Lyrics

Got my hands on A little bit of dough So I went to the grocery store Got some steaks to go Went by and picked up My gal, Teddi Jo We had ourselves a picnic Beside a dirt road (CHORUS) Rooty toot toot, rooty toot toot We had it made in the shade Like a ball through the hoop Spinning and tumbling Inside this hula hoop Living and learning Rooty toot toot We laid out a blanket And started a fire Had the radio playing From inside the car I took off my shirt And kicked off my shoes She read the paper And told me the news She said, there`s A lot of people out there Who are at the end of their rope Sometimes, baby You`ve got to lay low (CHORUS) We stayed there all day We both got us Some real good suntans I thought that was ok Sometimes life can be so grand

We were getting ready To shake out of that place When the Illinois state Trooper got in my face He said, you`re On private property But once he cooled down He was okay Sometimes you`re golden, man That`s all I got to say (CHORUS) 2X
