  • Hey you were standing by the screen door slamming
    Rather clear what's taking place
    You were holding on to Louie, he was packing, he was heavy
    That plastic handle just about to break

    Well then you picked up Chloe
    She knew y'all were going
    She started barking like a tank
    I was shocked and I was joking,
    But I would not be longing
    'Cause I got Jim and Jack and Hank

    Take your string bikinis, your apple martinis
    Take what's left there in the bank
    Take your flat iron and your curlers
    Your sparkling water and that damn perfume I never liked
    Take your black Mercedes all that stuff for ladies
    To me you're just a total blank,
    Go on and leave me baby
    I don't need you, I got
    Jim and Jack and Hank

    Well now you left screaming and your tires screeching
    That little dog right in your lap
    I have become a little sad and I called up my old dad
    He said son you just woke me from my nap
    I told him you had left me
    He said now son don't you hate me
    You know exactly what I think
    You know you're better off
    You can fish and you can golf
    You still got Jim and Jack and Hank

    Take your string bikinis, your apple martinis
    Take what's left there in the bank
    Take your flat iron and your curlers
    Your sparkling water and that damn perfume I never liked
    Take your black Mercedes all that stuff for ladies
    To me you're just a total blank,
    Go on and leave me baby
    I don't need you, I got
    Jim and Jack and Hank

    That's right

    So I got out the whiskey
    I began to listen to songs out in my truck you couldn't crank
    I started feeling empty, then again it hit me
    I've got Jim and Jack and Hank

    Take your string bikinis, your apple martinis
    Take what's left there in the bank
    Take your flat iron and your curlers
    Your sparkling water and that damn perfume I never liked
    Take your black Mercedes all that stuff for ladies
    To me you're just a total blank,
    Go on and leave me baby
    I don't need you, I got
    Jim and Jack and Hank
    Yeh now go on and leave me baby
    I don't need you
    I got Jim and Jack and Hank

    That's right, you go ahead, I'll be a okay
    'Cause I got Jose, Captain Morgan
    Not to mention old George and Tammy, Loretta, Merle, Willie Nelson, Big John Cash
    How about old Jimmy Buffet bring him in there when that's sun shining,
    George Strait an old friend
    Can't forget Hank Jr and all his rowdy friends
    I'm gonna clean out the whole closet, baby
    Ah yeah
