  • That neon sign
    Hanging outside that bar
    Should've said "Go home
    If you know what's good for your heart"
    When she sat down
    In that ADPi t-shirt
    Should've said "Watch out
    And boy, you're gonna wind up hurt"
    And that label on that whiskey on that shelf
    Should've said "Don't buy no shots for no one else"

    Should've come with a warnin' (ooh)
    Don't sit right there
    Don't sip on what they're pouring (you)
    Her kiss is gonna kill you in the morning
    Nah, it ain't gonna end too good
    Everything about that night I thought I wanted
    Should've come with a warnin' (ooh)
    Should've come with a warnin'

    Phone just lit up
    And it's damn near 2AM
    Oughta be blue lights, or some kind of loud sirens
    Sayin', "Don't pick it up, she'll let you down"
    It's the deep end and you're gonna drown
    And this "You up?" text that she sent me right now

    Should've come with a warnin' (ooh)
    Don't sit right there
    Don't sip on what they're pouring (you)
    Her kiss is gonna kill you in the morning
    Nah, it ain't gonna end too good
    Everything about that night I thought I wanted
    Should've come with a warnin' (ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh)
    Should've come with a warnin'

    Don't fire it up, and hit the headlights
    Turn on around at the next red light
    I wish somebody would've gave me some damn signs
    Yeah, I wish that night

    Would've come with a warnin' (ooh, ooh-ooh)
    Would've come with a warnin'
    Would've come with a warnin' (ooh, ooh-ooh)
    (Ooh, ooh-ooh)
    Would've come with a warnin' Writer/s: Ashley Glenn Gorley, Ernest Keith Smith, Ryan Vojtesak
