  • It ain't New York City
    And it ain't L.A.
    We ain't got no rooftop bars
    Like they do on Broadway

    It's just a little town square middle of nowhere
    Ain't even big enough to be a map dot
    We ain't got a lot but we sure do a lot
    With the little bit that we got

    We got a little something, something we can throw on ice
    Find us somewhere that we can drink it while the moon's up high
    With your girl and your boys by the fire making noise
    In a field on a Friday night
    We got some George Strait songs that we turn up loud
    Living it up 'til the sun comes back around
    Who said there's nothing to do, who said there's nothing to do
    Who said there's nothing to do in this nothing to do town

    Yeah our way of living, no it ain't complicated
    Don't knock it 'til you try it, yeah you might not hate it
    Around here we work and we play, cuss and we pray
    And at the end of a long hard day

    We got a little something, something we can throw on ice
    Find us somewhere that we can drink it while the moon's up high
    With your girl and your boys by the fire making noise
    In a field on a Friday night
    We got some Brooks and Dunn songs that we turn up loud
    Living it up til the sun comes back around
    Who said there's nothing to do, who said there's nothing to do
    Who said there's nothing to do in this nothing to do town

    It's just a little town square middle of nowhere
    Ain't even big enough to be a map dot
    We ain't got a lot but we sure do a lot
    With the little bit that we got

    We got a little something, something we can throw on ice
    Find us somewhere that we can drink it while the moon's up high
    With your girl and your boys by the fire making noise
    In a field on a Friday night
    We got some Tim McGraw songs that we turn up loud
    Living it up til the sun comes back around
    Who said there's nothing to do, who said there's nothing to do
    Who said there's nothing to do in this nothing to do town
    My little nothing to do town
