Honky Tonk World
(Craig Wiseman/Paul Nelson)

There used to be a time candlelight and wine
Was all that a woman would need
Man you were a winner if you took her out to dinner
Or a movie she wanted to see
But the world has turned and it's time you learned
That the old ain't working no more
Yeah the rules have changed it's a brand new game
And buddy if you want to score

CHORUS
You gotta get off the couch
Get out of the house
Long about Friday night
Shine up your boots
Polish up your moves
If you want to keep her satisfied
Oh a little bump and grind'll
Do it every time
If you want to keep your little girl
But you don't stand a chance
'Less you take her out and dance
Cause we're living in a honky tonk world

Sooner or later all you couch potatoes
Are gonna be the lonely ones
If you want good lovin' then you gotta keep up
And you better know your Brook's from your Dunn's
Don't even think that your Englebert Humperdink record's gonna turn her on
Cause mister you can bet if you don't know the steps
Then you're gonna get left at home

CHORUS

If you were cro-magnon you'd be draggin' them women
By the hair to your cave
You'd be down on your knees citing them soliloquies
Back in Romeo's day
You'd e kind of nifty if we were in the Fifties
And you had a cool car to drive
But we're livinin' in the Nineties so you better shake your hiney
Or you're gonna get left behind

CHORUS

No you don't stand a chance
'Less you take her out and dance
Cause we're living in a honky tonk world
