  • She said, "I guess there ain't no right way
    For you to say goodbye again
    You been looking at the highway
    Where your heart has always been
    I could cuss you from here to Tuscon
    But there ain't nothing left to say, boy"
    She said, "I thought that I could change you
    No, but you were born a playboy"

    So get on the stage and play boys
    Let's kick out the lights tonight, get high, and make noise
    We might drink a little too much whiskey
    We might have a little too much fun
    She's already gone away, boys
    If we don't go home, what difference does it make, boys?
    This whole world would be a dull place, boys
    If it was all work and no play, boys

    A hundred miles outside of Houston
    Third name on the marquee sign
    But out here you get used to losing
    Your friends, your lovers, and your mind

    So get on the stage and play boys
    Let's kick out the lights tonight, get high, and make noise
    Yeah, let's drink a little too much whiskey
    Yeah, let's have a little too much fun
    She's already gone away, boys
    If we don't go home, what difference does it make, boys?
    This whole world would be a dull place, boys
    If it was all work and no play, boys
    (Play, boys!)

    Set 'em up, we'll knock 'em down
    Wake up in another town
    We don't know no other way
    We ain't good at love
    We ain't good at much
    We just know how to play, hey, hey

    I'm just a playboy
    You can't blame me for the way that I was made boys
    Yeah, I might drink a little too much whiskey
    Yeah, I might have a little too much fun
    She's already gone away, boys
    If we don't go home, what difference does it make, boys?
    This whole world would be a dull place, boys
    If it was all work and no play, boys Writer/s: Cameron Thomas Duddy, Jess Carson, Josh Osborne, Mark C. Wystrach, Shane L. McAnally
