Girl Gone Wild

She's got a golden tooth and a little foreign truck

and a smile that says it all.

She's been thinkin' 'bout things that she wouldn't dream of doing

and crusing for a big fall.

Oh it's been seven months since her old man left her

for a short skirt show-off blond.

If this ain't the night that she gets it all right

then I guess I pegged her wrong.

 

So she sewed up the hem on her pretty gingham gown,

And she cut the front way down too.

She's been up-town to the beauty salon,

And she bought some new high-heeled shoes.

She's dressed fit to kill, and if she has her will,

Oh thats just what she'll do.

It's been a long time since she had herself a man,

And she's got a lot of loving to do.

 

Ah but that was last night, and this is today,

She danced all night till the sky turned grey.

Held a lot of cowboys in her arms,

but she drove that little truck home alone.

 

Now she put away the gown, and she's pulling on her jeans,

And she's gettin' on her cowbow boots.

'Cause that sun is high in the southern sky,

An' she's got a lot of workin' to do.

Well she had a lot of fun for a girl on the run,

And she howled at the moon.

But if she gets a man he's gotta be a hand, 'Cause a honky-tonk hero won't do.

 

But when the stars are bright and the moon is light,

She'll head up town on a Saturday night.

Be a girl gone wild with her golden smile.

And she'll hols a cowbowy heart a while.

 

She put away the gown, and she's pulling on her jeans,

And she's gettin' on her cowbow boots.

'Cause that sun is high in the southern sky,

An' she's got a lot of workin' to do.

Well she had a lot of fun for a girl on the run,

And she howled at the moon.

But if she gets a man he's gotta be a hand,

'Cause a honky-tonk hero won't do.
