Lyrics: 

Too Straight

V1
I saw her at the bar
in a tight black dress
with pearls and diamonds
trying to look her best
flashing lipstick smiles
to the guy on her arm
turning on all her
feminine charm

V2
I caught her brown eyes
for a moment or two
and I knew right away
what I wanted to do
I found myself a spot
on her other side
whispered in her ear
come with me outside

C
she might have seemed
a little too straight
but lucky for her
I could sit and wait ...
just a little bit

she might have seemed
a little too straight
but lucky for her
I certainly ain’t ...
not a little bit

V3
she shook her head no
and I said that’s okay
said I’ll see you around
maybe someday
she came back to the bar
last week all alone
I went to her and asked
to borrow her phone

V4
I put my number in her list
and added a note
I said give me a call
I will float your boat
she called late last night
asked to meet downtown
she wore that black dress
just to take me down

C
she might have seemed
a little too straight
but lucky for her
I could sit and wait ...
just a little bit

she might have seemed
a little too straight
but lucky for her
I certainly ain’t ...
not a little bit

OUTRO
she might have seemed
a little to straight
but what the hell
that night was great

Ha! I love this! I considered going in this direction for a second and decided I wasn't going to be able to pull it off but damn you sure did. Lyrics are clever as ever and there is the perfect amount of suggestion without being graphic at all. Great job with the skirmish!

Niiiice. I smiled my way through this! And we'll take your word for it not being autobiographical. Wink

lovely storytelling lilt and unfolds with a cheekiness and intrigue

Can I turn this one into a song? I love the sassiness.
