Joe Geppi and Stanfield Major

Story

I wrote this with Joe Geppi in 1999 while I was attending Las Vegas Songwriter's Association workshops. The lyrics are based on a lyric enttitled When the Boys Go Bad currently in the "Stanfield's Weird, Quirky, Oddball Lyrics" section of my lyric catalog. We ended up with a very different version of more or less the same idea. 

 

 

 

Lyrics

 You Don't Know Boys

 

Verse 1:

My dad was a young man once

so I guess he'd know

how many hearts get lost

in the afterglow

Now I'm all grown up

but I'm still his sugar and spice,

man, does he get nervous

when the boys look at me twice (he says)

 

Chorus 1:

You don't know boys the way I do

They'll take your heart for a ride

With a twinkle in their eyes

Steal your love by surprise

It could happen to you

You don't know boys the way I do

 

Verse 2:

He knows I'm a nice girl now

pure and poised

but he's afraid my dreams

are filled with bad bad boys

Mama tried to tell him

I'm smart enough to choose

but every time I date

I hear the same old news (he says)

 

Repeat Chorus 1

 

Bridge:

My daddy's words ring in my head

but I remember what my Mama said (she said)

 

Chorus 2:

You don't know your dad the way I do

He took my heart for a ride

With a twinkle in his eye

Stole my love by surprise

It could happen to you

You don't know your dad the way I do

 

Tag:

Hope it happens to you.
