Some Things Just Don't Change

Written By: John Green

Bubba was the king of the playground
With his big yellow Tonka truck
Kickin’ up clouds of brown dust
Pullin’ out all the toys that got stuck

Now Bubba still rules the highway
In a big yellow four-by-four
He lives in that mile-high Chevy
Banks his money at the auto parts store

(chorus)
There’s just some things that never ever change
History repeats itself again
Ain’t it kind of funny
Ain’t it kind of strange
The years go by but some things just don’t change

Susie was everyone’s dream girl
A real hometown beauty queen
Left a trail of broken hearts behind her
Wed the captain of the football team

Now Susie’s still dealin’ in heartbreak
Onto marriage number five
She’s still makin’ heads turn
Got the best looks money can buy

(chorus)
There’s just some things that never ever change
History repeats itself again
Ain’t it kind of funny
Ain’t it kind of strange
The years go by but some things just don’t change

Ever since I met my baby
We’ve been livin’ out our dreams
Best friends ever since second grade
Man and wife at just nineteen

Now she still drives me crazy
When I see the love in her eyes
She still melts when I kiss her
Just like that very first time

(ending chorus)
There’s just some things that never ever change
History repeats itself again
Ain’t it kind of funny
Ain’t it kind of strange
The years go by but some things just don’t change
Yeah I’m so glad that some things just don’t change
Just don’t change

YOU AIN'T COOKIN' COUNTRY ANYMORE

YOU AIN’T COOKIN' COUNTRY ANYMORE
Lyrics by John Green

When we first met, I can’t forget
You cooked up collard greens
I knew right then, deep within
You were the one for me

The second time, you blew my mind
With tasty black-eyed peas
Your pecan pie sure showed me why
I had to say “Honey marry me, please.”

(chorus)
But you ain’t cookin' country anymore
Things sure ain’t the way they were before
Are you tryin’ to run me out the door
You ain’t cookin' country anymore

The day we wed, we all fed
On hick’ry barbecue
Our first year was blissful dear
With all the biscuits I could chew

I see now, when we moved to town
You changed to suit your friends
The day you looked at that French cookbook
Was the beginning of the end

(chorus)
‘Cause you ain’t cookin' country anymore
Things sure ain’t the way they were before
Are you tryin’ to run me out the door
You ain’t cookin' country anymore

(bridge)
This culinary craziness
Will be the death of me
Our dog won’t touch the scraps no more
Honey, can’t you see

(final chorus)
You ain’t cookin' country anymore
Things sure ain’t the way they were before
Are you tryin’ to run me out the door
‘Cause you ain’t cookin' country
You ain’t cookin' country
You ain’t cookin' country, anymore
