Toby Keith — Runnin' Block lyrics

My buddy said his girlfriend is as pretty as can be
He said help a brother out tonight
And come double date with me
She's gotta a baby sister and they're headed into town
They're lookin' for a good time
They're fun to be around

I said what do she look like?
He scratched his head and stated:
"She was a home comin' football queen
Before she graduated.
We'll wine and dine and do 'em fine
And really double date 'em
Then take 'em back to the Motel Six and
Try to separate 'em.

They showed up in a pickup truck
They were right on time.
His was kinda heafty
But not half as big as mine.

I'm runnin' block
Turn the lights down low
Runnin' block
Don't want know one to know
That I tried to drink her skinny but she's still about 215
Sometimes you got to bow up
And take one for the team

She cleaned her plate at dinner
Then she ate what's left of mine.
Then she wolfed down a big cheesecake
As I drank all the wine.
She strolled out to the patio
For an after dinner cig
I said "Bro you done 'er this time
And gonna owe me big.

You know why?
''cause my brother's havin' a party
Thought you outta know
He's got coeds swimmin nekked
The reason I can't go...

I'm runnin' block
Turn the lights down low
Runnin' block
Don't want know one to know
That I tried to drink her skinny but she's still about 215
Sometimes you got to bow up
And take one for the team.

Now bow up boys

When we got back to the motel
I kicked up my feet
And she put me in a headlock
And said snuggle up with me.
My buddy finished early
And when he walked through the door
I was layin' there half nekked
She had me pinned down to the floor.

Son I can't believe you caught me
With this big ole jelly roll
You can laugh at me tomorrow
You can't ever tell a soul

That I'm runnin' block
Turn the lights down low
Runnin' block
Don't want know one to know
That I tried to drink her skinny but she's still about 215
Sometimes you got to bow up
And take one for the team.
