Sue Thompson — James (Hold The Ladder Steady) lyrics

James, (James) James (James) hold the ladder steady
James, (James) James (James) I'm packed tonight I'm ready
James, (James) James (James) hold the ladder steady
I'm a-comin' down to your ar-ar-ar-rms
I'm a-comin' down to your arms

Now James and I we went to mama and showed her my diamond ring
She said "My poor little baby, you must be crazy, to think of such a thing"

So James, (James) James (James) hold the ladder steady
James, (James) James (James) I'm packed tonight I'm ready
James, (James) James (James) hold the ladder steady
I'm a-comin' down to your ar-ar-ar-rms
I'm a-comin' down to your arms

Now James and I we went to daddy and said that we want to be wed
Daddy said "Nope, you'll just have to elope" and laughed as he went to bed

But James, (James) James (James) hold the ladder steady
James, (James) James (James) I'm packed tonight I'm ready
James, (James) James (James) hold the ladder steady
I'm a-comin' down to your ar-ar-ar-rms
I'm a-comin' down to your arms

I'd hate to see 'em in the morning when they both completely flip
He'll be sayin' "they cain't", she'll be feeling faint
And I'll be kissing my husband's lips

So James, (James) James (James) hold the ladder steady
James, (James) James (James) I'm packed tonight I'm ready
James, (James) James (James) hold the ladder steady
I'm a-comin' down to your ar-ar-ar-rms
I'm a-comin' down to your arms

James, (James) James (James) hold the ladder steady
James, (James) James (James) I'm packed tonight I'm ready
James, (James) James (James) hold the ladder steady
I’m a-comin’ down to your ar-ar-ar-ms
