  • Hey girl, you make me wanna write a song
    Sit you down, I'll sing it to you all night long
    I've had a melody in my head
    Since she walked in here and knocked me dead
    Yeah girl, you make me wanna write a song

    And it goes like ooh, what I wouldn't do
    To write my name on your heart
    Get to wrappin' my arms, baby, all around you
    And it goes like hey, girl I'm blown away
    Well, yeah, it starts with a smile
    And it ends with an all night long slow kiss
    Yeah, it goes like this

    Hey girl, you make me wanna drive you home
    Get you outta here and get you all alone
    I don't know what it is about you, baby
    But I'm all messed up and it might sound crazy
    But you make me wanna write a song

    And it goes like ooh, what I wouldn't do
    To write my name on your heart
    Get to wrappin. my arms, baby, all around you
    And it goes like hey, girl I'm blown away
    Well, yeah, it starts with a smile
    And it ends with an all night long slow kiss
    Yeah, it goes like this

    Lookin' at you, lookin' at me that way (at me that way)
    Makes me wanna grab my old guitar and play

    Somethin' like ooh, what I wouldn't do
    To write my name on your heart
    Get to wrappin' my arms, baby, all around you
    And it goes like hey, girl I'm blown away
    Well, yeah, it starts with a smile
    And it ends with an all night long slow kiss
    Yeah, it goes like this

    And it goes like ooh
    And it goes like hey
    And it ends with a kiss
    Yeah, it goes like this Writer/s: Benjamin Scott Hayslip, Jimmy Robbins, Thomas Rhett Akins
