Nettie Harris

lyrics

She takes the waiting handful of coins and notes,
From the tables edge,
Lit in the light of his studio room,

And prints will be all she has left to show,
When the money is spent,
And the jobs are gone to girls less old.


Well they all want to be with her,
But all they get is her time,
So take your time, Nettie, darling,
Nettie, take your time.


The story of a documentary film,
That stopped in New Orleans,
Where you are still,
In a trailer made for two,

And as she slips her tights over her hips,
And puts her things back on…


I know that you will leave there,
With paper in your hand,
And if his hand was a good sum,
It will be resting on your….
Resting on your back,


Well they all want to be with her,
But all they get is her time,
So take your time Nettie, darling,
Nettie, take your time.
