Honky Tonk World

This song is by Chris LeDoux and appears on the album Haywire (1994) and on the live album Live (1997).

Well there used to be a time when candlelight and wine
Was all that a woman would need
Man, you'd be a winner if you took her out to dinner
Or a movie she'd been wanting 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 brand new game
And buddy if you want to score

You've got to 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 will 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

Well, sooner or later all you couch potatoes
Well, you're gonna be the lonely ones
And 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 Engelbert 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

You've got to 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 will 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

Now, if you were cro-magnon you'd be draggin' them woman by the hair to your cave
You'd be down on your knees citing them soliloquies back in Romeo's day
Yeah, you'd be kind of nifty if we were in the 50's
And you had a cool car to drive
But we're living in the 90's so you better shake your hiney
Or you're gonna get left behind

You've got to 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 will 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
No, you don't stand a chance less you take her out and dance
'Cause we're living in a honky tonk world
