Ten Feet Tall on Tequila

I got a text from one of my friends
She said, “Let’s go out drinking again…”
And I asked, “Do you remember last night?
Cause I sure as hell don’t!”

I walked in the door about half an hour late
The same old faces; the same damn games
When the bartender said, “Come on, buddy,
Sit down and have a drink!”

Then out of nowhere I heard a laugh so loud
And I knew that it was that girl in the crowd
And I guess tables weren’t just made for eating on
Cause the next thing I know, she’s climbing up on top
When the bartender says, “Girl, you gonna have to stop!”
But she can’t hear for the crowd that’s cheering her on

Cause she’s ten feet tall on tequila again
You better watch out, better hide your boyfriend
And your girlfriends too; she’s a loaded gun of love
When she’s ten feet tall on tequila again
She’ll love you up until the party ends
Then it’s back home to her family of kids
Until she’s ten feet tall again

A couple hours in and we’re on to bar five
Who says Monday’s suck when you got a bunch of dives?
And if you look hard enough, you can find karaoke every night
She gets up to sing “I Will Always Love You”
And it sounds good to her, but I sure wish she would choose
The original version, cause with Whitney Houston’s, that girl is screwed

Then out of nowhere I heard a laugh so loud
And I knew that I’d lost that girl in the crowd
And I guess tables weren’t just made for eating on
Cause the next thing I know, she’s climbing up on top
When the bartender says, “Girl, you gonna have to stop!”
But she can’t hear for the crowd that’s cheering her on

Cause she’s ten feet tall on tequila again
You better watch out, better hide your boyfriend
And your girlfriends too; she’s a loaded gun of love
When she’s ten feet tall on tequila again
She’ll love you up until the party ends
Then it’s back home to her family of kids
Until she’s ten feet tall again

And she sings…
“I will always love you…
I will always love you, and you and you and you
Awwww, hell, I love everybody!”

Cause she’s ten feet tall on tequila again
You better watch out, better hide your boyfriend
And your girlfriends too; she’s a loaded gun of love
When she’s ten feet tall on tequila again
She’ll love you up until the party ends
Then it’s back home to her family of kids
Until she’s ten feet tall again

I got a text from one of my friends
She said, “Let’s go out drinking again…”
And I asked, “Do you remember last night?
Cause I sure as hell don’t!”
