Sorry Charlie - Carl Perkins

Sorry Charlie

Carl Perkins

(Carl Perkins, Columbia, 1974)

I took her from the gutter
Just where you threw her down
You walked on her like she was dirt
You kept on walking 'round

Now, I'm sorry Charlie
Just as sorry as I can be, listen to me
Well, that's the way the cookie crumbles
Charlie, she belongs to me, yes siree

You took advantage of her young love
Of high class intellect
Why you're so low, that you don't know
The meaning of respect

Now, I'm sorry Charlie
I'm just as sorry as I can be, mm-mm-mmm
Oh, that's the way the cookie crumbles
Charlie, she belongs to me, yes siree

You make brags around this town
Until you're satisfied
You just brag, and Charlie 'cause
Deep down you know you've lied

And I'm sorry Charlie
Well, I'm just as sorry as I can be, yes siree
Oh, that's the way the cookie crumbles
Charlie, she belongs to me, mm-mm-mmm

Well, now we're both in love
Aand about to say "I do"
That's all she wrote Charlie
We won't be needin' you

Lord, I'm sorry Charlie
I'm just as sorry as I can be
You better listen to me, yes siree
That's the way the cookie crumbles
Charlie, she belongs to me, mmm, all right

Now we get that organ one more time, let's go

Sorry Charlie, oh, I'm sorry
Yeah, all right
Mm, I'm sorry Charlie, sorry as I can be, all right
Yes...
