Southern Girls

  • I've been north,
    I've been east to the California beach
    There's only one place I know where to find you
    And all you Southern girls got a way with your words
    And you show it
    You say hump and I'll jump
    You say go and I'll know
    Waste no time getting
    So close to you
    And you'll never run way
    When you find out why I wanted to find you

    Ooh baby need some brand new shoes
    Get out on the street
    You got nothing to lose
    You rock me and your crazy
    And everyone says it, yeah yeah
    Southern girls, you got nothing to lose
    Southern girls, you got nothing to lose

    I've been up I've been down
    I've been weak I've been strong
    But I never met someone like you
    And you'll never run away
    When you find why I wanted to find you
    You say hump and I'll jump
    You say go and I'll know
    Waste no time getting
    So close to you
    All you Southern girls
    Got a way with your words
    And you show it

    Ooh baby need some brand new shoes
    Get out on the street
    You got nothing to lose
    You rock me and your crazy
    And everyone says it, yeah yeah
    Southern girls, you got nothing to lose
    Southern girls, you got nothing to lose

    You think this boy, he loves you
    Southern girls
    You make it hard oh, so hard
    I've been north, I've been east to the California beach
    There's only one place I know where to find you
    And all you Southern girls got a way with your words
    And you show it

    Ooh baby need some brand new shoes
    Get out on the street
    You got nothing to lose
    You rock me and your crazy
    And everyone says it, yeah yeah

    Southern girls, you got nothing to lose
    Southern girls, you got nothing to lose
    Southern girls
