  • Last night downtown I was drinking the booze
    Like it was going out of style
    My whole head got light
    I lost my eyesight
    I ain't been that drunk in awhile
    Along about 1 I spotted a queen
    And I started to make my move
    Aw, she was believing every line I was laying
    Lord I was just too cool
    Well I thought I died and gone to heaven
    But lord did I look like a fool
    Last night I came in at 2 with a 10
    But at 10 I woke up with a 2

    [Chorus]
    Last night I came in at 2 with a 10
    But at 10 I woke up with a 2
    I've got 20/20 vision when I ain't drinking
    But lord when I do I lose
    I ain't never gone to bed with an uglier woman
    But I sure woke up with a few
    Last night I came in at 2 with a 10
    But at 10 I woke up with a 2

    Well I made up my mind
    I was never gonna find
    Myself in that condition again
    But here I sit on the same bar stool
    And just look at the shape I'm in
    I done spotted me another queen
    Sitting at a table alone
    So I strolled on over and sat myself down
    And asked if I can take her home
    When she said yes, I thought I'd been blessed
    But boy did I look like a fool
    Last night I came in at 2 with a 10
    But at 10 I woke up with a 2

    [Chorus]

    Now you may laugh
    But if you've got the cash
    I'll bet you 10 to 1 you have too Writer/s: BILL NOSWORTHY, BO ROBERTS, JACK MACK, MACK VICKERY
