"Ticks" as written by and Kelley/paisley Lovelace....
Every time you take a sip
In this smoky atmosphere
You press that bottle to your lips
And I wish I was your beer
In the small there of your back
Your jeans are playing peekaboo
I'd like to see the other half
Of your butterfly tattoo

Hey, that gives me an idea
Let's get out of this bar
Drive out into the country
And find a place to park

'Cause I'd like to see you out in the moonlight
I'd like to kiss you way back in the sticks
I'd like to walk you through a field of wildflowers
And I'd like to check you for ticks

I know the perfect little path
Out in these woods I used to hunt
Don't worry babe, I've got your back
And I've also got your front
Now, I'd hate to waste a night like this
I'll keep you safe you wait and see
The only thing allowed to crawl all over you
When we get there is me

You know every guy in here tonight
Would like to take you home
But I've got way more class than them
Babe, that ain't what I want

'Cause I'd like to see you out in the moonlight
I'd like to kiss you way back in the sticks
I'd like to walk you through a field of wildflowers
And I'd like to check you for ticks

You never know where one might be
There's lots of places that are hard to reach
I gotcha

I'd like to see you out in the moonlight
I'd like to kiss you, baby, way back in the sticks
I'd like to walk you through a field of wildflowers
And I'd like to check you for ticks
Oh, I'd sure like to check you for ticks

    General CommentAnd the lyrics are actually really dirty, but said in a very clean way

    I love the bit where he says that every guy wants to take you home but I've got way more class that that... kissing in the moonlight and walking among the wildflowers (pretty romantic so far)and then he'll help her out by checking for ticks and especially as she cant always reach
