Charlie Louvin & Melba Montgomery - Something To Brag About lyrics


I've got a real important job in a large office building

Ridin' people in an elevator

I drive a '57 Chevrolet with busted tail lights

Burnt out valves and leaky radiator

I wear a twenty dollar suit I bought from JC Penny's back in '62

But I've got something to brag about something to brag about

Yes something to brag about in you


I'm a short order cook at an all night cafe

Down on 18th Avenue and 12th Street

I wear a swinging mini dress that I made for myself

From mama's kitchen curtains and old bed sheets

I've got seventeen pages of top value stamps and one old pair of shoes

But I've got something to brag about, something to brag about

Something to brag about in you


When you're with the fellas I know you start to bragging

Bout my hour glass figure and my big brown eyes

You tell your girlfriends bout my good, good lovin'

And that's one pleasure that money can't buy


Let's get married in the not too distant future

We'll rent a little flat on 29th Street

You know we'll hang our washing on a clothesline from the window

We'll feast on cornbread butter beans and lunchmeat

We won't have a thermostat or a big long Cadillac

But we'll have a love that's true

And I'll have something to brag about I'll have something to brag about

Something to brag about in you
