Waylon and Willie - I Could Write A Book About You lyrics

[Chorus:] Well, I know you like a brother And I know you as well There's some things we could talk about Some things we'd never tell A few things in particular, an episode or two I could write a book about you [Verse 1:] (Now listen to this) Big Betty wore a lot of make-up. Didn't she sweat a lot? The Maybelline ran like a river whenever she got hot Last time I saw Betty, as best as I can recall You were ridin' her piggyback down that motel hall (Hey, wait a minute! That ain't true) That's not the way I remember it You're lying like a rug on the floor The only Betty that I can remember I remember was yours (Sure!) And since you brought up the subject Let's talk about your taste in art The windows and walls and the ceilings and floors You mighta got a little too dark And there's a motel out in Fresno Where neither one of us can go back You had a thing about yellow and green So you painted the whole room black That ain't the way I remember it Seems like I had a little help You weren't along just for the ride You hit a few strokes yourself [Chorus] [Outro:] (But you don't have to worry. I ain't gonna do it, Waylon) (I hope not!) I could write a book about you
