Pee Wee King performs "Slow Poke"Live video.

"Slow Poke" is a 1951 popular song credited to three writers: Pee Wee King, Redd Stewart, and Chilton Price. Actually Price wrote the song in 1951, as she thought the song described her friend, King, very well. King recorded the song and Stewart did the vocal. Price gave rights to the other two in exchange for publicity, as she felt she knew nothing about the music distribution business. The song did so well commercially that when Price wrote the song "You Belong to Me" the next year, she felt she could do better by ceding partial credit for authorship to King and Stewart than trying to publicize the song herself, so that song as well was credited to King, Stewart, and Price, though Price was the sole author

Pee Wee King Slow Poke lyrics

You keep me waitin' till it's gettin' aggravatin'

You're a slow poke

I wait and worry but you never seem to hurry

You're a slow poke

Time means nothin' to you

I wait and then

You're late again, eight o'clock

Nine o'clock, quarter to ten

 

Why should I linger every time you snap your finger

Little slow poke

Why can't you hasten when you see the time's a-wastin'

You're a slow poke, dear

Why should I keep tryin' to change you

It's not the thing to do

I guess I'll have to learn to be a slow poke to

 

You keep me waitin' till it's gettin' aggravatin'

You're a slow poke

I wait and worry but you never seem to hurry

You're a slow poke

Time means nothin' to you

I wait and then

You're late again, eight o'clock

Nine o'clock, quarter to ten
