  • You better take it from me
    That boy is like a disease
    You're runnin' and tryin' and tryin' to hide
    And you're wondering why you can't get free
    He's like a curse; he's like a drug
    You get addicted to his love
    You wanna get out, but he's holding ya down
    'Cause you can't live without one more touch

    He's a good time cowboy Casanova
    Leaning up against the record machine
    He looks like a cool drink of water
    But he's candy-coated misery
    He's the devil in disguise
    A snake with blue eyes
    And he only comes out at night
    Gives you feelings that you don't wanna fight
    You better run for your life

    I see that look on your face
    You ain't hearing what I say
    So I'll say it again 'cause I been where ya been
    And I know how it ends, you can't get away
    Don't even look in his eyes
    He'll tell you nothing but lies
    And you wanna believe that you won't be deceived
    If you listen to me and take my advice

    He's a good time cowboy Casanova
    Leaning up against the record machine
    He looks like a cool drink of water
    But he's candy-coated misery
    He's the devil in disguise
    A snake with blue eyes
    And he only comes out at night
    Gives you feelings that you don't wanna fight
    You better run for your life

    Run, run away, don't let him mess with your mind
    He'll tell you anything you wanna hear
    He'll break your heart; it's just a matter of time
    But just remember

    He's a good time cowboy Casanova
    Leaning up against the record machine
    He looks like a cool drink of water
    But he's candy-coated misery
    He's the devil in disguise
    A snake with blue eyes
    And he only comes out at night
    Gives you feelings that you don't wanna fight
    You better run for your life

    Oh, you better run for your life
    Oh, you better run for your life Writer/s: Brett James, Carrie Underwood, Mike Elizando

  • Star from Best Place Ever, GaLuxxus: You're so right. I love her and she doesn't need to flair her body around like that. We aren't saying she needs to wear a snuggie, we're simply saying that she needs to wear some more clothes. (I do like the orange one, though, :D) Although this is better than Before He Cheats... I also don't appreciate her supporting lesbian groups. She's going against her religion!
    PS The song itself is FANTASTIC and I love it!
  • Rosa from San Bernardino, Ca@Lexxus: You swear like she was in a thong and a bra. She can't wear granny clothes for this song. She's a beautiful woman who wore clothing that was just right...
  • Sara from Union City, TnSlutty...really... I never saw slutty not even once. What was she gonna do wear a snuggie and not move?
  • Lexxus from Not Telling......;d, TxPersonally I lost all my respect for Carrie Underwood in this video. Its not nessasarily the song, but more the video. Dosen't anyone see all the slutty moves and the slutty outfits.
    Carrie really went to far in sexual appeal in this video. Usually she stays away from that, so I'm severly disapointed in her.
  • Zoey from Amesville, OhIT'S THE BEST SONG EVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Breanna from Henderson, NvThis song`s totaly awesome! My favorite country song right now
