Well, the eagle on the dollar says "in God we trust" 
You say you want a man, I wanna see that dollar first, tell me-- 
(Chorus) 
If the river was whiskey, and I was a duck, 
You know I'd swim to the bottom, Lord, an' never come up, tell me-- 
(Chorus) 
Rocks in the ocean, baby, fish in the sea 
knows you mean the world to me, tell me-- 
(Chorus) 
Well, the hesitatin' stalker's got them hesitatin' shoes 
Lord, I got them Hesitatin' Blues, tell me-- 
How long do I have to wait? 
Can I get you now, Lord, must I hestitate 
Said, can I get you now, how long must I hesitate?
