It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
I’m worried now… but I won’t be worried long

Got myself a Cadillac, thirty dollars down
Got myself a brand new house five miles out of town
Got myself a gal named Sue, treats me really fine
Yes, she’s my baby and I love her all the time

It takes a worried, worried man to sing a worried, worried song
It takes a worried, worried man to sing a worried, worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
I’m worried now… but I won’t be worried long

I’ve been away on a business trip, travelin' all around
I’ve got a gal and her name is Sue, prettiest gal in town
She sets my mind to worryin' every time I’m gone
I’ll be home tonight… so I won’t be worried long

It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
I’m worried now… but I won’t be worried long

Well, Bobby’s in the living room, holding hands with Sue
Nickie’s at that big front door, 'bout to come on through
Well, I’m here in the closet. Oh, Lord, what shall I do?
We’re worried now but we won’t be worried long

It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
I’m worried now… but I won’t be worried long
