Don’t Mind if You Go

 

Chorus:

I don’t mind if you go

I just don’t want you to leave

Could use some time on my own

Don’t take it personally

I just need a little space

I won’t forget I can be replaced

But sometimes a man

Needs some time to pretend

He’s still free

No, I don’t mind if you go

I just don’t want you to leave

                                                           

How long’s it been since you’ve seen your sister?

I bet she misses you

If you leave now you’ll be there by dinner

Stay a day or two

Don’t worry ‘bout me, I’ll be alright

The boys are coming over for some poker tonight

So ya might want to get while the traffic is light

(spoken) I ain't pushing you out the door or anything (but)

 

No I don’t mind if you go

I just don’t want you to leave

 

I love how we spend all our time together

Every minute of every blessed day

And I know we're gonna last forever

And I wouldn’t have it any other way

But, lookie there, its time for that football game

And there’s a six-pack and a see-gar

Calling my name

You're gonna miss all that fun, now ain't that a shame

(spoken) The keys are right there on the counter, babe (yeah)

 

I don’t mind if you go

I just don’t want you to leave

 

 I got a beer in my hand

TV remote in the other

And if you’re too busy to call, I’ll understand
By the way, when was the last time you saw your mother…
