Buck Owens – Who’s Gonna Mow Your Grass? Lyrics

Who’s gonna dry your big blue eyes day after day?
Who’s gonna jump when you say frog ?
Who’s gonna bow and stray
After I’ve gone away?

Who’s gonna kiss ya and who’s gonna miss ya?
Who’s gonna hold to your hand?
Who’s gonna chop your kindlen wood
After I’ve made new plans?
Hey, who’s gonna be your man?

Who’s gonna bring you your breakfast in bed?
Who’s gonna whisper goodnight?
Who’s gonna keep you warm as toast
On those cold winter nights?

And who’s gonna be your puppy dog
When I’m a thing of the past?
Hey, who’s gonna mow your grass?

[Instrumental]

Who’s gonna bring you your breakfast in bed?
Who’s gonna whisper goodnight?
Who’s gonna keep you warm as toast
On those cold winter nights?

And who’s gonna be your puppy dog
When I’m a thing of the past?
Hey, who’s gonna mow your grass?

Hey, who’s gonna mow your grass?..
