  • Turn it up son
    Alright boys, this is her favorite song, you know that, right?
    So if we play it good and loud she might get up and dance again
    Aw she's pretty good now
    Here she comes, here she comes
    Left, left, left-right-left

    Hustlers shootin' eight ball
    Throwin' darts at the walls
    Feeling damn near 10 feet tall
    Here she comes Lord help us all
    Old TW's girlfriend done slapped him out his chair
    Poor old boy it ain't his fault it's so hard not to stare at that

    [Chorus]
    Honky tonk badonkadonk
    Keepin' perfect rhythm make you want to swing along
    Got it goin' on like Donkey Kong
    And ooo well shut my mouth, slap your grandma
    There ought to be a law, get the sheriff on the phone
    Lord have mercy how'd she even get them britches on
    With that honky tonk badonkadonk, aw son

    Now honey you can't blame her for what her mama gave her
    It ain't right to hate her for working that moneymaker
    Band shuts down at two but we're hanging out 'til three
    We hate to see her go but love to watch her leave with that

    [Chorus]

    Oh that's what I'm talkin' 'bout right there

    We don't care about the drinkin', barely listen to band
    Our hands they start to shakin' when she gets the urge to dance
    Drivin' everybody crazy you think you fell in love
    Boys you better keep your distance, you can look but you can't touch

    [Chorus]

    That honky tonk badonkadonk
    That's it right there boys
    That's why we do what we do
    It ain't for the money, it ain't for the glory
    It ain't for the free whiskey
    It's for the badonkadonk Writer/s: DALLAS DAVIDSON, JAMEY JOHNSON, RANDY HOUSER

  • Daniel from Winchester, OhioThe dance remix of this song is better than the original to be honest.
  • Andrew from ???, Ini loved this song ever since the first time i heard it
  • Landon from Winchester, OhThis song lead to a Wikipedia article defining the term "Badonkadonk" as "a slang word for a woman's buttocks, usually firm." How was the name decided? By the sound that both the cheeks make when they bump into eachother. I think this song is a step forward in country music. I think every once in a while, a country singer should push the limits of singing about love, heartbreak, Dixie, and America and sing about something completely out of whack, like Tracy Adkins did!
