Trick Bag - Earl King/The Gories/The Artesians/Robert Palmer

Trick Bag
Twelve o’clock at night, you walk out the door
And you told me baby, you were goin to the drug store
Well, in my mind I just knew you were lyin’
The drug store closed at a quarter 'til nine

And I said I saw you kissin’ Willie across the fence
Heard you tellin’ Willie I ain’t got no sense
The way you been actin’ is such a drag
You gonna put me in a trick bag

When I come home, you start an argument
Just to keep me from askin where my voodoo went
I kick out the front door, oh, I hear the back door slam
I look outa my window, somebody’s takin’ it on the lam

You know I saw you kissin’ Willie across the fence
Heard you tellin’ Willie I ain’t got no sense
The way you been actin’ is such a drag
You gonna put me in a trick Bag

We had a fight, baby, oh, and you got mad
You got on the telephone and called your mom and dad
Your dad said, "Yeah, now, brother, she’s my daughter, and I’m her paw"
"But, you ain’t nothin’ but a son-in-law"

You know I saw you kissin’ Willie across the fence
Heard you tellin’ Willie I ain’t got no sense
The way you been actin’ is such a drag
You gonna put me in a trick bag
