Tools Of The Trade

Tools of the Trade

© Harris Tobias

 

She said come on baby now don’t be afraid

And slipped her hand into mine

Then she explained how she had to get paid

But you know we'll have a good time

 

I stammered and blustered, I guess I was shy

I was looking for someplace to run

She patted my cheek and tickled my thigh

And whispered, “Come on let’s have fun”

 

So we went to her room and took off our clothes

Then she crawled onto her side of the bed

She spread out her arms and gave me a wink

And I'll never forget what she said

 

(chorus)

She said tools of the trade

Tools of the trade

You gotta use what the good lord has made

That’s why he made ‘em so don’t be afraid

So we applied the tools of the trade

 

Many years later when I was all grown

I took the sweetest young thing for my bride

She was so nervous about the unknown

I said we had nothing to hide

 

After a while she understood

That love was a physical thing

And all of our parts fit together so well

And together we often would sing

 

We’d sing tools of the trade

Tools of the trade

You gotta use what the good lord has made

That’s why he made ‘em so don’t be afraid

So we applied the tools of the trade

  

(Bridge)

We had seven children and now they’re all grown

Many of them have kids of their own

I’m thoroughly amazed at the seeds that I’ve sown

And what a beautiful family I made

Now I’m an old man all withered and gray

I spend half my time asleep in the shade

Here’s a piece of advice I want to relay

You gotta use the tools of the trade

  

(chorus)

I told you, Tools of the trade

Tools of the trade

You gotta use what the good lord made

That’s why he made ‘em so don’t be afraid

Apply the tools of the trade
