Runnin’ Block Lyrics

by Toby Keith

My buddy said his girlfriend is as pretty as can be
He said help a brother out tonight and come double date with me
She's gotta a baby sister and they're headed into town
They're lookin' for a good time, they're fun to be around

I said what do she look like? He scratched his head and stated
"She was a home comin' football queen before she graduated
We'll wine and dine and do 'em fine, really double date 'em
Then take 'em back to the motel Six and try and seperate 'em

They showed up in a pick up truck
They were right on time
His was kinda hefty
Not half as big as mine

I'm runnin' block, turn the lights down low
Runnin' block, don't want no one to know
That I tried to drink her skinny but she's still about 215
Sometimes you've got to bow up, just take one for the team

She cleaned her plate at dinner then she ate what's left of mine
Then she wolfed down a big cheesecake as I drank all the wine
She strolled out to the patio for an after dinner cig
I said, "Bro you've done 'er this time and gonna owe me big

You know why? 'Cuz my brother's havin' a party
Thought you outta know
He's got co-eds swimmin' naked
Reason I can't go

'Cuz I'm runnin' block, turn the lights down low
Runnin' block, so don't want no one to know
That I tried to drink her skinny but she's still about 215
Sometimes you've got to bow up, and just take one for the team
Now bow up boys

When we got back to the motel, I kicked up my feet
And she put me in a headlock and said, Snuggle up with me
My buddy finished early when he walked through the door
I was laying there half naked, she had be pinned down to the floor

Son, I can't believe you caught me
This big old jelly roll
You'll laugh at me tomorrow
You can't ever tell a so

I'm runnin' block, turn the lights down low
Runnin' block, don't want no one to know
That I tried to drink her skinny but she's still about 215
Sometimes you've got to bow up, and just take one for the team
