Don't look at me, don't touch me
Keep your mind straight ahead
Don't get no funny ideas about me
You'll wish that you were dead

That's what I'm thinking she must be thinking
The girl I spent 53 bucks on last night
She gives me a look from the corner of her eye
I said, "Boy, keep acting right"

How surprised was I
When she leaned over and whispered in my ear

Get a leg up, get a leg over boy
Get a leg up, what's the matter
Are you shy, shy, shy?

I'm pretty good with first impressions
But sometimes I'm not always right
I pulled the car to the shoulder of the road
To see what she had in mind

Want me to spend the night
Hey lover boy you know I will
And my best girlfriend lived down the road
Together we will thrill ya

I'm thinking to myself
I could be lucky Pierre tonight

If I could get a leg up
If I could get a leg over boy
You know I ain't that handsome
But you know I ain't shy, shy, shy

Ah goddamn baby

Rest of the night went on and on
And the moral to this song
Don't go making hasty judgments
Because sometimes they could be wrong

Nothing wrong with a good time
Just keep yourself protected, make a list
You can bet your life that the women don't know
The little girls are acting like this, yeah

So the next time a young one moves up
And she whispers in your ear

Get a leg up
Get a leg over boy
Get a leg up
Now don't you be shy, shy, shy

Now get a leg up
Get a leg over boy
You know I ain't that handsome
But you know I ain't shy, shy, shy

Get a leg up
Get a leg over boy
Get a leg up
Now don't you be shy, shy, shy
