Yes, it's called "SLOW POKE".

SLOW POKE

Written by Pee Wee King, Redd Stewart & Chilton Price

Pee Wee King & His Golden West Cowboys - 1951

Ralph Flanagan & His Orch. (vocals: The Singing Winds) - 1951

Helen O'Connell - 1951

Arthur Godfrey - 1951

Roberta Lee - 1951

The Ray Conniff Singers - 1964

YOU KEEP ME WAITIN? TILL IT?S GETTIN? AGGRAVATIN?,

YOU?RE A SLOW POKE,

I WAIT N? WORRY BUT YOU NEVER SEEM TO HURRY,

YOU?RE A SLOW POKE,

TIME MEANS NOTHIN? TO YOU, I WAIT AND THEN,

LATE AGAIN,

EIGHT O?CLOCK, NINE O?CLOCK,

QUARTER TO TEN,

WHY SHOULD I LINGER EV?RY TIME YOU SNAP YOUR FINGER,

LITTLE SLOW POKE,

WHY CAN?T YOU HASTEN WHEN YOU SEE THE TIME?S A-WASTIN?,

YOU?RE A SLOW POKE, DEAR,

WHY SHOULD I KEEP TRYIN? TO CHANGE YOU,

IT?S NOT THE THING TO DO,

I GUESS I?LL HAVE TO LEARN

TO BE A SLOW POKE TOO!

YOU KEEP ME WAITIN? TILL IT?S GETTIN? AGGRAVATIN?,

YOU?RE A SLOW POKE,

I WAIT N? WORRY BUT YOU NEVER SEEM TO HURRY,

YOU?RE A SLOW POKE,

SLOW POKE.

Cheers..........Mel
