Here they come, she's on his arm
Showin' off her attributes, turnin' on the charm
He thinks he'll be happy, but he's messed up his life
All because he had to have that young trophy wife
1st Verse
Boy, was I surprised when they showed up at my door
He had a brand new twenty two, but he'd lost his forty four
Now, I'm not talkin' firearms, no one would make that trade
But she was quite the looker, yeah, she was quite a babe
2nd Verse
She had these two long legs that went way down to the ground
And she just flashed a smile, then she slowly turned around
And I could tell he thought he'd scored one hell of a deal
But it was plain for all to see, some parts of her weren't real
repeat chorus
Now his ex-wife hates him, and his kids hate him too
And every month that alimony check comes due
3rd Verse
She's younger than his daughter, he doesn't seem to mind
She's dippin' in his wallet, he's gettin' way behind
She's ruined all his credit, and there'll be hell to pay
He's sacrificed tomorrow for a good time today
repeat chorus
