Lyrics

You’ve got a little fetish
And you noticed I’m just your type
You’ve been making eyes at me for hours tonight
Asking do I maybe wanna stick around
And see what could happen with you?
So I keep flashing my ring in your face
But nothing gets through

I’ve been around guys like you plenty times before
They go looking for just one thing and I fit the score
You’re playing up your references
Giving me reasons why
You’ll make a quick million
And I’ll be happy you’re my guy

Maybe you’re not spinning lies, maybe you’re sincere
You say I’m pretty and could you buy me another beer
Maybe there’s a lot that I could learn if I stay
But, honey, not every lesson in life’s
Gotta be learned the hard way

You’re moving in closer now
I have to keep inching away
Just to keep my own oxygen
And keep your beer breath out of my face
You’re telling me you’re on top
Of the next big thing for sure
And wouldn’t I love to get in on the ground floor

I have to keep reminding you
That’s my foot and that’s my thigh
They’re mine and not yours
And my husband’s a jealous guy
I might just be skeptical
But you’re no godsend to women
And if you’re looking to get lucky
Then you’re in the wrong pool swimming

Maybe you’re not spinning lies, maybe you’re sincere
You say I’m pretty and could you buy me another beer
Maybe there’s a lot that I could learn if I stay
But, honey, not every lesson in life’s
Gotta be learned the hard way
