  • Well, I got a call from Rowdy 'round six o'clock
    Sayin' he caught a hankerin' for a honky tonk
    Wants an ice cold beer and a country song
    But he didn't want to stay out all night long
    Well, I ain't the kind to let a buddy drink alone
    But I can't turn it off once I turn it on

    There's no stoppin' me once I get goin'
    Put a can in my hand, man, I'm wide ass open
    The tick-tock of that clock is like a time bomb
    By half-past-ten, I'm half past tipsy
    At quarter-to-twelve, man, I done had plenty
    The countdown's on when the first beer hits me
    5-4-3-2-1 too many

    After five diet Millers I was feelin' loose
    Singin' karaoke to a TL tune
    When a pretty little thing shot me a wink
    She said, "Hey cowboy, could you buy us a drink?"
    Well hey, baby doll, I will if you want
    But I can't turn it off once I turn it on

    There's no stoppin' me once I get goin'
    Put a can in my hand, man, I'm wide ass open
    The tick-tock of that clock is like a time bomb
    By half-past-ten, I'm half past tipsy
    At quarter-to-twelve, man, I done had plenty
    The countdown's on when the first beer hits me
    5-4-3-2-1 too many
    Come on!

    Nah, I never been the kind to quit
    Won't stop 'til I get to the bottom of this
    And the night's still young
    So whatcha say we shotgun one?
    Yeah, we'll shoot one with you, Luke, come on Ronnie!

    There's no stoppin' me once I get to goin'
    Put a can in my hand, man, I'm wide ass open
    The tick-tock of that clock is like a time bomb
    Yeah, by half-past-ten, I'm half past tipsy
    At quarter-to-twelve, man, I done had plenty
    The countdown's on when the first beer hits me
    5-4-3-2-1 too many
    Yeah, 5-4-3-2-1 too many
    Come on, that's a country song right there, fuck Writer/s: Dan Isbell, Drew Parker, Luke Combs, Tyler King
