Lyrics

I found a woman
I felt a true in love
She was every thing
I'd ever been dreaming of

But she was bad, I didn't know it
Her pretty smile never did show it
All I knew is what I could see
And I knew I wanted her for me

I took her home to Mama
Mama, wanna see my future bride
Well, she looked at us both
And then she called me to her side

She said, "Son, take time to know her
It's not an overnight thing
Take time to know her
Please, don't rush into this thing"

But I didn't listen to Mama
I went straight to the church
I just couldn't wait
To have a little girl of mine

When I got off from work
The preacher was there
So was my future bride
He looked at us both
And then he called me to his side

He said, "Son, take time to know her
It's not an overnight thing
You better take time to know her
Please, please, don't rush into this thing"

But it looked like every thing
Was gonna turn out all right
And then I came home
A little early one night

And there she was
Kissing on another man
Now, I know what Mama meant
When she took me by the hand

And said, "Son, take time to know her
It's not an overnight thing
Take time to know her
Please, don't rush into this thing
Take time to know her
It's not an overnight thing
Take time
