Bobby had sweet Brittany-Lou
She had Bobby, and she had another few
And the way they all remember
Bobby also had a temper
They were happy all because he never knew

Bobby worked sailin’ from the docks
He made a little money not a lot
And all the boys would listen
When was Bobby goin fishin?
And he’d bring back Brittany what he got

So tell me what would you do
If it happened to you?
If you met yourself a Brittany-Lou?

Always said his real home was on the waves
And Brittany thought her secrets were safe
But the rumors got around
It was just a fishin’ town
Lucky Bobby had to sail that day

“What would happen?” Was on everybody’s mind
They all knew was just a matter of time
“No, she never shoulda let ‘em
Oh that Bobby’s gonna get ‘em
When he hears about her partners in crime!”

So tell me what would you do
If it happened to you?
If you met yourself a Brittany-Lou?

Days passed, no it wouldn’t be long
But the clouds and the sea got strong
And with the hours gettin’ late
The guilty prayed about their fate
And Bobby and his boat stayed gone

It sure was a real tragedy
Bobby lyin’ on the bottom of the sea
But an angel up above
’Cause he died in love
And Brittany’s lyin’ next to me

And now I’m goin’ through Hell
’Cause she’s still got a few
And I got myself a Brittany-Lou

So tell me what would you do
If it happened to you?
If you met yourself a Brittany-Lou?
