My buddy said his girlfriend is as pretty as can be
He said help a brother out tonight and come double date with me
She's gotta a baby sister and they're headed into town
They're lookin' for a good time
They're fun to be around

I said what do she look like?
He scratched his head and stated
She was a home comin' football queen before she graduated
We'll wine and dine and do 'em fine
And really double date 'em
Then take 'em back to the motel six and try to separate 'em

They showed up in a pick up truck
They were right on time
His was kinda hefty
But not half as big as mine

I'm runnin' block
Turn the lights down low
Runnin' block
Don't want know one to know
That I tried to drink her skinny but she's still about two-fifteen
Sometimes you got to bow up
And just take one for the team

She cleaned her plate at dinner
Then she ate what's left of mine
Then she wolfed down a big cheesecake as I drank all the wine
She strolled out to the patio for an after dinner cig
I said "bro you done 'er this time and gonna owe me big

You know why?
'Cause my brother's havin' a party
Thought you outta know
He's got co-eds swimmin' naked

Reason I can't go

'Cause I'm runnin' block
Turn the lights down low
Runnin' block
Sure don't want know one to know
That I tried to drink her skinny but she's still about two- fifteen
Sometimes you got to bow up
Just take one for the team

Now bow up boys

When we got back to the motel
I kicked up my feet, 
And she put me in a head lock and says snuggle up with me
My buddy finished early, when he walked through the door
I was laying there half naked she had me pinned down to the floor
Son I can’t believe you caught me, this big old jelly roll
You laugh at me tomorrow 
You can’t ever tell a soul

I'm runnin' block
Turn the lights down low
Runnin' block
Don't want know one to know
That I tried to drink her skinny but she's still about two-fifteen
Sometimes you got to bow up
Just take one for the team
