You Ain't Dolly (And You Ain't Porter)

Album: Like a Rose (2013)
  • You ain't Dolly and you ain't Porter
    She's a little bit fuller and you're a whole lot shorter
    Let's dance all night and fill the jukebox full of quarters
    'Cause you ain't Dolly, no, and you ain't Porter

    Well I noticed you right off the bat in those cowboy boots
    Who couldn't help but see you in that rhinestone suit
    That's cause I'm the reigning queen of karaoke night
    Well if I get drunk enough to sing, hell I just might

    Hey now, don't you worry cowboy, cause I'll get you through
    We'll sing a cheating song just like they used to do

    Cause you ain't Dolly and you ain't Porter
    She's a little bit fuller
    Yeah, but you're a whole lot shorter
    Let's drink all night and fill the jukebox full of quarters
    Cause you ain't Dolly and you ain't Porter

    You'll probably see me country singing on The Voice someday
    Yeah and I'm the guy they wrote about in 50 Shades of Grey
    Why don't you come on back to my place and you can have your way
    Well baby that sounds tempting, but I just can't stay
    Oh we won first prize cowboy, let's just split the dough
    Honey I will always love you, but we'll never know

    Cause you ain't Dolly and you ain't Porter
    She's a little bit fuller
    Yeah, and you're a whole lot shorter
    We danced all night and filled the jukebox full of quarters
    Cause you ain't Dolly and you ain't Porter, no
    No, you ain't Dolly and you ain't Porter Writer/s: Ashley Monroe, Vincent Grant Gill
