Thief of Hearts

She's the devil with eyeliner - wearin' fancy leather boots
Ain't nobody lookin' finer - when it's time to cut loose
If there's a cowboy in sight - he'll be askin' for more
She'll be havin' fun tonight - out on that old dance floor
Chorus 1:
When she swings her hips
takes a few dips
and when the music starts
she's the thief of hearts
She's the center of attention - that other women hate
when they catch their guys a lookin' - now that can seal their fate
The prettiest gal in town - she can steal a man away
When the guys come around - well it's time for her to play
Chorus 2:
When she swings them hips
takes a few dips
Sashay across the floor
just like she's done before
Wearin' those form fittin' jeans
she fits every man's dreams
and when the music starts
she's the - thief of hearts
She's the devil in disguise - with thirsty blue eyes
when it's time to sit down - see all the boys cry
Swings those hips
Take a few dips
She gonna sashay across the floor
All the boys come around
and when the music starts - she's the thief of hearts
