A Little Less Conversation
Mac Davis Lyrics

Baby, I wanna tell you something
I'm gonna go
I'm gonna go for a while actually
But, before you say anything
Please, please, please hear me out

Well, I know I'm not the most romantic guy in the world
I cannot create even a simple line of a love note
All I want to do is to tell you how much
I would like to stay for you
But circumstances won't allowed me
You know I must go, dear
far away and it takes longer than a day

Well boy, I know you're not the most romantic guy in the world
But you already mesmerize me with your simple words
All I want is you, and for you to stay with me
I don't want these things to change
I don't care what's going on
I just don't want to be alone
I cannot be apart from you
Please I'm begging you

I just want you to be near
You know how much it would mean
To see you laugh and hold your hand
When we're dating on a weekend

Girl, I know what you're trying to say
But I can't
It just too complicated for me
To choose between my two dreams
I want you
But I can't do what you ask me to do

Well boy, I just have one question left
Is this means we are over?
No baby, I'll be gone for a while
But I want you and me still together

How can I be sure
That you will keep your heart to me
And you won't see other girls?

You know I would not do that
How can I convince you?
Just stay here and be with me
No no I must go

Babe, I just want you to stay
You know I would if I can
I hope it doesn't just another lie you've made
(I never lie to you Girl), I need you to understand
we're meant to be
I don't get what you trying to say
Do you want to runaway?
No babe, I want you to wait.
I'll be back again,

Please babe, take my promise, just wait
(Ok. I'll take your promise, I'll wait)
I'll be back someday, till then
(You'll be back someday, till then)
Don't ever let me go

I'm so glad
Can you telling me this not
Baby I will not do it
I'll be back again

This album came out the year before I was born, and was the first album I ever owned--as a 4 year old who didn't always understand what the lyrics meant but always knew Mac was my man.

Another one gone from my teen years!! Thanks for the great music!!! RIP Mac Davis


My first album by Mac I bought in the early seventies. I still have it ! Fantastic song !

Warren Korgeski

Wow! Didn’t know he wrote it! Great sound!

Лидия Матвеева

Как всегда замечательно

Sticky James

Excellent! More than just a hint of Tony Joe White in this version!

Paulo Roberto Pereira

Descanse em paz!

Jesús Oliver

I'm shocked, never heard it before and I like it better than the Elvis version, which I like it very much anyway. Much in the Tony Joe White style.

Diane Fiske-Foy

Mac probably wrote this, like he did several Elvis’ songs. I like both versions.

​@Frank Furfaro Well, maybe I'm as deaf as you are polite
