Lyrics

VERSE 1
I picked her up at Rosa's Tap and Bar
I took her home to my place in my car
But morning came and I had to stare
What was that woman doing there?
I think we might have taken this too far

VERSE 2
She washed the drapes and floor, she moved the couch
She had her woman stuff all through the house
She cleaned the fridge, she cleared the sink
All I could do was stand and blink
She waltzed right in and tried to cash me out

CHORUS
Stop the music, not so fast
This ain't your house
That ain't your car
This ain't your chance
Giddyup and end this dance
This ain't what you been thinkin'
'Cause this ain't no romance

VERSE 3
My brother has a wife and kids (And all the crap that goes with that)
And I promised myself I would never live like that (And buy a cat)
Well maybe when I'm old and gray
I'll look back and regret this day
But right now I'm goin' back to Rosa's Tap

CHORUS
Stop the music, not so fast
This ain't your house
That ain't your car
This ain't your chance
Time to get up, time to get out
And end this dance, this dance

BRIDGE
It's not time to macarena
It's not Sadie Hawkins day
It's not this Virginian reelin'
It's the boot time to scoot away, hey (Boogie baby)

CHORUS
Stop the music, not so fast
This ain't your house
That ain't your car
This ain't your chance
Giddyup and end this dance
Let's get your act together
You'd be big in France
Let's make your reservations in advance
This ain't what you been thinkin'
No this ain't no romance
This ain't no romance
