  • Just look at her sittin' there
    Sweatpants, T-shirt, in her comfy chair, hmm
    Her hair in a bun, one hand on a mug
    And the other one's playin' snare
    To a George Strait vinyl, that yes-or-no line'll get her close
    But I don't think she can understand
    Just how far I've been lettin' my heart fall
    But what's in my head

    She don't know I got some big, big plans
    Build a little house out on some hand-me-down land
    Find a little island where we go to get tan
    I bet we take our kids down there one day
    And I know she wouldn't mind if I
    Did a little somethin' like find a flight
    Overnight to paradise and leave tonight
    And I'ma put a diamond on her hand

    She don't know I got some big, big plans
    (Well, she don't know, well, she don't know)
    She don't know I got some big, big plans
    (Well, she don't know, well, she don't know)

    Well, she don't know I already bought a ring
    Hid it in the bottom left drawer right beside the sink
    Shiny emerald diamond on a brand-new band
    Asked her mama for permission and her daddy for her hand

    I got some big, big plans
    Build a little house out on some hand-me-down land
    Find a little island where we go to get tan
    I bet we take our kids down there one day
    And I know she wouldn't mind if I
    Did a little somethin' like find a flight
    Overnight to paradise and leave tonight
    And I'ma put a diamond on her hand

    She don't know I got some big, big plans
    (Well, she don't know, well, she don't know)
    She don't know I got some big, big plans
    (Well, she don't know, well, she don't know)

    Well, here I go
    'Cause right now, we're back in her hometown
    And I'm down on one knee
    I guess she finally figured out
    I'm gonna ask her to marry me

    I got some big, big plans
    Build a little house out on some hand-me-down land
    Find a little island where we go to get tan
    I bet we take our kids down there one day
    And I know she wouldn't mind if I
    Did a little somethin' like find a flight
    Overnight to paradise and leave tonight
    And I'ma put a diamond on her hand

    She don't know I got some big, big plans
    (Well, she don't know, well, she don't know)
    She don't know I got some big, big plans
    (Well, she don't know, well, she don't know) Writer/s: Christopher Eric Lane, Ernest Keith Smith, Jacob Robert Durrett
