STAYIN' IN

By John D. Loudermilk

I punched my buddy in the nose after lunch
Now I'm in trouble 'cause the dean saw the punch
He was telling things that were not true about her
So I let him have it in the cafetaria

Now I'm stayin' in, stayin' in
While my baby's walkin' home with him
They passed my window hand in hand just then
But what can I do 'cause I'm stayin' in

If she just knew what that son-of-a-gun said
I know she wouldn't be caught with him dead
She don't know what he has got up his sleeve
But she would find out if I could only leave

But I'm stayin' in, stayin' in
While my baby's walkin' home with him
I did it then and I'd do it again
I love her so but I'm stayin' in
