  • Girl, it's high time, I tell ya
    No more messin' around
    Time to lay these cards on the table
    And just throw it on out

    I'm talkin' you and me with the same street name
    Same last name, same everything
    It's a real thing, a how I feel thing
    So I'mma go on and take a swing

    You find the spot and I'll find the money
    You be the pretty and I'll be the funny
    You plant the flowers, I'll plant the kisses
    Baby, let's get right down to business

    I'll hang the pictures, you hang the stars
    You pick the paint, I'll pick a guitar
    Sing you a song out there with the crickets and the frogs
    You name the babies and I'll name the dogs, yeah

    You can park your car in the driveway
    I'll park my truck in the grass
    I'll put a little swing on the front porch
    If you put a little tea in my glass

    Watch the sun set from a gravel road
    Kiss me in the kitchen on your tippy toes
    Still lovin' on you when the rooster crows
    Watching way more than the garden grow

    You find the spot and I'll find the money
    You be the pretty and I'll be the funny
    You plant the flowers, I'll plant the kisses
    Baby, let's get right down to business

    I'll hang the pictures, you hang the stars
    You pick the paint, I'll pick a guitar
    Sing you a song out there with the crickets and the frogs
    You name the babies and I'll name the dogs

    Yeah, laying next to you every night
    Sounds like a damn good life

    You find the spot and I'll find the money
    You be the pretty and I'll be the funny
    You plant the flowers, I'll plant the kisses
    Baby, let's get right down to business

    I'll hang the pictures, you hang the stars
    You pick the paint, I'll pick a guitar
    Sing you a song out there with the crickets and the frogs
    You name the babies and I'll name the dogs
    Yeah, I'll name the dogs
    You name the babies and I'll name the dogs
    Yeah, I'll name the dogs Writer/s: Benjamin S. Hayslip, Joshua Dennis Anthony Bagles, Matthew Peters Dragstrem
