  • I saw your picture in a paper
    Honeymoon in Jamaica, she's a lucky girl
    You look so grown up in your black tux
    From a ball cap in a pick up, seems like another world
    You and me and our big dreams, falling in love
    We were two kids in the backseat, all fearless and young

    I got the first kiss and she'll get the last
    She's got the future, I got the past
    I got the class ring, she got the diamond and wedding band
    I got the boy, she got the man

    Yeah there's an old you that I knew,
    Fake IDs to get into those spring break bars
    Back woods on a four wheel, hanging on tight
    I can still feel my racing heart
    And now you're cleaned up with a hair cut, nice tie and shoes
    If things were different and I had a choice, which would I choose?

    I got the first kiss and she'll get the last
    She's got the future and I got the past
    I got the class ring, she got the diamond and wedding band
    I got the boy and she got the man

    I got the first kiss and she'll get the last
    We each got something, the other will never have
    I got the long hair, hot head
    She got the cool and steady hand
    I got the boy and she got the man
    I got the boy and she got the man Writer/s: CONNIE HARRINGTON, JAMIE LYNN SPEARS, TIM NICHOLS
