lyrics

When Friday comes you’d better believe I got a whole lotta good timin’ up my sleeve. A whole lotta hijinx and honky tonkin’, a couple strong drinks and my feet start stompin’. Listen here buddy, you’ve been warned. If you poke the hive you’re bound to get the swarm.
You can’t stay drunk forever, lord knows I’ve tried.
You’ve been warned come Monday morn you’re gonna hang your head and cry. You can’t stay drunk forever. Let me tell you friend. There’ll come a day where you will say “I aint never gonna drink again.”
Well, some folks tell me that they’re afraid that my good timin’ will get me one of these days. Well don’t y’all worry your pretty little heads about me. I know a bar by the hospital and health care is free. So listen here Bucko, you’ve been warned. If you poke the bull you’re bound to get the horn.
You can’t stay drunk forever, lord knows I’ve tried.
You’ve been warned come Monday morn you’re gonna hang your head and cry. You can’t stay drunk forever. Let me tell you friend. There’ll come a day where you will say “I aint never gonna drink again.”
Sometimes my baby gets lowdown. Paintin’ on her nails while I’m paintin’ the town. I’ll stumble home hopin’ she’s asleep and find everything I own lying out in the street. So listen close Brother, you’ve been warned. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
You can’t stay drunk forever, lord knows I’ve tried.
You’ve been warned come Monday morn you’re gonna hang your head and cry. You can’t stay drunk forever. Let me tell you friend. There’ll come a day where you will say “I aint never gonna drink again.”
