“Boy Like Me” Aaron Goodvin Lyrics

Why can’t a boy like me
And a girl like you
Find a little spot under neon lights?
Get a little get to know you better Friday night
Talkin’ where ya from
And what’s your mama like?
Dance a little closer than we thought we might
Start us a fire that lasts the rest of our life

‘Cause a boy like me’s only thinkin’ one thing
Gotta get you way out where the crickets sing
Down a two-lane road till you hear a big bang
Then before you know it, I’ll pop a diamond ring
On a girl like you, battin’ ’em baby blues
Lookin’ at me, sayin’ you want one or two
And after a few good years wakin’ up to
A boy like me and a girl like you
With a boy like me and a girl like you

She’s gonna have your smile
He’s gonna have my wild ways
Of being too forward in the heat of the moment
Sounds just like me, don’t he?

Yeah, a boy like me’s only thinkin’ one thing
Gotta get you way out where the crickets sing
Down a two-lane road till you hear a big bang
Then before you know it, I’ll pop a diamond ring
On a girl like you, battin’ ’em baby blues
Lookin’ at me, sayin’ you want one or two
And after a few good years wakin’ up to
A boy like me and a girl like you
With a boy like me and a girl like you

I’ve never seen my whole life flash before my eyes

That’s why you got a boy like me, only thinkin’ one thing
Gotta get you way out where the crickets sing
Down a two-lane road till you hear a big bang
Then before you know it, I’ll pop a diamond ring
On a girl like you, battin’ ’em baby blues
Lookin’ at me, sayin’ you want one or two
And after a few good years wakin’ up to
After a few good years, we’ll be wakin’ up to
A boy like me and a girl like you
With a boy like me and a girl like you

A boy like me
And a girl like you
