I know I'm not your type You've said a thousand times but I can't help if I can't get you off my mind So how about if we hang out And see where this will go Because I must be honest, you had me at hell no If I didn't know better, I'd say you looked upset But I can tell you want me and you're playing hard to get Your flushed complexion gives your face an angel glow We're perfect for each other and you had me at hell no Hell no, I see it in your eyes Hell no, this is all just a disguise Your angry words ringing in my ear But it's just your sweet voice I hear Hell no, hell no, hell no Your words for a moment, they cut me kind of deep But my heart still gets a thrill when you call me a creep I know you soon will see how far our love can go You can't deny our chemistry, you had me at hell no Hell no, baby I'm in love with you Hell no, pretty sure you love me too I know we had a rocky start But it takes more to break my heart Hell no, hell no We're gonna be best friends if you'll just hear me out My love for you is strong, of that there is no doubt I wish you wouldn't run away, it makes me feel like you're afraid I knew this wasn't gonna be a good day When the judge told me to stay a hundred yards away Hell no, couldn't we have one date at least Hell no, before you involve the police This restraining order just won't help For me to reinvent myself And court dates just get in the way We'll never find the time to date I can't keep up this big charade So this is all I have to say Hell no, hell no, hell no

It's my own darn fault, I fall in love too quickly And for a time I seemed to find some comfort in some whiskey Lately I've been waking with a pounding in my head In place of drinking Maker's I'll try something else instead Gonna make some changes Try something new I drank a lot of whiskey trying to forget you But the whiskey didn't do it You're where you've always been So I'm gonna make some changes and now I'm trying gin There's just no getting around you driving me to drink so A change of scenery's the solution here I think I've always liked club soda and I've always liked limes Stay one step in front of my brain, keep up with the times Gonna make some changes Try something new I drank a lot of whiskey trying to forget you But the whiskey didn't do it You're where you've always been So I'm gonna make some changes and now I'm trying gin We'll be together someday and I'm willing to wait In the meantime I'll just sit here and self-medicate Gonna make some changes Try something new I drank a lot of whiskey trying to forget you But the whiskey didn't do it You're where you've always been So I'm gonna make some changes and now I'm trying gin

Thought Illinois was a city place 'til I moved out of town Soon as you leave Chicago it's just corn the whole way down Surprisingly the land of Lincoln's got a southern voice There's no place more country than Illinois We're inbred mangy country folk, of that there is no doubt The attorney general's dad is the speaker of the house Being someone's brother is the way you get employed There's no place more country than Illnois Illinois, Illinois, oh, you're my pride and joy Where the Cubbies haven't won Since my great-granddad was a boy We may not have the cowboy boots But we've sure got the down-home roots There's no place more country than Illinois Thought I'd have a culture shock when I moved to Tennessee But pretty soon I realized everyone there's just like me We've even got a Chick-fil-A, not like we had a choice There's no place more country than Illinois Illinois, Illinois, oh, you're my pride and joy Where the Cubbies haven't won Since my great-granddad was a boy We may not have the cowboy boots But we've sure got the down-home roots There's no place more country than Illinois I ain't trying to hurt no feelings I ain't trying to raise no hell But is there anything more country Than two governors in jail Illinois, Illinois, oh, you're my pride and joy Where the Cubbies haven't won Since my great-granddad was a boy We may not have the cowboy boots But we've sure got the down-home roots There's no place more country than Illinois

There've been a lot of country songs about fishing But not a lot of country songs about fish So I thought I'd write one, 'cause I am one At least that's how I felt when you reeled me in You dropped your line into my peaceful waters Turned my whole world upside down How am I supposed to just keep swimming With this dadgum hook stuck in my mouth I'm a humble fish in love, can't believe this feeling's real I'm a bluegill or a sunfish and I'm head over eels But you never felt the same, fishing's just your kind of game You said hook, line, and sinker, I hardly know her You're an angler and a sportsman And I am just a helpless northern pike You mounted me, made me into a trophy When I'd even rather be a trophy wife I'm a humble fish in love, can't believe this feeling's real I'm a bluegill or a sunfish and I'm head over eels But you never felt the same, fishing's just your kind of game You said hook, line, and sinker, I hardly know her At least you threw me back, you tried to make it right This hole in my mouth will haunt me the rest of my life I'm a humble fish in love, can't believe this feeling's real I'm a bluegill or a sunfish and I'm head over eels But you never felt the same, fishing's just your kind of game You said hook, line, and sinker, I hardly know her
