First Ring

from BaD Dog Buffet

If she don’t pick up on the first ring
If she don’t pick up on the first ring
Don’t pick up on the very first ring
Take it as a sign
That it don’t mean a thing
If she don’t pick up on the very first ring
I’m-a leave that girl alone

She might be busy in the garden
She might be busy in the garden
She might be busy
And she don’t hear the phone
Thru the whistle of the train
Or the mourning dove’s moan
If she don’t pick up on the first ring
I’m-a leave that girl alone

I can see her hair in a French braid
I can see her hair in a French braid
French braid hair
Keep it up out the way
When she’ busy in the garden
Don’t hear the phone
If she don’t pick up on the first ring
I’m-a leave that girl alone

She take her hair down when she love me
She take her hair down when she love me
Gilded gold clip
Keep the French braid back
While she’s busy in the garden
Where she can’t hear the phone
If she don’t pick up on the first ring
I’m-a leave that girl alone
