22 and Single
Written by Drew Rice

Well, I?m thirty and married, my life was going just right
Till me and my woman, we had a big fight
She packed my bags and wanted me out of her sight
So I?m 22 and single tonight

Yes I?m 22 and single tonight
And now I?m sitting in this bar all-alone
But there?s this pretty young thing
She?s got me in her sights
Well alright
Cause I?m 22 and single tonight

Well we danced and we talked the night away
And over the music I heard her say
Would you like to go with me back to my place?
Well OK, cause hell I?m 22 and single anyway

Then as we were walking out the door
I thought of the woman whom I adore
And I couldn?t play this game anymore
Cause I?m not 22 or single any more

No I?m not 22 and single anymore
And now I?m riding around all-alone
Because my wife?s in my heart down to the core
No I?m not 22 or single anymore

Well I pull in the driveway; it?s a quarter to four
My wife is waiting for me at our front door
She says I?m sorry and I love you
Girl I love you more
Than before
An d as I hold her I thank the Lord
That I?m not 22 and Single anymore

Well I?m thirty and married and I have a great life
