I say, ‘do like I say, not like I do’ –
“Sneaking Up Early on Miller Time.”
Now there’s a country title for you.

same ol’, same ol, time after time –
I say, ‘do like I say and not like I do.’

“Sinning Don’t Cause the Sun to Shine” –
now there’s a country title for you

Now there’s a country song for you.
