Some of her dancin' days are over
Some of her dancin' days are done
But she's still got a couple of two steps
That she ain't shown no one

Time will tell if she needs you
Time will tell if she don't
And what'll you do if she believes you
What'll you do if she won't

You can't fence her in with wire
You can't fence her in with words
Bet your life she's on fire
She's got a pistol in her purse

Don't sell her short if she leaves you
Don't sell her short if she stays
'Cause she's got cards up her sleeve still
That she never got to play

It ain't like she's trying to lose you
She's just thinking for herself
She said come on if it moves you
Don't just stay there by yourself

You can't fence her in with wire
You can't fence her in with words
Bet your life she's on fire
She's got a pistol in her purse

You can't fence her in with wire
You can't fence her in with words
Bet your life she's on fire
She's got a pistol in her purse

Some of her dancin' days are over
Some of her dancin' days are done
