classy girls lyrics – the lumineers

cl*ssy girls

well she was standing in the bar
i said, “h*llo, how do you do?”
she handed me a beer with a kangaroo.

she spoke of places i had never been
that she had traveled to
and we slowed danced along to faster tunes

i made her laugh, i made a p*ss, i showed her my half dollar ring
she said, “that’s pretty cool,
but cl*ssy girls don’t kiss in bars, you fool”

so later on the crowd calmed down
and i believe it was as if
something drew me closer to her lips

so picture my surprise when i had tried to lean in for a kiss
and she just smiled and turned her head down

i asked her, “why?” and she replied,
“it was nothing i was doing nothing wrong, its just what it is”
oh, cl*ssy girls don’t kiss in bars like this

no, cl*ssy girls don’t kiss in bars
boys will break their backs and hearts
but its alright, the hardest part is through
