Original video
Well, when I was young, my mama read me nursery rhymes beside my bed
And though they sounded mighty fine, they made no sense to me
Now that I am all grown up, it seems my nights have changed and such
So I went out and made me up a nursery rhyme for me

It goes bar light, bar bright
First bar that I see tonight
Wish I may, wish I might
Find someone to hold me tight

Hey diddle diddle, a man with a fiddle
And the girls sing along with the tune
Just a one more dance 'til you turn off the lights
And you can shut down this saloon

Y'know, I never understood how a big ol' gal
Could raise no kids in a shoe
And any old Jack goes jumping a candle
Needs to find something better to do

And a rub a dub dub, three men in a tub
Sure sounds kinda funny to me
So I made up a honky tonk nursery rhyme
And it's the only one I'll sing

It goes bar light, bar bright
First bar that I see tonight
Wish I may, wish I might
Find someone to hold me tight

Hey diddle diddle, a man with a fiddle
And the girls sing along with the tune
Just a one more dance 'til you turn out the lights
And you can shut down this saloon


I said, I never understood how a big ol' gal
Could raise no kids in a shoe
And any old Jack goes jumping a candle
Needs to find something better to do

And a rub a dub dub, three men in a tub
Sure sounds kinda funny to me
So I made up a honky tonk nursery rhyme
And it's the only one I'll sing

It goes bar light, bar bright
First bar that I see tonight
Wish I may, wish I might
Find someone to hold me tight

Hey diddle diddle, a man with a fiddle
And the girls sing along with the tune
Just a one more dance 'til you turn out the lights
And you can shut down this saloon

I said, just a one more dance 'til you turn out the lights
And you can shut down this saloon
