Kind of Girl You Bring Home to Momby Jesse Daniel EdwardsASCAPIf mama was here tonightI think she would like youI'm not just saying that,I really doMaybe it's the way you put her whole family at ease,so easilyOr the way you put down that whiskeyShe don't drink too muchAnd she don't drink too littleWhen she rides with the guysShe fine sitting in the middleShe's always rightBut she knows when she's wrongShe's the kind of girl you'd bring home to momIf all my fading photographs came to life tonightI think they'd approve,of me and youYou're never gonna have to meet my ghosts face to faceI promised you,I promise youShe don’t dream too big and and she don't dream too littleWhen she hides the smile in her eyes we all guess the riddleShe's always around but you notice when she's goneShe's the kind of girl you'd bring home to momYou don't want it too bad and you don't need it too littleWhen you ride by my side it puts us both in the middleYou're always on my rightno matter what road I’m on,You're the kind of girl I'd bring home to momShe's the kind of girl you’d bring home to mom
