Let's make fun of cheeezy country lyrics

I don't mean the cool or classic things like badass Johnny Cash, I mean the newer stuff that is all the same and oh so corny. I don't even know most of the artists, just things I've heard, like these-

One Boy, One girl
Queen of my Double wide trailer
Put a ring around the finger I'm wrapped around
This is Austin
Butterfly Kisses
something about a carrot top who can barely walk with a sippee cup of milk and how his front porch view is better looking inside than out..?

Let's make a list, what makes you go

There's a pretty bad one by Toby Keith, something about "he's got my car, he's got my house, there's the kids calling him pa, there's my dog in my backyard... everything's there but me"


Something goofy like that. It's a bad, country-fied version of Sting's "I'm So Happy I Can't Stop Crying".

Here are the lyrics:

turn left at the old hotel
i know this boulevard much too well
it hasn't changed since i been gone
oh this used to be my way home
they paved a road through the neighborhood
i guess the county finally fixed it good
it was gettin' rough
someone finally complained enough
fight the tears back with a smile
stop and look for a little while
oh it's plain to see
the only thing missin' is me

that's my house and that's my car
that's my dog in my backyard
there's the window to the room
where she lays her pretty head
i planted that tree out by the fence
not long after we moved in
there's my kids and that's my wife
who's that man runnin' my life?

if i pulled in would it cause a scene?
they're not really expecting me
those kids have been through hell
i hear they've adjusted well
turn around in the neighbor's drive
i'd be hard to recognize in this pickup truck
it's just an old fix-er-up
drive away one more time
lotta things runnin' through my mind
i guess the less things change
the more they never seem the same

that's my house and that's my car
that's my dog in my backyard
there's the window to the room
where she lays her pretty head
i planted that tree out by the fence
not long after we moved in
there's my kids and that's my wife
who's that man runnin' my life?

yeah, that's my house and that's my car
that's my dog in my backyard
there's the window to the room
where she lays her pretty head
i planted that tree out by the fence
not long after we moved in
there's my kids and that's my wife
who's that man runnin' my life?

(who's that man)
who's that man runnin' my life?
(who's that man)
(who's that man)
who's that man runnin' my life?
(who's that man)
(who's that man)
who's that man runnin' my life



OK, it's kind of sad now that I look at it, but still...

She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy - Kenny Chesney

(That's the title of the song. I don't know the actual lyrics.)

I think I'll look this up.

Kenny Chesney She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy lyrics
Plowing these fields in the hot summer sun
Over by the gate lordy here she comes
With a basket full of chicken and a big cold jug of sweet tea
I make a little room and she climbs on up
Open up a throttle and stir a little dust
Just look at her face she ain't a foolin me

She thinks my tractor's sexy
It really turns her on
She's always staring at me
While I'm chuggin along
She likes the way it's pullin' while we're tillin' up the land
She's even kind of crazy 'bout my farmer's tan
She's the only one who really understands what gets me
She thinks my tractor's sexy

We ride back and forth until we run out of light
Take it to the barn put it up for the night
Climb up in the loft sit and talk with the radio on
She said she's got a dream and I asked what it is
She wants a little farm and a yard full of kids
One more teeny weeny ride before I take her home

She thinks my tractor's sexy
It really turns her on
She's always staring at me
While I'm chuggin along
She likes the way it's pullin' while we're tillin' up the land
She's even kind of crazy 'bout my farmer's tan
She's the only one who really understands what gets me
She thinks my tractor's sexy

Well she ain't into cars or pick up trucks
But if it runs like a Deere man her eyes light up

She thinks my tractor's....

She thinks my tractor's sexy
It really turns her on
She's always staring at me
While I'm chuggin along
She likes the way it's pullin' while we're tillin' up the land
She's even kind of crazy 'bout my farmer's tan
She's the only one who really understands what gets me
She thinks my tractor's sexy

She thinks my tractor's sexy
She thinks my tractor's sexy

Oh, my...the lyrics to the "sexy tractor" song are really, really bad.

When I was in college my sophomore year roomate was into country music - and not good country music either. She knew I didn't like it, and she usually didn't play it when I was around, but if I happened to walk into the room when she was playing it I wouldn't ask her to change the station because I didn't want to act like a dictator. Anyway, it was kind of hard to listen to that stuff and resist the temptation to laugh my ass off. I remember one day I happened to have my head in the closet looking for something and I heard this one song line...I wish I could remember exactly what it was - something along the lines of "I'll still love you when you're old and don't have any teeth" - and I started laughing hysterically.

Oh, god..."She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy" is so freakin' dumb, I have to agree. Why would anyone think a tractor was sexy? .

Also noticed the mention of "Butterfly Kisses"-argh, yes-okay, let's turn on the waterworks even more, shall we? I mean, sad songs can be good and all...but this one just overdoes it.

Also, "Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue"-can we say, "arrogant"?

My dad's working at a country station right now, so I get to hear a lot of cruddy country songs...I don't know the title of this song, but one I can think of right now is this song that starts out with something like, "I've got a Rice Krispie bar in the microwave".

Um...good for you...?

Angela
