Cool Song: Ashton Shepherd - "Look It Up"

Here's what I have learned through time; do not mess with a country girl especially if she can sing or write songs.  Queens and princesses of Country music - from Taylor Swift to Carrie Underwood, Shania Twain, Miranda Lambert or Reba McEntire, have all put a guy on blast in their songs one way or the other. And boy do these women know how to turn a phrase and get the message across!

While boys seem to always apologise or sing about their pickup trucks, the girls are quick to tell them that they do not need them. Carrie Underwood angrily sang in "Before He Cheats": 
That I dug my key into the side of his
pretty little souped up 4 wheel drive,
carved my name into his leather seats...
I took a Louisville slugger to both headlights,
slashed a hole in all 4 tires...
Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats.
Little Taylor is always sweet with her breakup songs but you still get the message like in "Should Have Said No"; 
You should've said no, you should've gone home
You should've thought twice before you let it all go
You should've know that word, bout what you did with her
Would get back to me...
And I should've been there, in the back of your mind
I shouldn't be asking myself why
You shouldn't be begging for forgiveness at my feet...
You should've said no, baby and you might still have me
And then there is Ashton Shepherd who appears on the David Gresham and SABC3's latest compilation, Countrywide. Ashton's single "Look It Up" is cut number 15 on the albumn. When I heard the track I chuckled and wondered what the poor guy she is referring to must have done. 

Anyway here's the track so ladies take some pointers and fellas watch who you mess with. Lol! 


Ashton Shepherd - Look It Up



The word is faithful, look it up 
It don't mean sneakin' around 
Behind my back like you ain't gettin' enough 
How 'bout forever, just look it up 
It means through thick and thin and 
Pitchin' in even when the times get tough 

The word is easy, look it up 
And you'll see a picture of that piece of trash 
Ridin' 'round in your pickup truck 
Let's try liar, just look it up 
But you'll need boots to wade through all the bull 
You tell me when you come home drunk 
It's just like you to be so clueless 
Cause you never thought I'd do this 

I said go, goodbye, get lost, get out, get gone 
The word is over 
Look it up 

You said you're sober, look it up 
It's right next to hell is freezin' over, flyin' pigs, 
And all that stuff 
And how bout baby, look it up 
It's what you call me and it's how you act 
Every time I call your bluff 
It's just like you to keep denyin' 
Save your whinin' and your cryin' 

I said go, goodbye, get lost, get out, get gone 
The word is over 
Look it up 

The word's forgiveness, look it up 
It's what Jesus has in store for you 
But I don't no matter what 
Quit your beggin' and your prayin' 
Can't you hear what I've been sayin'? 

I said go, goodbye, get lost, get out, get gone 
The word is over 
Look it up 


Just look it up, look it up
