BOY DON’T GET THE GIRL
By Sara Morgan (lyrics/music/arrangement)
©2018 Sara Morgan

VERSE
He’s sixteen, a dozen roses in his hand
Knocks on the front door, locks eyes with her old man
Says have her home by ten and you might see her again

Sittin’ on the front porch around nine forty-five
And all he can think about is kissin’ her goodnight
Finally made up his mind
But she turned when he tried

CHORUS
Yeah sometimes a boy don’t get the girl
Don’t work out like he planned
Yeah the front door slams and he’s left standin’
All alone in this old world

VERSE
Felt like a man lookin’ for a ring all by himself
Never thought he’d ever have to want someone else
Came home, turned on the light
Never seen her cry
No note goodbye
Just a spare key on a shelf

CHORUS
Oh sometimes a boy don’t get the girl
Don’t work out like he planned
Yeah the front door slams and he’s left standin’
All alone in this old world

Thought he’d done it all just right, a gentleman polite
But sometimes
There ain’t no reason why
The boy don’t get the girl

BRIDGE
Well I know you think you love that girl
But someday you’ll find out waitin’ on the right one
Ain’t the worst thing in the world

Sometimes a boy don’t get the girl
So he can turn into a man and
Find the woman of his dreams
Learn how to do it all just right
Standin’ side by side and
Finally understand why , sometimes
It ain’t the end of the world
When the boy don’t get the girl
When the boy don’t get the girl

REFRAIN
He’s forty-five tellin’ his little girl “be nice to this young man”
Doorbell rings, he’s sixteen, a dozen roses in his hands.
