Sweet Talker

from Honor the Father by The Restoration



Narrators: Roman Bright, Diana Colly, 1937

I was so blue
‘Til I met you.
D-D-Diana, could I trouble you—(hiccup!)—for a dance?

No thank you, Roman, I am not looking for romance.

Alrighty, well I guess I’ll go give that apple bobbin’ a chance...

I’d like to sweet talk her, ‘til she’s sweet on me.
I’d like to sweet talk her, but that never works for me.

Tiny Snellgrove:
Say there Roman, man she can’t keep sayin’ no to you all night.

Well, Tiny, you know I—I don’t want to be a pushy guy—
God help me, who’s that guy touching her dress, holding her hand—
I think they’re going to dance!

Don’t flip your lid! You gotta sweet talk her.

I’m gonna sweet talk her, ‘til she’s sweet on me.
I’m gonna sweet talk her her, ‘til she’s sweet on me.

Pastor Greg Pope:
Say kids, save some room for the Holy Spirit!
