  • So assuming this weekend there's a part of me that's thinkin of coming up to join you
    You know I sure wouldn't want to.. Ruin all your chances on your one night stand romances
    Doing tequila shots, I always loved you but it was never enough

    And while your licking salt off of each other
    Know that I'll be wishing
    Throwing this all my over shoulder

    Hoping for sores to form upon your lips
    So the alcohol burns warm with every sip
    Are you burning now?
    Dial 911 emergency, to come let you down

    And when you wake tomorrow morning with a hang over from hell
    Don't bother calling me, there's no need for you to kiss and tell
    Because tonight will be my night, I'm calling all my friends
    The boys are going out tonight

    The potion in our bottles it will be singing to me sleep
    The world at the bottom, it's taunting me to be a creep

    It says "Hey man, stand up for yourself"
    "Hey man, I got a plan for you, it's working oh so well"

    I picked up the pay phone and I held the zero down
    Please operator, collect call to out of town
    The call came back rejected, but that operator was kind
    Enough to talk to me and get me through to the middle of.. (The night)

    Yeah, so tonight, will be my night
    I'm calling all my friends, the boys are going out tonight. Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
