  • The stars go out on the Sunset Strip
    But after last call, ours still stay lit
    Make a twenty last like it's 1990
    Way out here where we're from
    We don't say, "Ooh-la-la, Perignon"
    Don't need no bottle service budget (no)
    Got no money but we love it (woo)

    Raisin' plastic cups to a life of luxury
    C'est la vie on a Friday
    We get dressed up in a blue jean tux
    And we go where we don't hear the highway
    Don't need doubles and bubbles
    To get in all kinds of trouble
    Out in the country
    Don't need a crystal chandelier
    To have a real good time
    We're drinkin' beer on a champagne night
    A champagne night

    No velvet ropes in our hometown bar
    Our VIPs are drinkin' PBR
    No, we don't need a high-rise skyline view from the window
    'Cause way out here (way out here)
    Where we're from (where we're from)
    We don't have to be fancy to have a whole lot of fun

    Raisin' plastic cups to a life of luxury
    C'est la vie on a Friday
    We get dressed up in a blue jean tux
    And we go where we don't hear the highway
    Don't need doubles and bubbles
    To get in all kinds of trouble
    Out in the country
    Don't need a crystal chandelier
    To have a real good time
    We're drinkin' beer on a champagne night

    Champagne night

    You'll never see us sippin' long-stem glasses
    Even if we're in a Hollywood palace
    We ain't on our own island
    No, we ain't drippin' in diamonds
    We're gettin' rhinestoned

    Raisin' plastic cups to a life of luxury
    C'est la vie on a Friday
    We get dressed up in a blue jean tux
    And we go where we don't hear the highway
    Don't need doubles and bubbles
    To get in all kinds of trouble
    Out in the country
    Don't need a crystal chandelier
    To have a real good time
    We're drinkin' beer on a champagne night

    (We're drinkin' beer on a champagne night)
    (We're drinkin' beer on a champagne night)
    I'm drinkin' beer on a champagne night
    (We're drinkin' beer on a champagne night)
    (We're drinkin' beer on a champagne night)
    We're drinkin' beer on a champagne night Writer/s: Andrew DeRoberts, Charles Kelley, Dave Haywood, David Thompson, Esther Dean, Hillary Dawn Scott, Madeline Merlo, Patricia Conroy, Ryan B. Tedder, Shane L. McAnally, Tina Annette Gemza
