Verse 1

I can see just what you like about her-

Beauty, confidence, love for adventure.

I'm different, a plain Jane, a simple lass.

I ain't got no body like a wine glass.

I ain't got no bigger sweeter dream than

Seeing a smile on the face of my man.

Chorus

I'm the kind of girl who'll be waiting up at home,

In the middle of the night, staring at the phone,

With a little lamp lighting up her perfect little world.

There's nothing wrong with being this kind of small town girl.

Verse 2

She won't settle for love, she wants the best,

Wants to be somebody, ace every test.

I ain't got no use for money or fame,

Got no use for accolades to my name.

Don't need to search the world to find peace, see,

Everything I need is right here with me.

Chorus

I'm the kind of girl who'll be waiting up at home,

In the middle of the night, staring at the phone,

With a little lamp lighting up her perfect little world.

There's nothing wrong with being this kind of small town girl.

Bridge

There's nothing wrong with climbing mountains, so to speak.

But when she's standing on top of the highest peak,

She'll look down and see

She's got nobody

To give her a smile.

She's burned all bridges, meanwhile,

The girl she called timid

Is laughing with each heartbeat.

Chorus

I'm the kind of girl who'll be waiting up at home,

In the middle of the night, staring at the phone,

With a little lamp lighting up her perfect little world.

There's nothing wrong with being this kind of small town girl.
