Good Girl Down

  • When you kissed me the other night
    It was my first taste of wine
    When I woke up the next morning
    You were still on my mind
    There's a bittersweet flavor on my tongue
    You haven't called me, so honey I'm done
    Ain't gonna hang around and wait
    For you to break my heart

    You can't get a good girl down
    You can't get a good girl down
    She got no secrets and she got no lies
    She'll burn you out with the truth in her eyes
    She's standin' on solid ground
    You can't get a good girl down

    I'm not just a pretty face
    Not a flower in a vase
    It's a man's world, and I'm a lady
    And they'll never appreciate me
    They don't take the time to get to know who I am
    Frankly, boys, I don't give a damn
    I got my head on straight
    Yeah yeah yeah yeah, no no no

    You can't get a good girl down
    You can't get a good girl down
    She got no secrets and she got no lies
    She'll burn you out with the truth in her eyes
    She's standin' on solid ground
    You can't get a good girl down

    Not gonna sit around, not gonna cry
    Won't be no tears fallin' from these eyes
    Put on my makeup, do up my hair
    Gonna walk tall and let 'em all stare

    You can't get a good girl down
    You can't get a good girl down
    She got no secrets and she got no lies
    She'll burn you out with the truth in her eyes
    She's standin' on solid ground
    You can't get a good girl down

    You can't get a good girl down
    You can't get a good girl down
    She got no secrets and she got no lies
    She'll burn you out with the truth in her eyes
    She's standin' on solid ground
    You can't get a good girl down
