Merle Haggard – If We’re Not Back In Love By Monday lyrics

We can call Mrs Johnson to keep the kids a day or two
Take the early flight to Florida just the way we used to do
Let room service bring us breakfast make love all through the day
If we’re not back in love by Monday we can go our sep’rate ways.

If we’re not back in love by Monday we can’t say we didn’t try
But before we burry our love let’s make sure we’ve let it die
Sleep a few more nights together say the things we used to say
If we’re not back in love by Monday we can go our sep’rate ways.

We could find that little cafe with the funny sounding name
Get the table by the window I’ll say I love you once again
If the violin player’s still there we’ll dance you until the break of day
If we’re not back in love by Monday we can go our sep’rate ways.

If we’re not back in love by Monday we can’t say we didn’t try
But before we burry our love let’s make sure we’ve let it die
Sleep a few more nights together say the things we used to say
If we’re not back in love by Monday we can go our sep’rate ways…
