Woke Up With Wood

Album: Afterburner (1985)
  • When I woke up this morning
    I was feeling mighty good.
    My baby understood had to do what she should
    Lying near a pile of wood.
    Laying it on some,
    Playing with it some
    When I, I woke up with wood.

    I was lying there thinking 'bout basketball
    Trying not to lose my mind
    My baby came to help and I let out a yell,
    She grabbed me from behind.
    Laying on it some,
    Playing with it some
    When I, I woke up with wood.

    Beauty queens fall in trances,
    Debutantes lose their furs.
    But it felt so good from where they stood,
    They were working on a pile of wood.
    Laying on it some,
    Playing with it some
    When I, I woke up with wood. Writer/s: FRANK BEARD, BILLY GIBBONS, DUSTY HILL
