Lyrics

HOW WE SAY IT IN THE COUNTRY


Grandaddy made me laugh with the way he used to talk
He'd tell me 'bout tricks you couldn't teach an old dog
I'd hear of people getting' all gussied up
Ladies looking finer than a mess of speckled pups

And I would cock my head
Confused as I could be
I asked Grandad just what on earth those silly words all mean

That's how we say it in the country
Can't help how I was raised
I ain't had to explain my words
In a dagum coon's age
You might think my southern speakin' sounds kinda funny
Well sonny, that's how we say it in the country

Grandpappy kicked the bucket, done did bought the farm
He taught this pig to dance, and golly I'll be darned
Now I'm shacked up in the city, can't shake my rural roots
Them phrases stick around, like cow poop on a boot

What made no lick of sense
Is now so clear to me
And somehow Grandpa's silly words became reality

That's how we say it in the country
Can't help how I was raised
I ain't had to explain my words
In a dagum coon's age
You might think my southern speakin' sounds kinda funny
Well sonny, that's how we say it in the country

Livin' a world, people yappin all around
Ears are bleedin' cause it ain't the proper sound
High fluiten words make you look like a fool
and "what up homey" lingo really ain't cool
Get your dog in the fight, see the light,
Get your manners right (right, right)
Hey cant you see, the way its supposed to be
"Thank you, yes sir, yes mam"
That's how we say it in the country
