Lyrics

Honky Tonk Ballerina

You’ve known her forever, you’ve seen her dance before
She flirts with the guys as she struts across the floor
The Honky Tonk Ballerina, need I say more
the ballerina machina is on the prowl for sure

She likes to make the cowboys fidget and swoon
There’s one coming soon to your favorite saloon
The Honky Tonk Ballerina will be singing your tune
But if you sing along, it could cost you the moon

She dances ‘till closing and sleeps ‘till noon,
knows how to use a man but can’t operate a broom
She lives for free, doesn’t need her own wheels,
she’s always in love ‘cause she loves what she steals

Just feed her some drinks and some quarters for pool
You won’t be looking at balls when she’s shooting her cue
The Honky Tonk Ballerina, is also playing you
and if you take her home, you’ll be behind the 8 ball too

She’s light on her feet even wearing those boots
but they’re not just for strutting or looking cute
The Honky Tonk Ballerina is stepping out tonight
& she’ll be stomping on you, if you’re not thinking right

She dances ‘till closing and sleeps ‘till noon,
knows how to use a man but can’t operate a broom
She lives for free, doesn’t need her own wheels,
she’s always in love ‘cause she loves what she steals

So when you’re out huntin’ for love or for play
be careful what you wish, you might be the prey
Of the ballerina machina who’s performing today
the Honky Tonk Ballerina is Honky Tonkin’ your way
the Honky Tonk Ballerina is dancing U.S.A
