Engelbert Humperdinck – Honky Tonk World lyrics

There used to be a time when candlelight and wine
Was all that a woman would need
Man, you'll be a winner if you took her out to dinner
Or a movie that she wanted to see

Now the world has turned and it's time you learned
The old ain't working no more
The rules have changed and it's a brand new game
Buddy, if you wanna score

Get off the couch and get out of the house
Long about a Friday night
Shine up your boots, polish up your moves
If you wanna keep her satisfied

You know, a little bump and grind would do it every time
If you want to keep your little girl
Well, you don't stand a chance 'less you take her out to dance
You're living in a honky tonk world

Sooner or later, all you couch potatoes
You're gonna be the lonely ones
If you want good lovin' then you gotta keep up
You better know your Brook's from your Dunn's

And don't even think that your Englebert Humperdinck's
Record's gonna turn her on
Mister, you can bet if you don't know the steps
You're gonna get left at home

Get off the couch, get out of the house
Long about a Friday night
Shine up your boots, polish up your moves
If you wanna keep her satisfied

You know, a little bump and grind would do it every time
If you want to keep your little girl
Well, you don't stand a chance 'less you take her out to dance
'Cause you're living in a honky tonk world

You were cro-magnon, you'd be draggin' your women
By a hair to your cave
You'd be down on one knee reciting them soliloquies
Back in Romeo's day

You'd be kind of nifty if you were in the Fifties
And you had a cool car to drive
But now you past the Nineties so you better shake your hiney
Or you're gonna get left behind

Get off the couch and get out of the house
Long about a Friday night
Shine up your boots, polish up your moves
If you wanna keep her satisfied

You know, a little bump and grind would do it every time
If you want to keep your little girl
Well, you don't stand a chance 'less you take her out to dance
You're living in a honky tonk world

You don't stand a chance 'less you take her out to dance
'Cause we're living in a honky tonk world

Get off the couch and get out of the house
Long about a Friday night
Shine up your boots, polish up your moves
If you wanna keep her satisfied

You know, a little bump and grind would do it every time
If you want to keep your little girl
Well, you don't stand a chance 'less you take her out to dance
You're living in a honky tonk world

You don't stand a chance 'less you take her out to dance
'Cause you're living in a honky tonk world
