Just Put A Girl In It

I forgot to tell y'all this. When Drew got back from his mission trip and was still trying to convince me why he should have a girlfriend, we were in the car and talking about it and this song came on the radio. It is by Brooks and Dunn called Just Put a Girl in it.

You can buy you a brand new truck
Chrome it all out, jack it way up
You can build you a house up high on a hill
With a pool and a pond and a view to kill
You can make all the money in sight
But you aint livin the good life

Til you put a girl in it
You aint got nothin
What's it all worth
Without a little lovin
Put a girl in it
Some huggin and some kissin
If you're world's got somethin missin
Just put a girl in it

You can buy a boat and a shiny set of skis
Have some fun in the sun, float around in the breeze
You can lay out on a blanket by the lake
Drink a cold beer, polish off another day
Kick on back and watch the sky turn red
A sunset aint a sunset

Til you put a girl in it
You aint got nothin
What's it all worth
Without a little lovin
Put a girl in it
Some huggin and some kissin
If you're world's got somethin missin
Just put a girl in it

You can write you a country song
The DJ wont put it on
They wont dance or sing along

Til you put a girl in it
You aint got nothin
What's it all worth
Without a little lovin
Put a girl in it
Some huggin and some kissin
If you're world's got somethin missin
Just put a girl in it

If you're ridin in your truck
Put a girl in it

If you're gonna have a party
Put a girl in it

If you wanna live the good life
Better put a gir-r-rl in it

In the middle, Drew said, "See Mom, everyone agrees. I should just put a girl in it." It was so funny. We laughed so hard. He has a quick wit that way and it defused a serious conversation. I thank God that we could end the conversation laughing and having fun. Plus, I told him, the song is true--God made it that way. When He saw man He knew something was missing so "He put a girl in it!" I got to tell Drew that God made him to want to put a girl in it. We just need to be patient and wait till he was a bit older. But one day, God willing, he will be able to "put a girl in it."

Hi, I came across your blog through Lelia's.

I have a teenage daughter in the throws of breaking up with her boyfriend and let me tell you living with her at the moment is NO fun at all!

Tell Drew that "putting a girl in it" brings up a whole lot of issues he never imagined! Teenage girls sure are high maintenance!

LOL CUTE!! I love this post.

Also, I second hisprincess comment! I have a teen girl and she has been from one side to the other of a boyfriend/dating relationship...the highs and the lows. The highs were exhausting and the lows were like a 9.5 on the richtor scale of drama. Unmedicated childbirth is easier than parenting a dating teen girl! (I wonder if it's the same for dating boys?).
