Collin Raye - My Kind of Girl Lyrics

 

When I saw you buying Cosmo and a Hot Rod magazine

I said to myself now there's a girl for me

And when I asked you to go for a ride

You stole my heart when you said if I can drive

I said how 'bout some music, you said, you got any Merle?

That's when I knew you were my kind of girl

 

And when we started talking I could not believe my ears

You said you were a Braves fan even through the rotten years

You quoted William Faulkner and Martin Luther King

You said your favourite movie star would always be James Dean

And when we went to dinner you wore blue jeans with your pearls

That's when I knew you were my kind of girl

[Hook]

Yeah you march to the beat of a different drum

The funny thing is that I hear the same one

We both like to color outside of the lines

We're peas in a pod, girl we're two of a kind

 

[Hook]

 

I said I think I love you, you said what's not to love

I thought about a kiss but I wasn't quick enough

I guess while I was thinking you were reading my mind

Cause you wrapped your arms around me and you pressed your lips to mine

You sent my head spinning like a Tilt-a-Whirl

That's when I knew you were my kind of girl

 

You sent my head spinning like a Tilt-a-Whirl

That's when I knew you were my kind of girl

My kind, my kind of girl

My kind of girl

My kind, my kind of girl

You're my kind of girl

My kind, my kind of girl

My kind of girl

My kind, my kind of girl
