  • Last night, outta the blue
    Drifting off to the evening news
    She said "Honey, what would you do
    If you'd never met me"
    I just laughed, said "I don't know,
    But I could take a couple guesses though"
    And then tried to dig real deep
    Said, "Darling honestly

    I'd do a lot more offshore fishing
    I'd probably eat more drive-thru chicken
    Take a few strokes off my golf game
    If I'd have never known your name
    I'd still be driving that old green Nova
    I probably never would have heard of yoga
    I'd be a better football fan
    But if I was a single man
    Alone and out there on the loose
    Well, I'd be looking for a woman like you"

    Well, I could tell that got her attention
    So I said, "Oh yeah, I forgot to mention
    I wouldn't trade a single day
    For a hundred years the other way."
    She just smiled and rolled her eyes
    'Cause she's heard all of my lines
    I said, "Come on girl, seriously
    If I hadn't been so lucky

    I'd be shooting pool in my bachelor pad
    Playing bass in my cover band
    Restocking up cold Bud Light
    For poker every Tuesday night, yeah
    I'd have a dirt bike in the shed
    Not one throw pillow on the bed
    I'd keep my cash in a coffee can
    But if I was a single man
    Alone and out there on the loose
    Well I'd be looking for a woman like you" mm

    She knows what a mess I'd be if I didn't have her here
    But to be sure, I whispered in her ear
    "You know I get sick deep-sea fishing
    And you make the best fried chicken
    I got a hopeless golf game
    I love the sound of your name
    I might miss that old green Nova
    But I love watching you do yoga
    I'd take a gold band on my hand
    Over being a single man
    'Cause honestly I don't know what I'd do
    If I'd never met a woman like you" Writer/s: Johnny Bulford, Jonathan Stone, Philip Barton
