  • Sometime in the summer of '96
    I was off on a road trip
    A couple hundred bucks and a case of beer
    Outside Panama City limits is where it all begins

    2 a.m., I saw hazard lights
    Appeared to be a dame distressed in the night
    She was 5 foot 6 and damn she was built
    I slammed on the brakes and got sideways and told her to get in

    She said, "Where you headed, to the city?"
    I said, "Yeah, I'm gonna have some fun"
    She tossed back her hair in confidence
    And said, "Mind if I come?"

    2 days later we ain't left the room
    Did all in there that we could think to do
    I could see she was restless, so we hit the town

    Ended up at a place where the windows read
    Tattoos, piercings, belly rings here
    Tattoos, piercings, belly rings here

    Into the back she went and disappeared
    Reappeared an hour later cheesing ear to ear
    I thought, hell, I need to try and get back there
    When she unzipped her pants and said, "Lookee here"

    I gotta brand new tattoo
    All the colors in it remind me of you
    I gotta brand new tattoo
    All the colors in it remind me of you

    The blue is for the bruise that you left in my heart
    And the red is for the color we're about to paint this town
    Ooh, I gotta new tattoo

    One week passed, woke up a day late for work
    I found my good time gone and she took my shirt
    Drove by all the places that we had been
    There was one where the windows read

    Tattoos, piercings, belly rings here
    Tattoos, piercings, belly rings here

    Into the back I went and disappeared
    Reappeared an hour later cheesing ear to ear

    I gotta brand new tattoo
    All the colors in it remind me of you
    I gotta brand new tattoo
    All the colors in it remind me of you

    The blue is for the bruise that you left in my heart
    And the red is for the color we're 'bout to paint this town
    Ooh, I gotta new tattoo
    New tattoo

    And I cannot forget
    That smile when she said
    I gotta brand new tattoo
    All the colors in it remind me of you
    I gotta brand new tattoo
    All the colors in it remind me of you

    The blue is for the bruise that you left in my heart
    And the red is for the color we're about to paint this town
    Ooh, I gotta new tattoo
    New tattoo

    I gotta brand new tattoo
    All the colors in it remind me of you
    New tattoo
    Tattoos, piercings, belly rings here
    A new tattoo
    Tattoos, piercings, belly rings here
