She’s a wild child

There’s nothing mild about her

It’s all hot sauce and chili peppers

She drives in the spurs of her dad’s old pickup truck.


Carrying her wild side everywhere she goes

It just keeps showing in plain sight

She’s full of sass and style

Every once in a while

She gets a little calmer

But she’s wild all the same.


She’s got a fiery temper

Every challenge tempts her

Driving everyone around her crazy

She talks in mazes

Some wonder why in blazes she is that way.


She’s a wild child

Smooth as glass

And bold as brass

She’s full of spice

Never stops to think twice.
