BACK-BURNER LADIES               

by Lynea Search


Hello darlin’, I’m just callin’
Callin’ you to set things straight
Well you’ve been on the run
I hear you found someone
And this time the lady won’t wait
I hope you’ll understand
You’re such a special man
I know your other women would agree
But I can’t take any more
Of what you’ve got in store 
Baby, I’m tired of being . . . (one of your)

Back-burner ladies
Simmerin’ in your maybes
Givin’ you time
To make up your mind
While you were only playin’ a game
Stove-top stand-in
Love-burned mannequin
Now I’m ready for a lover
Who will give me
A front-burner flame

Hey now baby, I don’t think you see
Now I’m wise to your ways
And though you say you care
I just don’t think it’s fair
And someday honey you’ll have to pay
So now I’ll say goodbye
And I’ll try not to cry
While you’re out lovin’ somebody new
And if she says I do
Hope she’s enough for you
‘Cause I’m no longer
Spending my days (as one of your)

Back-burner ladies
Simmerin’ in your maybes
Givin’ you time
To make up your mind
While you were only playin’ a game
Stove-top stand-in
Love-burned mannequin
Now I’m ready for a lover
Who will give me
A front-burner flame
I said I’m ready for a lover
Who will give me
A front-burner flame
