Song Description

A play on the phrase "skirting the danger." He wants her, but is timid. Got the courage somehow. She fell in love with him. All is well.

Story Behind the Song

This about my best friend's daughter, who is lovely to say the least. He once told me that her girlfriends called her "legs." I understood why. She and I are very good friends. I officiated her wedding, and I am an honorary parent to her first child.


When the danger is drivin' too fast, you can always slow down
And when you might get hit from behind, you can always speed up
Don't swim alone in deep waters because you just might drown
But all bets are off when the subject is love

('Cause) (That) It's hard to skirt the danger when the danger is the skirt
There aren't many men alive who think it hurts to flirt
Even when you end up face-first in the dirt
It's hard to skirt the danger when the danger is the skirt

I didn't know it then, but her girlfriends called her "legs"
All I knew was her mid-thigh skirt had left me mesmerized
She was turnin' 'em down, left and right, and I'm not the type to beg
But I threw caution to the wind 'cause I've always realized


So I summoned all my courage and put my right foot first
I gave it everything I had; she would know I'd done my best
Whatever I said and did, in love she became immersed
You can't get where you want to go, sometimes, without a little stress

Repeat CHORUS (2x)

Yes, it's hard to skirt the danger when the danger is the skirt
