DON'T TRADE
(Eddie Noack)
CURTIS GORDON (MERCURY 70538, 1954)

Take away the bright lights and music
Take away the powder and paint
And you'll find that a honky tonk angel
Can't compare with your home lovin' saint

She's just another woman who'll never make a home
She's a sweet heart before you she'll have others - then you're gone
Don't trade love that's faithfull for a honky tonk scene
Don't trade your old fashioned sweet heart for a honky tonk queen

She'll lie and she'll cry on your shoulder
And she'll speak of a broken romance
She'll say that things might have been diff'rent
Take bitty but don't take the change

Don't take a cheap imitation when you have a little pearl
Don't take this hard hearted woman for your old fashioned girl
Don't trade one who loves you for the bright lights that gleam
Don't trade your old fashioned sweet heart for a honky tonk queen
