DC Talk - That Kinda Girl
(from the album Free At Last)

The other night I met a girl and she looked to be so nice
I asked her for the digits and she didn't think twice
A couple of days later called her up and asked her out
She said "Wit' you?" I said "Wit' me" and then she said "Without a doubt."
I took her to the Garden where I guess they grow the olives
She wore a tighter skirt than any I had seen in college
She said I love to smoke and drink while cursing like a sailor
I asked her where she got her mouth and if she had a tailor
=46inally I walked her to the door to say good night
She said, "I am an apple would you care to take a bite."
Politely I refused and said, "I'm looking for a lady."
So she slapped me in my face and said: "Boy you must be crazy."

She's that kinda girl
Different from the ones before
'Cause I know she loves the Lord
She's that kinda girl
Virtuous in every way
The kinda girl that makes you say,
"I hope she comes my way."

Well I'm looking for a girl who's virtuous
'Cause God laid it on my heart to search for this
So I open up the Word to the book of Proverbs
The 31st chapter tells me all about her
Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain
A woman who fears the Lord, she ain't playin'
Hear what I'm saying 'cause I'm saying it clearly
She's the kinda girl I gots to have near me


Well I'm lookin' into hookin' with a lady
And not a girlie of the worl'y that's shady
But the kinda girl you meet behind the doors of the church
You see, God will bring her to me so I don't have to search
Too hard, I've been scarred by the ones of the past
So put an APB out on the one that'll last
A little longer than a roll in the hay for sure
But a bona fide lady's what I'm praying for

When I finally meet her
I'll know how to treat her
By fulfilling all her needs
Love her and respect her
Cherish her forever
She's the kinda girl for me

[CHORUS w/ this inserted in the middle:]
She's that kinda girl
perfect for each other
There'll never be another for me
