"Only Prettier" as written by Miranda Lambert and Natalie Hemby....
Well I've been saved by the grace of southern charm
I got a mouth like a sailor and yours is more like a Hallmark card
If you wanna pick a fight well I'm gonna have to say goodnight
I don't have to be hateful, I can just say bless your heart

And even though I don't belong with your high life friends
Doesn't mean we don't get together and try to make amends
It's easier can't you see lets agree to just disagree
We don't have to like each other but its sure fun to pretend

So lets shake hands and reach across those party lines
You got your friends just like I got mine
We might think a little differently
But we got a lot in common you will see
We're just like you, only prettier

Everybody says you gotta know your enemies
Even if they only weigh a hundred pounds and stand five foot three
If you just smile and behave you could always get your way
It's a universal plan that'll get you where you can in all societies

So lets shake hands and reach across those party lines
You got your friends just like I got mine
We might think a little differently
But we got a lot in common you will see
We're just like you, only prettier

Lets shake hands and reach across those party lines
You got your friends just like I got mine
We might think a little differently
But we got a lot in common you will see
We're just like you, only prettier

Well I'll keep drinkin' and you'll keep gettin' skinnier
Hey I'm just like you only prettier
She says just like you only prettier

    Song MeaningI LOVE this song!

    to me it has two meanings- its about southern girls and how they're "prettier" but it has a deeper meaning as well- most southern people are republicans and the majority of democrats are not southern. She's singing about the two different parties "so lets shake hands and reach across those party lines" - its a great and cute way to disguise something so political. love her!

    My InterpretationIt's about having to get along with someone that you absolutely hate and the whole time you two are talking to one another you are insulting one another but the insults are kind of hidden, or passive.
