You were not content with me when I was like I used to be
I was too old fashion too simple and too plain
And so you took this country girl taught me all about the world
Yes you're the one that taught me how to swing
I used to never drink or smoke I'd even blushed your dirty jokes
I never wanted to take part in all those wordly games
But you dressed me up in sexy clothes took me where the swingers go
Yes you're the one that taught me how to swing
But you don't want me swingin' now but you're the one that taught me how
It was you that wanted me to change
I'm only what you've made of me your mistake was changin' me
Yes you're the one that taught me how to swing

You want me like I was before but I'm not like that anymore
This plain old simple country girl won't never be the same
So don't expect me to go back cause it's a bit too late to back
And you're the one that taught me how to swing
But you don't want me swingin' now...
Yes you're the one that taught me how to swing taught me how to swing
