Say, you wouldn't call a man a two-time man
If he two-timed one time.
You couldn't call a man a fisherman,
That is, if he just fished one time.
You know, it ain't what you do, it's the times that you
If you two-time once there ain't a darn thing to it.
But you couldn't call a man a two-time man
If he just two-timed one time.
Now, you couldn't call me a two-time man, could you?
If I two-timed one time?
Naw, you couldn't, that wouldn't be right,
To call me a two-time man just for once, just that one time.
Although I get 'em all upset with my billing and cooing,
And then I say, "Babe, oh, how'm I doin'?"
Still you couldn't call me a two-time man,
That is, for just two-timin' just that one time.
