A Ballad of Hey Girl

Hey girl whatcha gonna do tonight?
I’ve got my mama’s car keys and you’ve got a ticket to ride
I’m licensed to ill with a drive to thrill
Rockabilly roots and a quart of Jack Daniels

I heard your boyfriend ran away
But don’t cry he’s gone when I’m standing here to stay
With nothing to give but a little more skin
The wettest kiss and the will to live

I want you
You feel blue
I’ve been waiting so long to get my hands on you

I wanted to say you don’t understand
I don’t want to be your boyfriend I want to be your man
Cause I’m tired of meddling in broken hearts
Wasting my love on electric guitars

So hey girl whatcha gonna do tonight?
I’ve got a box of condoms, and your wicked smile’s on my mind
I hope you’re down with whiskey and rye
Late night T.V. and button flies

I want you
You feel blue
I’ve been waiting so long to get my hands on you

Hey girl whatcha gonna do tonight?
I’ve got you in mind
Come with me
Be mine

Be mine …
