STOP THE WORLD
(Belew - Stevenson - Smith)
WARREN SMITH (rec. January 1957)

Well the world keeps a-turnin', goin' round and round
I can't seem to keep my feet on the ground
Ain't nobody gonna be my boss
So if you stop the world baby, I'll jump off

Well you say you're tired of me singin' the blues
But baby some folks are born to lose
I don't mean to sound so cross
But if you stop the world baby, I'll jump off

Well some folks do and some folks don't
Some say they will and some say they won't
Somewhere along the line I got lost
So if you stop the world baby, I'll jump off

Well you say you're tired of me singin' the blues
But baby some folks are born to lose
I don't mean to sound so cross
But if you stop the world baby, I'll jump off

Well slippin' and slidin' jumpin' back in the alley
That's all right for ol' long tall Sally
But when it comes to me and you
Slippin' and slidin' baby just won't do
I don't mean to sound so cross
But if you stop the world baby, I'll jump off
