What Was I Thinking

Fanny was a beauty from Berlin Township
Her daddy was a old order Amish bishop
I think he even was a scribe for the Budget
What was I thinking?
 
She snuck out one night from the Sunday night meetin'
Met me at the barn where the horses were feedin'
We jumped in my buggy, took off for Mt Eaton
What was I thinking?
 
Oh I knew there'd be a score to pay
That crossed my mind a little too late
 
I was thinking bout a pretty little blonde haired Amish girl sitting in the buggy by me
I was thinking bout ice cream down at the Dairy Queen
Thinking what the night might be
Oh I knew what I was feeling
What was I thinking?
 
Down the county line road we went a-trottin' past her farm home
Her daddy came a-tearin' out the lane like a cyclone
I keep forgettin' now but Amish have cell phones
What was I thinking?
 
Far up the road through a field of corn shocks
Dodging in and out like a drunken red fox
Down the road I see the blue lights of the town cops
What was I thinking?
 
Oh I knew there'd be a score to pay
That crossed my mind a little too late
 
I was thinking bout a pretty little blonde haired Amish girl sitting in the buggy by me
I was thinking bout ice cream down at the Dairy Queen
Thinking what the night might be
Oh I knew what I was feeling
What was I thinking?
 
Out the other side across the road to a friend's place
Played a game of carrom and off like a horse race
Hit the Dairy Queen first, strawberry milkshake
What was I thinking?
 
Bout a quarter past ten he (pair laned) me for sneakin'
Her daddy's on the porch with the preacher and the deacon
He raised up his lantern, I could see he was freaking
What was I thinking?
 
Oh what was I thinking?
What was I thinking?
 
And he grabbed the reins from my hand
Slapped the horse and we were gone again
 
And I was thinking bout a pretty little blonde haired Amish girl sitting in the buggy by me
I was thinking bout ice cream down at the Dairy Queen
Thinking what the night might be
Oh I knew what I was feeling
Oh I knew what I was feeling
What I didn't think of
Oh what would that be?
I'm in trouble now

I'm unsure of the phrase in parenthesis if someone could confirm. Other corrections welcome.
