The Avett Brothers – Women Like You lyrics

I thought they didn’t make women like you anymore
Kindness in spades, patience galore
Elegant ways, but ready for war
I thought they didn’t make women like you anymore

You’re modest enough to not strut your stuff
But confident enough to know ya got it
You don’t need someone’s validations
Couldn’t care less who’s offering

I thought they didn’t make women like you anymore
All of these princesses are such a bore
You’re a queen and you’re the girl next door
I thought they didn’t make women like you anymore

You have the perseverance and follow through
To build your career if you choose
You understand compromise, jealousy too
Taught me about blessings and baby blues

Oh, until I met you, I searched this place
For someone with class, conviction, and grace
I thought it impossible, it couldn’t be discovered
Like a car full of pretty girls that don’t hate each other

You know how men think, we rarely move past
Appraising a woman’s appearance
Well, judge as we may, we dig our own graves
Still, I think it’s alright to say this
Oh, you look good in a T-shirt, All Stars, and jeans
Look good all done up in makeup and bling
Look good in pajamas and sharp tailored suits
Look good in dresses and cowboy boots

I thought they didn’t make women like you anymore
Passion for days, compassion galore
I am amazed and grateful to
God and your mother for women like you

You, you
You
Mmm
