Yes, she blew through the door like TNT, 
Put her hand on her hip, pointed a finger at me. 
Said: "I'm a whiskey drinkin', cowboy chasin', helluva time. 
"I like Kenny, Keith, Allan and Patsy Cline. 
"I'm a full grown Queen Bee lookin' for honey. 
"Ha-ooh-hoo, aw, play somethin' country." 

Yeah, the band took a break, 
The DJ played P Diddy. 
She said: "I didn't come here to hear, 
"Somethin' thumpin' from the city." 
Said: "I, I shaved my legs, I paid my money. 
"Ha-ooh-hoo, play somethin' country. 
"Ha-ooh-hoo, aw, play somethin' country." 

Crank up the band, play the steel guitar. 
Hank it up a little, let's rock this bar. 
Threw back a shot; yelled: "I'm a George Strait junkie. 
"Ha-ooh-hoo, play somethin' country. 
"Ha-ooh-hoo, aw, play somethin' country." 

Yeah, the bartender yelled:"why'all, it's closin' time." 
She got this wild look on her face, 
An' said: "Your truck or mine, 
"I know a place down the road, 
"It's kinda funky. 
"Ha-ooh-hoo, all out in the country. 
"Ha-ooh-hoo, now, play somethin' country." 

Crank up the band, play the steel guitar. 
Hank it up a little, let's rock this bar. 
Threw back a shot; yelled: "I'm a George Strait junkie. 
"Ah-ooh-hoo, play somethin' country. 
"Ha-ooh-hoo, now, play somethin' country."
