What I’m Into

Verse 1:

Some guys like to pick girls up at a bar

Have one stands, won’t give away their hearts

That ain’t what I’m into

Some guys like to check out pretty young things

Only care about a fling, not thinkin’ ‘bout wedding rings

That ain’t what I’m into

They don’t treat girls with respect

But not all guys are like that

Buying her chocolates and flowers

And dancin’ for hours

Singin’ “I wanna love somebody like you:”

That’s what I’m into

Drivin’ around town

Playin’ Def Leppard real loud

Doin’ anything she wants to

That’s what I’m into

Verse 2:

Some guys don’t care about meeting her mama

Think they can just do anything they wanna

That ain’t what I’m into

Some guys just buy girls a drink

The girls roll their eyes when the guys give ‘em a wink

That ain’t what I’m into

They’re tired of the same old lines

That guys every time



Maybe I’m a bit old-fashioned

But I don’t care if they’re laughin’

Chorus (x2):

It's a good one J.D.!
Can definitely imagine this one playing on the radio.

I like that you keep coming back to:
That ain’t what I’m into
hammer it home!

In the chorus, these two lines struck me as being different in that they don't obviously revolve around her
Drivin’ around town
Playin’ Def Leppard real loud

you could possibly amend them like:
Drivin' her around town
She loves Def Leppard real loud

And in the last line of v2 I think you've just missed a word and it's meant to be:
That guys try every time
or something like that.

But overall it's a good one!

I really like this one. Great rhyming throughout. Only little thing I see is change the line some guys just buy girls a drink to some guys just buy drinks. I don’t feel it necessary as in the next line girls are mentioned. Probably one of my favorites that you have written. I was that first guy for many years, probably why we write such different styles.😂
