  • To the guys that date my girls
    Let's get one thing straight
    When you pick 'em up, show up early
    When you bring 'em home, don't be late
    Mind your manners 'round their mama, boys
    Yeah, for what it's worth
    If you wanna get to their heart
    You'll have to get to hers

    And I know they won't be young forever
    But I'm gonna hold on as long as I can
    So when you take their hand remember
    You're holding my whole world
    Just a friendly reminder
    To the the guys that date my girls

    Now you know you can't fool me
    I know what's on your mind
    Wasn't long ago I was your age and the same thing was on mine
    But when you pull her close (pull her close)
    You save some room for Jesus
    'Cause if you ever cross that line I swear
    Boy, you're gonna need him

    And I know they won't be young forever
    But I'm gonna hold on as long as I can
    So when you take their hand remember
    You're holding my whole world
    Just a friendly reminder
    To the the guys that date my girls

    Yeah, yeah
    Oh

    If they're anything like their mama was
    They're gonna break some hearts
    But you might be the lucky one that's written in the stars
    So if she keeps you around
    You better make her your whole world
    Just a friendly reminder
    To the guys that date my girls
    Just a little bit of free advice
