Rod StewartCut Across Shorty

Now a country boy named Shorty And a city boy named Dan Had to prove who could run the fastest To wed Miss Lucy's hand Now Dan had all the money And he also had the looks But Shorty musta had that something boys That can't be found in books Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across That's what Miss Lucy said Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across You know it's you that I want to wed Wait a minute Now Dan had been in training About a week before the race He made up his mind old Shorty Would end in second place You know Dan with his long legs flying He left Shorty far behind Shorty heard him holler out Miss Lucy that you'll soon be mine Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across That's what Miss Lucy said Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across You know it's you that I want to wed But Shorty wasn't worried There was a smile upon his face 'Cause old Lucy had fixed the race And just like that old story About the turtle and the hare, you know that thing When Danny crossed over the finish line He found Shorty waiting there Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across That's what Miss Lucy said Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across You know it's you that I want to wed It's you that I want to wed, no no And oh Lord it's you I want to wed It's you that I want to wed
