Well I went down to the Grundy County auction
where I saw something I just had to have.
My mind told me I should proceed with caution,
but my heart said, "go ahead and make a bid on that."

And I said 'hey, pretty lady, won't you gimme a sign?
I'd give anything to make you mine, all mine,
I'd do your bidding and be at your beck and call.'
Yeah I've never seen anyone lookin' so fine,
man, I gotta have her, she's a one of a kind.
I'm goin' once, goin' twice.
I'm sold! to the lady in the second row,
she's an eight, she's a nine, she's a ten I know.
She's got ruby red lips, blond hair, blue eyes,
and I'm about to bid my heart goodbye.

Well the auctioneer was goin' about a mile a minute.
He was taking bids and calling them out loud.
And I guess I was really gettin' in it,
'cause I just shouted out above the crowd.

And I said 'hey, pretty lady, won't you gimme a sign?
I'd give anything to make you mine, all mine,
I'd do your bidding and be at your beck and call.'
Yeah I've never seen anyone lookin' so fine,
man, I gotta have her, she's a one of a kind.
I'm goin' once, goin' twice.
I'm sold! to the lady in the long black dress.
Well she won my heart, it was no contest,
with her ruby red lips, blond hair, blue eyes,
and I'm about to bid my heart goodbye.

Well, we found love on the auction block that day and I hauled her heart away.
Now we still love to laugh about the way we met that day.

When I said 'hey, pretty lady, won't you gimme a sign?
I'd give anything to make you mine, all mine,
I'd do your bidding and be at your beck and call.'
Yeah I've never seen anyone lookin' so fine,
man, I gotta have her, she's a one of a kind.
I'm goin' once, goin' twice.
I'm sold! to the lady in the second row,
she's an eight, she's a nine, she's a ten I know.
She's got ruby red lips, blond hair, blue eyes,
and I'm about to bid my heart goodbye.
