  • You ought to shoot that last one down now
    Pass on that one more round now
    Closing in onto 8:30
    Better get home, gotta hit it hard early
    Yup
    You got a pretty girl looking at you there
    Giving you that what you gonna do stare
    Saying, 'look, gonna call it a night now'
    But you're all wrapped up in the right now

    Yup
    Gonna buy her a drink, no time to think
    Yup
    You try to say that you can't stay
    Her smile is saying 'why can't you?'
    Gonna wind up staying there, ain't you?
    Yup

    There you go about to drop another 50
    Another shot of that fireball whiskey
    Tomorrow this night's gonna owe me
    No reason to go home lonely

    Yup
    Gonna buy her a drink, no time to think
    Yup
    You try to say that you can't stay
    Her smile is saying 'why can't you?'
    Gonna wind up staying there, ain't you?
    Yup

    Round and round, you got her now dancing with you
    In a a minute she's gonna lean in and kiss you
    Yup

    Yup
    Gonna buy her a drink, no time to think
    Yup
    You try to say that you can't stay
    Her smile is saying 'why can't you?'
    Gonna wind up staying there, ain't you?
    Yup
    Yup

    Man, you ain't going nowhere, are you?
