  • I talk a lot of shit when I'm drinking, baby
    I'm known to go a little too fast
    Don't mind all my friends, I know they're all crazy
    But they're the only friends that I have
    I know I don't know you
    But I'd like to skip the small talk and romance, girl
    That's all I have to say so, baby, can we dance?

    Here we go again, another drink I'm caving in
    Stupid words keep falling from my mouth
    You know that I mean well
    My hands were meant for somewhere else
    Your eyes are doing naughty butterflies

    Oh, oh, one more drink and I should go
    Oh, oh, but maybe she might like me though
    Oh, oh, I just can't think of what to say
    Should I go, should I stay?
    Just can't let her slip away

    I talk a lot of shit when I'm drinking, baby
    I'm known to go a little too fast
    Don't mind all my friends, I know they're all crazy
    But they're the only friends that I have
    I know I don't know you
    But I'd like to skip the small talk and romance, girl
    That's all I have to say so, baby, can we dance?

    I was nearly in, but then came the pushy friend
    Killed the vibe and took my perfect ten, away
    You know I need you, girl
    My heart's not made for someone else
    So save me here 'cause I can barely stand

    Oh, oh, one more drink and I should go
    Oh, oh, but maybe she might like me though
    Oh, oh, I can't take this any more
    Should I stay? Should I go?
    It just can lead back to her door

    I talk a lot of shit when I'm drinking, baby
    I'm known to go a little too fast
    Don't mind all my friends, I know they're all crazy
    But they're the only friends that I have
    I know I don't know you
    But I'd like to skip the small talk and romance, girl
    That's all I have to say so, baby, can we dance?

    I've been a bad, bad boy
    Whispering rude things in her ear
    Please say she'll break
    Please say she'll change
    Her mind and bring me back to her place

    I talk a lot of shit when I'm drinking, baby
    I'm known to go a little too fast (a little too fast)
    Don't mind all my friends, I know they're all crazy
    But they're the only friends that I have
    I know I don't know you
    But I'd like to skip the small talk and romance, girl
    That's all I have to say so, baby, can we dance? Writer/s: AMUND BJORKLUND, BRUNO MARS, ESPEN LIND, KARL MICHEAL, PHILIP LAWERENCE, TIMZ ALUO
