Ben Colder - Almost Persuaded No. 2 Lyrics

Last night I stumbled in to a barroom,
I met a girl with a pint in her purse.
She was cute as two speckled puppies,
And I said, "Ben, you could do worse."


So, I walked across the room full of tables,

I walked across her table too.

And I plopped myself down in a chair,

I said, "Hi there."

She whispered, "My name is Mabel."
And all I could say was, "Hi there."


I said, "Permit me to introduce myself,
Ben Colder, here."
And she said, "It ain't been no colder here,
Than it has anyplace else."



I had her almost persuaded,


Hey, what happened to the doodle-dee-doo?


To slip 1 strip herself of her pride.
Almost persuaded,
To slip me a li'l drink on the side.


Then we danced and we danced,
And we danced and we danced.
That is, I thought we was dancin',
Till somebody stepped on my hand.
Then I looked into her eyes and I saw it,
The reflection of my wedding band.


And I thought, "That sure is strange,
'Cause, I'm not even married!"
What it was was my wrist watch.



I had her almost persuaded,


Once more there Hargus.

Thank you.

To come and be my own.


Smart alec!
(Almost persuaded.)
Boy!
And then her boyfriend came,
And made me go home.
