Last night out of the blue
Driftin' off to the evenin' news
She said "Honey, what would you do
"If you'd have never met me"

I just laughed, said "I don't know,
"But I could take a couple guesses though"
And then tried to dig real deep,
Said, "Darlin', honestly

"I'd do a lot more offshore fishin'
"Probably eat more drive-thru chicken
"Take a few strokes off my golf game
"If I'd a never known your name
"I'd still be drivin' that old green 'Nova
"I probably never would have heard of yoga
"Be a better football fan
"But if I was a single man
"Alone and out there on the loose
"I'd be lookin' for a woman like you"

Well, I could tell that got her attention
So I said, "Oh yeah, I forgot to mention
"I wouldn't trade a single day
"For a hundred years the other way"
She just smiled and rolled her eyes
'Cause she's heard all of my lines
I said, "C'mon on girl, seriously
"If I hadn't been so lucky

"I'd be shootin' pool in my bachelor pad
"Playin' bass in my cover band
"Restockin' up cold Bud Light
"For poker every Tuesday night, yeah
"I'd have a dirtbike in the she'd
"And not one throw pillow on the bed
"I'd keep cash in a coffee can
"But if I was a single man
"Alone and out there on the loose
"I'd be looking for a woman like you"

She knows what a mess I'd be if I didn't have her here
But to be sure, I whispered in her ear

"You know I get sick deep-sea fishin'
"And you make the best fried chicken
"I got a hopeless golf game
"I love the sound of your name
"I might miss that old green 'Nova
"But I love watchin' you do yoga
"I'd take a gold band on my hand
"Over bein' a single man
"'Cause honestly, I don't know what I'd do
"If I'd never met a woman like you"

    This is a once in a decade song. It describes what every woman wants to think about her man and how every man wants to think about his woman. And it does it without nonsensically pretending that men ought to be or want to be like women. What a celebration of life and the joy that the different perspectives that men and women bring. Absolutely brilliant. Lee brice is going to be a very rich man. He deserves it.

    That if he was single he would be able to do so many things that he loves to do with his buddies and he would have a hell of a time, but at the end of the day he would still be searching for that girl, the girl he loves and wouldn't trade for the world

    When i first heard the line "i'd have a dirt bike in the shed, not one throw pillow on the bed! " i knew this was a song i could love. My husband always comments on the pillows and stuffed toys that sit on our bed! And, yet, he tells everyone that he can't imagine his life without me!

    This song of love and happiness. To have a song written about you like this. The first time I heard this song I was in the car with my bf he turned to look at me and started singing it to me. I love him so much and know he loves me too and not just cause of this song or cause he says it. He shows it:)!

    People show up in our lives for a reason. Life would be completely different without them. We would never know the feeling of a wonderful woman who made our life. We would be single but wanting someone like that in our life. We're lucky enough to have those people in our lives. And we need to cherish them!
