(rick bowles/robert byrne)

The first thing i did when you said goodbye
Was sit myself down and have a real good cry
The next thing i did was put my red dress on
And go downtown dancing 'till the break of dawn

A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do
And now i gotta get to gettin' over you
Too bad i gotta do it, baby, someone new
But a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do

Fancy meeting you at our stomping ground
Sorry if you caught me painting the town
Guess i shoulda stayed home with your memory
Baby don't take it personally

A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do
And now i gotta get to gettin' over you
Too bad i gotta do it, baby, someone new
But a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do

Give me a call some time real soon
And remind me to remember to forget about you, oh yeah!

A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do
And now i gotta get to gettin' over you
Too bad i gotta do it with someone new
But a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do

A girl's gotta do it
Yeah, a girl's gotta do it
Too bad i gotta do it with someone new
Too bad i gotta do it with someone new
But a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do
