  • Well, I'm not talkin' 'bout locking down forever
    Baby, that would be too demanding
    I'm just talkin' 'bout two lonely people
    Who might reach a little understanding
    I'm not talkin' 'bout knockin' out heaven
    With whether we're wrong or we're right
    I'm not talkin' 'bout hookin' up and hangin' out
    I'm just talkin' 'bout tonight

    You were sitting on your barstool
    Talking to some fool who didn't have a clue
    I guess he couldn't see you were looking right at me
    'Cause I was looking at you too
    Then it's, "Do you wanna dance? Have we ever met?"
    You said, "Hold your horses, boy, I ain't that easy to get"

    Oh, I'm not talkin' 'bout locking down forever
    Baby, that would be too demanding
    I'm just talkin' 'bout two lonely people
    Who might reach a little understanding
    I'm not talkin' 'bout knockin' out heaven
    With whether we're wrong or we're right
    I'm not talkin' 'bout hookin' up and hangin' out
    I'm just talkin' 'bout tonight

    She said, "I only take it slow
    By now you oughta know that I ain't digging this
    If we can start as friends
    The weekend just might end with a little kiss"
    She said "I'm a lady looking for a man in my life
    Who'll make a good husband, I'll make a good wife"

    Easy, now

    I'm not talkin' 'bout locking down forever
    Baby, that would be too demanding
    I'm just talkin' 'bout two lonely people
    Who might reach a little understanding
    I'm not talkin' 'bout knockin' out heaven
    With whether we're wrong or we're right
    See, I'm not talkin' 'bout hookin' up and hangin' out
    I'm just talkin' 'bout tonight
    Yeah, I'm just talkin' 'bout a little bit later tonight Writer/s: Scott W. Emerick, Toby Keith
