Barlight Lyrics

Well, when I was young
My momma read me nursery rhymes beside my bed
And though they sounded mighty fine
They made no sense to me

And now that I am all grown up
It seems my nights have changed as such
So I went out and made me up
A nursery rhyme for me

It goes barlight, bar bright
First bar that I see tonight
Wish I may, wish I might
Find someone to hold me tight

Hey diddle diddle, a man with a fiddle
And the girls sing along with the tunes
Just a one more dance 'til you turn off the lights
And you can shut down this saloon

You know, I never understood
How a big ole gal can raise no kids in a shoe
And any old Jack goes jumping a candle
Needs to find something better to do

And a rub a dub dub, three men in a tub
Sure sounds kinda funny to me
So I made up a honky tonk nursery rhyme
And it's the only one I'll sing

It goes barlight, bar bright
First bar that I see tonight
Wish I may, wish I might
Find someone to hold me tight

Hey diddle diddle, a man with a fiddle
And the girls sing along with the tunes
Just a one more dance 'til you turn off the lights
And you can shut down this saloon

I said, "I never understood
How a big ole gal could raise no kids in a shoe
And any old Jack goes jumpin' a candle
Needs to find something better to do"

And a rub a dub dub, three men in a tub
Sure sounds kinda funny to me
So I made up a honky tonk nursery rhyme
And it's the only one I'll sing

It goes barlight, bar bright
First bar that I see tonight
Wish I may, wish I might
Find someone to hold me tight

Hey diddle diddle, a man with a fiddle
And the girls sing along with the tunes
Just a one more dance 'til you turn off the lights
And you can shut down this saloon

I said, "Just a one more dance 'til you turn off the lights
And you can shut down this saloon"
