Gladys Knight Save The Overtime

Darling, don’t stay too long

Pretty baby, I know you’re working hard for me

Darling, don’t stay away too long

Pretty baby, save the overtime for me

I walk around, tryin’ to find something to do

Baby, until your return

Turn on TV or play some solitaire

It does the job for a while

But nothing takes the place of you

Just ain’t no substitute

‘Cause you’re all that I want in me

Only you can set me free

Darling, don’t stay too long

Pretty baby, I know you’re working hard for me

Darling, don’t stay away too long

Pretty baby, save the overtime for me

My love starts to come down hard on me

And I just can’t find no relief, no

Only until I see your face again

I’m gonna be in such misery

Runnin’ to the door, peepin’ out the window

Hopin’ to see only you

Listen for the phone, checkin’ out the tick tock

Countin’ if it’s a certain time

Hear me now, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

Darling, don’t stay too long

Pretty baby, I know you’re working hard for me

Darling, baby, don’t stay away too long

Pretty baby, save the overtime for me, for me

Baby, baby, save the overtime

Save the overtime

I know you have your eight hours to do

But it just don’t feel good without ya

Oh, how I’m missing you, oh, feelin’ blue

I know it’s crazy, but I, I walk around

Tryin’ to find something else to do

Pretty baby, until your return

Turnin’ on the TV, or play some solitaire

Does the job for a while

Find yourself runnin’ to the door

Peepin’ out the window, hopin’ to see only you

Listen for the phone, checkin’ out the clock

Countin’ if it’s a certain time

Hear me now, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

Darling, don’t stay too long

Pretty baby, I know you’re working hard for me

Darling, don’t stay away too long

Pretty baby, save the overtime for me

Darling, don’t stay too long

Pretty baby, I know you’re working hard for me

Darling, don’t stay away too long
