about

A stripped-stripped, mid-tempo r'n b groover, just in time for summer!

lyrics

She knows these streets I've walked alone
And when I call her on the telephone
Her number's still the same

She don't go in much for technology
She's got an old-school philosophy
Regarding user names

From K through 12 we shared the halls
Of every school, these same brick walls
And I was dreaming of her even 'fore I'd seen her face

We marched in all the same parades
Across the tracks and down Broadway
Her hair done up in pigtails and lace

One minute I'm on the monkey bars
Then I'm picking her up in my daddy's car
And, Lord, my life has never been the same
Yeah...

She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
My hometown girl
She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
My hometown girl

She tells me what I need to hear
And I trust her with my deepest fears
And she's never, she's never steered me wrong

My happiness rests in her hands
Y'see I only wanna be her man
And I've waited, I've waited so long

She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
My hometown girl
She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
My hometown girl

In her eyes I see the years
All the laughter, all the tears
Mr. Parker said, don't bother with 'em, no, but I'm all in
Yeah...

She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
My hometown girl
She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
My hometown girl
