Lyrics

Hayseed Girl

Written By: Kelly Pardekooper

Hayseed girl, a country queen of the likes you’ve never seen
Hayseed girl, kissin’ cousins, you gotta love ‘em
She’ll tear your heart to pieces, and leave you crying on the ground

She’ll take you down, to the river, and lay you down on sheets of linen
You won’t shower, she won’t care, she lets the ribbons fall down from her hair
Then tears your heart to pieces, and leaves you crying on the ground

Hayseed girl, a country queen of the likes you’ve never seen
Hayseed girl, kissin’ cousins, you gotta love ‘em
She’ll tear your heart to pieces, and leave you crying on the ground

Drown in Alcohol

Written By: Kelly Pardekooper

You stumble right into the beat
Leave us there shuffling our feet
Staring down at the floor
You got no claim at all
None that you’d recall
Drown in alcohol

Move it over, to some other part of the mind
I’ll try

Living on the outside in
It’s a helluva way begin
Leaning hard on new friends
But you got no claim at all
Not that you’d recall
Drown in alcohol

It’s all over, you can’t hold her anymore
Where’s the door?

So stumble right into the street
Scrape those bended knees
Tell me I’m a tease
But you got no claim at all
None that you’d recall
Drown in alcohol

Wild Love

Written By: Kelly Pardekooper

Ain’t nothing special about it
Go on and shout it when you walk in the room
Don’t need to worry ‘bout your mama
No your papa he won’t be home soon

Now the room is spinning
You’re beginning to see the night turn to day
The sweat it runs together
Yeah he’s thinking you might give it away.

Ain’t nothing to it so girl just do it now…

You think you’re something special
God’s gift when your hips start to sway
You feel him sliding over
A spinning collection on promises made

Ain’t nothin to it so girl just do it now
Right now

All right
Okay
Tonight
Don’t wait
Wild love
Wild love
Wild love
Wild love…..
