“I’ll Name the Dogs” Lyrics

Girl, it’s high time, I tell ya
No more messin’ around
Time to lay these cards on the table
And just throw it on out
I’m talkin’ you and me with the same street name
Same last name, same everything
It’s a real thing, a how I feel thing
So I’mma go on and take a swing
You find the spot and I’ll find the money
You be the pretty and I’ll be the funny
You plant the flowers, I’ll plant the kisses
Baby, let’s get right down to business
I’ll hang the pictures, you hang the stars
You pick the paint, I’ll pick a guitar
Sing you a song out there with the crickets and the frogs
You name the babies and I’ll name the dogs, yeah
You can park your car in the driveway
I’ll park my truck in the grass
I’ll put a little swing on the front porch
If you put a little tea in my glass
Watch the sun set from a gravel road
Kiss me in the kitchen on your tippy toes
Still lovin’ on you when the rooster crows
Watching way more than the garden grow
You find the spot and I’ll find the money
You be the pretty and I’ll be the funny
You plant the flowers, I’ll plant the kisses
Baby, let’s get right down to business
I’ll hang the pictures, you hang the stars
You pick the paint, I’ll pick a guitar
Sing you a song out there with the crickets and the frogs
You name the babies and I’ll name the dogs
Yeah, laying next to you every night
Sounds like a damn good life
You find the spot and I’ll find the money
You be the pretty and I’ll be the funny
You plant the flowers, I’ll plant the kisses
Baby, let’s get right down to business
I’ll hang the pictures, you hang the stars
You pick the paint, I’ll pick a guitar
Sing you a song out there with the crickets and the frogs
You name the babies and I’ll name the dogs
Yeah, I’ll name the dogs
You name the babies and I’ll name the dogs
Yeah, I’ll name the dogs

Way to go, Blake! Be sure to share this update with other fans of the star.
