Good Girl Lyrics

Hey good girl, with your head in the clouds, i bet you i can tell you what you're thinking about. You see a good boy, gonna give you the world, but he's gonna leave you crying with your heart in the dirt. His lips are dripping honey but he'll...

    This song is about Carrie trying to advise a "good girl" against dating her ex. She actually sounds quite bitter and harsh; she's not exactly breaking it to the other girl gently. Lines such as "His lips are dripping honey but he'll sting you like a bee. So lock up all your lovin' oh and throw away the key" and "It's just a matter of time. 'till you find, He's no good, girl, no good for you, you better get to getting on you''re goodbye shoes and go, go, go, baby listen to me he's low, low, low." Prove how brutal she's being.

    The first few times I heard this I thought that this was all to this song... However, after seeing the video I got another idea.

    Maybe Carrie is actually the "good girl" and a part of her is telling herself what Carrie doesn't really want to acknowledge and is ignoring. That he's no good.

    The lines "Why? Why you gotta be so blind? Won't you open up your eyes" convinces me of it. (:
    Hope I helped.... I love this song!

    The meaning I got from this song was a little different. I think this is her talking to her past self. As though she almost wishes she could have gone back and warned herself that falling in love with this guy would turn out to be "no good" for her.
    It's as if she's scolding herself for being 'blind' to everything he would eventually do to her. And she can see it now that she thinks back on it.
    That's my theory anyways! Great song! :)

    I think in the song, Carrie is in love with a guy who she knows is bad for her and she trying to get herself to realize he is no good.

    I think it's a sequel to Before He Cheats, another Carrie Underwood song. In the song, Carrie Underwood gets revenge on her ex for cheating,saying that if he's learned his lesson, he won't cheat again. However, I think Good Girl is her thinking, "well, that won't be enough". She somehow might have seen signs of him cheating on his current girlfriend, so she was trying to warn his gf before she had to go through the same pain that she did.

    I honestly am not a big fan of Country Music. And this song is obviously Pop Rock
    There’s no country in this song. If you think otherwise then you’re delusional. And I know she said she’s a huge fan of Rock. I hope she does less Country and more Pop Rock. Maybe make an all Rock album.

    i like this song. But i wouldn't say it's Country or has any Country to it. It's just Pop Rock. And honestly, i'm not a big country fan. I would prefer that she does more pop rock since she has mentioned that she loves rock music.

    They like to say they wrote this. The music is theirs. The words are me. Poseidon. I mistook her manager for an older boyfriend. I tryed to break her up even though she was a stranger to me. I tryed to be friendly to her but forceful. He was close by. So I had to be quick. She signed. Go figure. Blown away.was my next attempt at showing her an example of bad choices. She came back many times. Alone. Those love songs are me trying to impress her. She was bored. Then I told her a story about my aunt and a funeral. Two black caddies.

    Why does this girl be blind because this guy is a dirty cheat. Carrie is singing about how this guy is bad and the girl isn't listening.

    Carrie Underwood is telling herself about this guy that she knows is bad but one part of her thinks he'll change but the part of the Girl who says he's no good for you is right and the other part girl is just tiring to change something that will never change.She may be looking at a relationship after it's over and done with and see what I would tell myself now if i could.

    I think carrie was trying to tell the girl that the girl was foggy and just picked some boy who at the moment was really sweet and cared about the girl. Carries trying to tell the girl that he is really mean and jst leaves her in the dust to go a different road. the girl also wants a fairytale wedding to be married to the boy.the part where it says his lips are drooping honey but he'll sting you like a bee is really nice and then stabs her in the back. the girl cant let him go and
    carries just trying to tell her to let it go.

    I think that she is trying to tell herself that he is not good for her. Take this for example:
    So, Alex, a "bad boy" has just asked the perfect sweet Aly out. She secrectly likes him but she is trying to convince herself that he is bad so she can reject him.
    So its pretty much like the devil/angel bit they use on tv as a comedy bit (one on each shoulder) and the bad half is telling her, in a not so nice way, that he is "low,low,low."
    -Hope this helped <3

    a good girl meets a good boy and she finds out he is no good for her. And then she leaves him behind and they split
