Lyrics

Nature Girl

Written By: Greg Klein

My gals a runway girl she walks with class
She likes to walk it slow she likes to walk it fast
She likes to persevere she likes the view from the top
She likes to tease sometimes but she knows when to stop
My baby loves her lovin she don’t complain
But sometimes when we’re done she wants her lovin again

My gals a nature girl I’ve got a park pass
I’ll take my shoes off stroll around in her grass
She dig a pony show She dig a day at the beach
She set some lofty goals but they’re ones we can reach
My baby loves her lovin she don’t complain
But sometimes when we’re done she wants her lovin again

My gal is flexible she’s not new to the scene
Just because she’s dressed up don’t make it Halloween
I get the private show with some popcorn to pop
I’ll turn the lights real low she turns the heat way up
My baby loves her lovin she don’t complain
But sometimes when we’re done she wants her lovin again

My gal is licorice she’s an acquired taste
She’s one part sweet one part you can’t place
She likes to tear it up and she’s graceful too
She eats her vegetables and she likes meat to boot
My baby loves her lovin she don’t complain
But sometimes when we’re done she wants her lovin again
