    Here's a honky tonk effort. Dug it out of a pile of lyrics I wrote 15-20 years ago.

    A Little Bit Harder To Get

    Well you think you got the spotlight
    Got all the men sweatin in their beer
    You got a way of actin like you love
    All the come on lines you hear
    For a drink you’ll sit and act like you
    Really like the poor foolish guy
    But you're already thinking ‘bout playin
    the next fool standin in line

    (Chorus)
    Little miss queen of the bar
    Don’t you be lookin my way
    Cause I know your kind
    And it’s a game I'm just not gonna play
    I’ll admit I’m looking for love
    But I haven't found it yet
    Cause I kinda like my women
    A little bit harder to get

    (Verse)
    Well you say you just don’t get it
    can’t believe I won’t talk to you
    You tell me that you’re willin to love me
    You like a man who’s no fool
    I don’t want to take that chance you see
    Seen it too many times before
    Drinkin up my hard earned money
    Eyeing the next fool walkin through the door

    (Chorus)
    Little Miss queen of the bar
    Don’t you be lookin my way
    Cause I know your kind
    And it’s a game I'm just not gonna play
    I’ll admit I’m looking for love
    But I haven't found it yet
    Cause I kinda like my women
    A little bit harder to get


    (Bridge)
    There was a time she’d be what I’m looking for
    All the guys are takin bets on who’s gonna score
    But something just tells me to let it ride
    Don’t give her a chance to walk on my pride


    (Chorus)
    Little miss queen of the bar
    Don’t you be lookin my way
    Cause I know your kind
    And it’s a game I'm just not gonna play
    I’ll admit I’m looking for love
    But I haven't found it yet
    Cause I kinda like my women
    A little bit harder to get

    Comes off as slut-shaming to me, but there might be some gals who like that kind of theme. I guess it depends on the hang-out a person chooses. I'm not overly concerned with purity though so other people's mileage may vary. Just my two cents.
