Make Him Behave

The Collins Kids

(Dusty Rose, Columbia 21514, 1956)

I got a little brother just as mean as he can be
And everytime a boyfriend calls on me
I take him to the parlor and we're just about to kiss
Little brother runs in and he hollers, hey sis!
Oh ma, can't you make him behave
He's just a nuisance and he won't go away
Standing there just a-lookin' so dumb
Well she's a-eatin' candy and she won't give me none
Oh ma, can't you make him behave
He's just a nuisance and he won't go away

We're sittin' in the parlor with the lights down low
A real soft music on the radio
He starts to whisper sweet nothings in my ear
Little brother runs in, anybody in here?
Oh ma, can't you make him behave
He's just a nuisance and he won't go away
He asks silly questions, there's no doubt
Oh why you sittin' here with the lights turned out
Oh ma, can't you make him behave
He's just a nuisance and he won't go away

It used to be we could give him a dime
To get rid of him just any all time
But now it seems that that ain't enough
Well you know the costs of livin' just a-keeps a-comm' up
Oh ma, can't you make him behave
He's just a nuisance and he won't go away
I guess we'll have to take in a show
I like that, just when do we go
Oh ma, can't you make him behave
Three's a crowd and he won't go away
