Hey pretty girl, won't you look my way
Love's in the air tonight
Bet you could make this ol' boy stay
Hey pretty girl, won't you look my way

Hey pretty girl, can I have this dance
And the next one after that
Gonna make your mind there's a real good chance
Hey pretty girl, can I have this dance

Hey pretty girl, it feels so right
Just like it's meant to be
All wrapped up in my arms so tight
Hey pretty girl, it feels so right

Life's a lonely, winding ride
Better have the right one by your side
Happiness don't drag its feet
Time moves faster than anything

Hey pretty girl, wanna take you home
My momma's gonna love you
She'll make me sleep on the couch, I know
But hey pretty girl, wanna take you home

Hey pretty girl, let's build some dreams
A house on a piece of land
Plant some roots and some apple trees
Hey pretty girl, let's build some dreams

Life's a lonely, winding ride
Better have the right one by your side
Happiness don't drag its feet
Time moves faster than anything

Hey pretty girl, you did so good
Our baby's got your eyes
And a fighter's heart like I knew she would
Hey pretty girl, you did so good

Hey pretty girl, when I see the light
When it's my time to go
I'm gonna thank the Lord for a real good life
Pretty little girl and a beautiful wife

Song facts

"'Hey Pretty Girl' for me is where I think every man and woman desires to be at some point in their life. I am not there and I don't really desire to be there now. I have other things to get out of my system and a lot of road ahead of me and I need to be focused on just that. But I'm not going to fool myself. At some point you are going to desire to have that person that knows you inside out and cares about you.

I tried to paint the best picture of what that really was. You want someone that you're going to want to take home and show your friends and family. The reference to planting roots in the apple trees is a metaphor for planting roots together. It's all about starting a life together. At some point, I'm gonna want kids and I tried to draw on that and what I wanted that to be like. I'm not there right now, but there will come a time for that. Everybody at some point wants to feel that special thing for somebody else and wants to have it reciprocated." - Kip Moore
