Songtekst

I found a woman
I felt I truely loved
She was everything
I'd ever been dreaming of

But she was bad, I didn't know it
Her pretty smile never did show it
All I knew is what I could see
And I knew I wanted her for me

Took her home to mama
Mama wanted to see my future bride
Oh, she looked at us both
And then she called me to her side

She said: son, take time to know her
It's not an overnight fling
Take time to know her
Please don't rush into this thing

But I didn't listen to mama
I went straight to the church
I just couldn't wait to have a little girl of mine
When I got off from work
The preacher was there
So was my future bride
He looked at us both and then he called me to his side

He said: son, take time to know her
It's not an overnight fling
Take time to know her
Please don't rush into this thing

When it look like everything was gonna turn out alright
Then I came home a little early one night
And there she was kissin' on another man
Now I know what mama meant, when she took me by the hand

And said: son, take time to know her
It's not an overnight fling
Take time to know her
Please don't rush into this thing

You better take time to know her
It's not an overnight fling
Take time to know her
Please, please don't rush into this thing

Take time to know her
It's not an overnight fling
Take time to know her
Please don't rush into this thing
