Lyrics To “Boy Like Me” By Aaron Goodvin

Why can’t a boy like me
And a girl like you
Find a little spot under neon lights
Get a little get to know you better Friday night

Talking where ya from
And what’s your momma like
Dance a little closer than we thought we might
Start a survival as the rest of our life

‘Cause a boy like me’s only thinking one thing
Gotta get you way out where the crickets sing
Down a two-lane road till you hear a big bang
Then before you know it I’ll pop a diamond ring
On a girl like you battin’ ’em baby blues
Love can’t have me saying you are one or two
And after a few good years waking up to

A boy like me and a girl like you
With a boy like me and a girl like you

She’s gonna have your smile
He’s gonna have my wild ways
Of being too forward in the heat of the moment
Sounds just like me don’t he?

Yeah, a boy like me’s only thinking one thing
Gotta get you way out where the crickets sing
Down a two-lane road till you hear a big bang
Then before you know it I’ll pop a diamond ring
On a girl like you battin’ ’em baby blues
Love can’t have me saying you are one or two
And after a few good years waking up to

A boy like me and a girl like you
With a boy like me and a girl like you

I’ve never seen my whole life flash before my eyes

That’s why you got a boy like me’s only thinking one thing
Gotta get you way out where the crickets sing
Down a two-lane road till you hear a big bang
Then before you know it I’ll pop a diamond ring
On a girl like you battin’ ’em baby blues
Love can’t have me saying you are one or two
And after a few good years waking up to
After a few good years we’ll be waking up to

A boy like me and a girl like you
With a boy like me and a girl like you
