Quit It (Do It Again)
We've been plowin' hard rows for most of our lives
We've never thought it was a great sacrifice
'Cause at the end of the day, alone me and you
Now, brother, we know what to do

I said quit it -- do it again
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven
I'm countin' to ten
I said quit it -- do it again
Count me out, oh, count me in
Yeah, quit it, oh, baby, do it again

I've been thinkin' quite a bit 'bout women and men
How they get together, then in no time it ends
We work so hard all day that when I do see you
You turn me every color but blue


It seems to me there's too much time for foolin' around
'Cause who you wind up foolin' is you
All that social media can make you come unwound
But nothin' bothers us; we know the right thing to do



Yeah, quit it, oh, baby, do it again

Short Song Description:
Absence (and hard work) makes the heart grow fonder.
Long Song Description:
Absence (and hard work) makes the heart grow fonder. And when I get to see you, I want to play -- not fight.
Story Behind the Song:
I am uncle to two boys who lived in our home from the time they were babies (in the mid 60s). When they came there, I was in junior high school. Often, when I would "roughhouse" with them, they would say "quit it" and then immediately say "do it again." The other back story here is that my mother once explained to me that the incidence of divorce was so low in her "day" because people worked apart and so hard that when they got to see each other, they wanted to do anything but fight.
