Sure....country...that's mostly what I do....up-tempo for sure with a dance groove.

Wham Bam © 2008 Janice Hopkins

There in that little diner she looked pretty sweet
Sort of innocent… not my usual type
I like the ones you can’t take to meet Mama
The ones that wear their low cut jeans so tight

But she came in the bar, when I was feelin’ weak
She’d turned into the kind that I like
Thought I’d been hasty , as that girl led me on
Man, she looked hot beneath the neon lights

I wasn’t ready…didn’t have a chance
Soon she had me wrapped up with one lovin’ glance

I said….

Wham Bam…Yeah, I’m your man
How strong do you think I am
Should have warned me ‘bout that first kiss
Knocked me off my feet…I’m usually stronger than this
My guard went down….don’t understand
It was Wham Bam…..I’m your man

She had all my attention…and I knew it for sure
Asked me to dance…let her lead from the start
I was a lamb on a list set for slaughter
She wouldn’t stop until she had my heart

Held me so close til I got carried away
When the band stopped playin’, this is all I could say

Repeat Chorus:

Bridge:

Now my Mama loves her and I do too
I come home at night and there’s things she wants to do
Just one glance and she carries me away
She acts all sweet and innocent…but she wants to play

Then it’s…..

Repeat Chorus:

HiDee Mich Sissy!

Hmmm..there's an ol Rock Tune with the Classic Line "Wham-Bam Thankyou-Mam" sung in it that I thought this'n'd maybe mirror, but naah..it's FAR-Kinder..& More-Country!

Cute Storyline, Fun Chorus, Spicy Bridge, Happy Ending..what more can a Man ask for!
"KUDOS" & Good Luck, Sis!
Big Brotherly-Hugs,
BBStan

Hey Fla. Bro,

Thank ya' for the kind kudos....yup, country....that's what I do.(at least, that's what I'm usually shootin' for) Now if I can get my extremely talented, handsome, intelligent, eager to please music guy off his duff in Bay City....we may get to hear some music to this....LOL. Jeff....I'm joking with you.

Glad this works for you, Stan. I sooooo appreciate you always stopping by.

It is really cute and would make for a fun uptempo one!! One line didn't feel quite right to me:

She'd turned into the kind that I like

I know what you mean but it just felt clunky to me, though you are probably hearing the melody.

Hi Bren,

Thanks for giving this a read...yeah, I'll look at that line...sings fine in my head, but you never know...could be others wouldn't hear that right either. I appreciate you pointing that out. What's new with you?

Have a great day...

Hi Janice,

I've been reading a lot of your lyrics, and this is one of my favorites. I can definitely feel the "country" in this song (toby keith / trace atkins style?). I love your work.

I'm primarily a country writer as well, but have written in alot of other genres as well, but country is my most comfortable zone.

So glad that we know your name. Happy to lend a hand anytime.
