  • It's the middle of the week
    I'm just driving home
    The sun's going down and nothing's going on

    They played Whiskey River, I turn it up
    And suddenly it hit me how thirsty I was

    It's only Wednesday night, gotta get up early
    And tell you the truth, I ain't that worried
    Bout that right now so I think I'm gonna hit downtown and get loud

    Well it's one of them nights, feels like we oughta be drinkin''
    We gotta get a little rowdy like we're living in a country song
    But some nights are made for staying at home
    Sitting on the couch, watching TV alone
    But tonight it sure feels like we oughta be drinkin'

    I'll be damned
    I'm not the only one here
    Looks like the whole damn town's in the mood for a beer

    It ain't the weekend yet, even 2 for 1 night
    'Cause we're just drawn to that heavy neon light

    I'm glad I hate my job
    What's your excuse?
    You got a broken heart or are you just thirsty too?

    Could be anything
    But whatever the case
    I think we're all planning on getting shit-faced

    But it's one of them nights, feels like we oughta be drinkin'
    We gotta get a little rowdy like we're living in a country song
    But some nights are made for staying at home
    Sitting on the couch and watching TV alone
    But tonight it sure feels like we oughta be drinkin'

    But some nights are made for staying at home
    And roll a big fat blunt and watching Nashville alone
    But tonight it sure feels like we oughta be drinkin'
    Honey tonight it sure feels like we oughta be drinkin'
    Yeah tonight it sure feels like we oughta be drinkin' Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
