Three Down One to Go

Three Down and One to Go

Get the card table out
Iíll see if the kids are asleep
Go ahead and deal
Iíll be back after I sneak a peek,

Into the bedroom,
Well what do you know
Theyíre almost all asleep
Three down and one to go

What do you like to drink
Coffee, Tea or a home brew
Bottled it this morning
Itís brand new.

Later into the night
After the game was done
Time to arouse the kids
And head for home.

Never needed a baby-sitter
Back there on the farm
The kids traveled with their parents
Where they were safe from harm.
