Some Girls They Just Can’t Be Tamed

Now here is a song I can relate to! This is a track from my new favourite country band! I discovered it via the lead singer who WAS in my all-time other favourite band (Jakalope). I better get my mandolin game down before I can get the nerves to ask to play in the band!

“When I was a young girl my momma used to say
‘I hope you have a kid like you who talks back that way’
They said as I was getting older I would settle down
Grow up, get a real job, and turn my life around
Can’t tell you if it’s right or wrong, it’s just my way
One day I’m gonna have a girl, I hope she’s just like me
Some things they never change
Some girls they just can’t be tamed
I’ll still have my wild streak and I’ll run this pony show
With a beer in the one hand, baby in the other, still playing the banjo
I’ll take my girl around the world, backstage at every show
Not sitting in a schoolhouse, she’ll learn as much front row
And when my girl gets older, I’m gonna show her how
She can do any damn thing she wants with no one to hold her down”
