Sweet Peony

Bobbie Gentry
I want you to meet me at my houseboat
Be sure and wear your little black rubber rain coat
Write you a letter on thin lined note paper
Hide it in the tree where the houseboat float

Pulled a pully bone and make a fat wish
Crawdad in the skillet, gonna catch a catfish
Write you a letter on thin line note paper
Hide it on the table in the catfish dish

'Cause it's sweet peony, it's my dream
It's a sweet peony, is my dream

Houseboat floating down the bayou
Tried to catch a fish and now I think I'll try you
Write you a letter on thin line note paper
In a tree, a dish, and in the bayou too

And if our eyelids are gettin' heavy
We'll dock our houseboat on the muddy levy
Read all the letters on the thin lined note paper
Wad 'em up and eat 'em on the bayou

'Cause it's sweet peony it's my dream
It's a sweet peony, it's my dream

I want you to meet me at my houseboat
Be sure and wear your little black rubber rain coat
Write you a letter on thin lined note paper
Hide it in the tree where the houseboat float

'Cause it's sweet peony it's my dream
It's a sweet peony, it's my dream
