(C) Play it straight vanilla, (F) boys,
Thats what Hank always (C) said.
No fancy (C7) words or (G7) chords
Keep it straight vanilla (C) instead
(C) Peal that ten-dollar (F) word,
Peal it down to a (C) dime.
Sing those (C7) simple (G7) words
And keep chopping country (C) time
(C) No need for flaky, flowery (F) stuff
Keep the beat, make it (C) mellow.
Let it show, (C7) that diamond in the (G7) ruff
Like Hank said, keep it straight---(C) vanilla.
(C) Yeah, no (C7) fancy words or (G7) chords
Just keep it straight (C) vanilla.
