Lyrics

Honky Tonk Girl

Written By: Trina McLarty

Mama used to sing to me
the best of the all time greats
We sang all the songs you can’t forget
Like Patsy Cline and Mrs. Wynett
My mama made sure I knew them well
Like Dolly, Brenda and Mandrell
These ladies they taught me how to sing
And showed me how to dream

We’re goin crazy
In a 9 to 5 world
and I’m not Sorry
as if country wasn’t cool
Woman to Woman,
It’s mixed up world
You know life is better
As a honky tonk girl

My mama don’t sing much anymore
She leaves it now to me
I sing the songs without her
I still hear her harmony
I know I’ve got so much to learn
And I’m doing what I can
gonna give this dream a whirl
be my mama’s honky tonk girl.

We’re goin crazy
In a 9 to 5 world
and I’m not Sorry
as if country wasn’t cool
Woman to Woman,
It’s mixed up world
You know life is better
As a honky tonk girl

Repeat Chorus

I said life is better…..
As a honky tonk girl

Stand

Written By: Trina McLarty

Since you’ve been gone
I’ve felt so all alone
I can’t believe you’ve left me
To stand here on my own
Wipe the tears from my eyes
go find something to do
If I don’t I’ll just keep crying
Going nowhere without you

so tired of people saying
It’s gonna be alright
I’ll live without your touch
Your smile, and your goodnight
But I don’t give a damn
What they say to do
Cause it’s me not them left standing
Going crazy without you

So I’m gonna stand
Like I’m not breaking at all
I’ll just pretend
I can walk and not fall
let the tears come down
While I learn to be strong
Lord lend me the strength
Cause I’m barely holding on

If life were like the movies,
I guess I’d be just fine
I’d learn to play my part
How to read my lines
Let me put some make up on
this old heartbroke face of mine
and you’ll never see the teardrops
I’ve tried desperately to hide

Repeat Chorus

I pray I’ll be alright, each day’s a brand new start…..I just can’t convince my heart…..

Repeat Chorus

Primetime Romance

Written By: Trina McLarty

You watch Monday night football while I cook up your food
I make you miss kickoff and you come all unglued
It’s always on TV fore bed each night
Then you act all confused when I put up a fight
Well if you’ve got time between first and goal,
I’ll tell you something that you ought to know

I need some primetime romance, for nighttime lovin
I don’t watch no football, and I don’t play many sports
I don’t understand half of what they say
But I’ll wear that jersey and those little tight shorts
Gimme some primetime romance and nighttime lovin

don’t know if you’ve heard over the TV at all
your fingers are twitchin on that remote control
I’m standing here hopin what I said got through
Prayin I’ve scored a touchdown or two
An overtime game on sports channel news
home again alone with those Monday night blues

Chorus

Chorus

Gimme some primetime romance, some primetime romance, gimme some primetime romance and nighttime lovin.
