She Used To Get Around

                                                                                   By Mike Whiteley                               

 

1st Verse

Our families were the best of friends

When we were growing up

And, man, I had a crush on her

Back when we were just pups

But she was in the cool kid scene

And I was just a clown

Yeah, but now she wears my ring

I guess I wore her down

 

Chorus

But, she used to be wild

She was Friday night’s child

No, there ain’t a shot that she hasn’t tried

Well, she’s caught a few beads

Down on Bourbon street

And, on a Harley, she’s a hell of a sight

She made all kinda noise

Hanging out with the boys

While I waited for her patiently

Yeah, she used to get around

And she finally got around to me

 

2nd Verse

Now, I’m not really trying to say

She was that kind of girl

She just had a few wild hairs

And, sometimes they got curled

I knew some day she’d come around

But, man, she took it slow

And, as far as her past, man

I think I’d rather not know

 

Chorus

 ‘Cause, she used to be wild

She was Friday night’s child

No, there ain’t a shot that she hasn’t tried

Yeah, she’s caught a few beads

Down on Bourbon street

And, on a Harley, she’s a hell of a sight

She made all kinda noise

Hanging out with the boys

While I waited for her patiently

Yeah, she used to get around

And she finally got around to me

 

Bridge

Well, now, we’ve been married, going on 25 years

And, I still have to watch her after just a few beers

‘cause the salt shaker turns in to her microphone

She jumps up on the table, and the party is on

 

Last Chorus

Yeah, she’s still a little wild

She’s still Friday Night’s child

She still likes to get to feeling right

She has quite a ball at the VFW hall

  Most times I keep her out of a fight

When she gives me the sign

I know it’s hurry home time

She’s still the lady from my wildest dreams

Yeah, she used to get around

And she finally got around to me

 

Tag

Yeah, she used to get around

And, I’m so glad she got around to me
