Title: A Girl Like You

​Artist: Easton Corbin

Economic Concepts: Scarcity; value

Details: Economics and scarcity and synonymous.  Economics tackles the tough question of how society deals with scarcity.  In this song, there is an abundance of many things such as cold beer, bars, and music.  As a result of their abundance, little value is placed on them.  A common saying is that something is "a dime a dozen", implying that it has little to no value.  "Got lots of bars around this town.  They cold beer, yeah, and they got Crown.  Got neon light in the windowpane…Got loud guitars a little out of tune."  Another thing in abundance in these bars are women who are all quite similar.  However, when a women is found that is unique and has all the best qualities, this is rare which makes
the women sought after and cherished.  Contrasting to the above saying, a women with all the right qualities is "one in a million", which signifies scarcity and value.  "You've got that beautiful, born with it kind of thing.  It comes so natural, no baby don't ever change…Kick it on Broadway or kick back on the couch…Shotgun a beer, just sip champagne.  Yeah, there's only one, ain't room for two.  There ain't another girl like you."         
 

Lyrics
Got lots of bars around this town
They got cold beer, yeah, and they got Crown
Got neon light in the windowpane
Got lots of guys thinkin’ they got game
Got loud guitars a little out of tune
But they ain’t got a girl like you
Naw, they don’t

They play lots of songs on the radio
'Bout them good ole’ country girls that we all know
Long tan legs and cutoff jeans
Yeah, just shakin’ that sugar every country boy’s dream
I’ve heard them all at least a time or two
Ain’t none ‘bout a girl like you, you know that’s true

You’ve got that beautiful born with it kind of thing
It comes so natural, no baby don’t ever change
And I wonder when I see the smile on your face
Baby, what did I do to ever get a girl like you
A girl like you

You can dress it on up or you can just hang out
Kick it on Broadway or kick back on the couch
You can dance on a bar, you can dance in the rain
Shotgun a beer, just sip champagne
Yeah, there’s only one, ain’t room for two
There ain’t another girl like you, another girl like you

You’ve got that beautiful born with it kind of thing
It comes so natural, no baby don’t ever change
And I wonder when I see the smile on your face
Baby, what did I do to ever get a girl like you
A girl like you

Baby, what did I do to get a girl like you
A girl like you don’t come along but once in a lifetime, better hang on
I can’t find one thing wrong, I could just go on and on and on

You’ve got that beautiful born with it kind of thing
It comes so natural, no baby don’t ever change
And I wonder when I see the smile on your face
Baby, what did I do to ever get a girl like you
A girl like you (a girl like you)
Baby, what did I do to get a girl like you

I could sail the ocean blue, and never find, never find a girl like you
