Lyrics: Ida Cox.
Tune: Ida Cox.


I’ve always heard that haste makes waste,
So I believe in takin’ my time.
The highest mountain can’t be raced.
It’s something you must slowly climb.
I want a slow and easy man.
He needn’t ever take the lead
’Cause I work on that long-time plan.
And I ain’t a-lookin’ for no speed.

I’m a one-hour mama, so no one-minute papa
Ain’t the kind of man for me.
Set your ’larm clock, papa; one hour, that’s proper.
Then, love me like I like to be.

I don’t want no lame excuses ’bout my lovin’ bein’ so good
That you couldn’t wait no longer. Now, I hope I’m understood.
I’m a one-hour mama, so no one-minute papa
Ain’t the kind of man for me!

I can’t stand no greenhorn lover like a rookie goin’ to war
With a load of big artill’ry but don’t know what it’s for.
He got to bring me reference, with a big long pedigree
And must prove he’s got endurance or he don’t mean ‘snap’ to me.

I can’t stand no crowin’ rooster what just likes a hit or two.
Action is the only booster of just what a man can do.
I don’t want no imitation. My requirements ain’t no joke
’Cause I’ve got pure indignation for a guy who’s lost his stroke.

I’m a one-hour mama, so no one-minute papa
Ain’t the kind of man for me.
Set your ’larm clock, papa; one hour, that’s proper.
Then, love me like I like to be.

I may want love for an hour then decide to make it two.
Takes an hour ’fore I get started; maybe three before I’m through.
I’m a one-hour mama, so no one-minute papa
Ain’t the kind of man for me!
