But if you're really worrin' 'bout what I' m doin' in your backyard
Come on out later I'll show you by the light of the moon
I had some dreams and fortune really, Mama, I got carried away
And lookin' back even more than I did before
As I'm leapin', creepin', hidin', sleepin' here's your Daddy with a shotgun too
My lovin' situtation ain't nothin' but poor
So if'in you're really worried 'bout what I'm doin' in your backyard
I told you, Baby, I's beatin' it home so soon
Well if you're really worrin' 'bout what I' m doin' in your backyard
Come on out later I'll show you by the light of the moon
Baby, thinkin' 'bout reelin' back, wonderin' why I'm standin' here cryin', Honey, lookin' in your backyard
Don't ya worry 'bout nothin', ya got nothin' on your mind but me
But as I'm layin' on my back about, thinkin' 'bout summertime gettin' back all the way
Everything I see, Honey, reminding me
Come on get your lovin' man, come on get him while he's hot, get him on the run
Babe, I here your lookin' but really too blind to see, oh, hey, What ya gonna think
About wham-bam, thank you Maam, where you goin' on the Wildwood trail
Everything I see, Honey, reminding me
Baby, might be thinkin' 'bout, really livin' back, layin' back, standin' in your backyard
Told you, Baby, I's beatin' it home so soon
If you're really wonderin' what I' m doin' in your backyard
Come on out later, Babe, I'll show you by the light of the moon
