Lyrics

Last night downtown I was drinking the booze
Like it was going out of style
My whole head got light
I lost my eyesight
I ain’t been that drunk in awhile
Along about one I spotted a queen
And I started to make my move
She was believing every line I was laying
Lord I was just too cool
Well I thought I had died and gone to heaven
But Lord did I look like a fool
Last night I came in at 2 with a 10
But at 10 I woke up with a 2

Last night I came in at 2 with a 10
But at 10 I woke up with a 2
I’ve got 20/20 vision when I ain’t drinking
But Lord when I get on that booze
I ain’t never gone to bed with an uglier woman
But I sure woke up with a few
Last night I came in at 2 with a 10
But at 10 I woke up with a 2

Well I made up my mind
I was never gonna find
Myself in that condition again
But here I sit on the same bar stool
And just look at the shape I’m in
I done spotted me another queen
Sitting at a table alone
So I strolled on over and sat myself down
And asked if I can take her home
When she said yes I thought I’d been blessed
But boy did I look like a fool
Last night I came in at 2 with a 10
But at 10 I woke up with a 2

Last night I came in at 2 with a 10
But at 10 I woke up with a 2
I’ve got 20/20 vision when I ain’t drinking
But Lord when I get on that booze
I ain’t never gone to bed with an uglier woman
But I sure woke up with a few
Last night I came in at 2 with a 10
But at 10 I woke up with a 2

Now you may laugh
But if you’ve got the cash
I’ll bet you 10 to 1 you have too

Kenny’s Note

I can’t count the nights, whether it in college, out on the road, or in some funky beach bar, that I’ve lived this song. It’s a guy’s anthem… you know, it’s not a classy song, but boys – and girls – we’ve all been there. Like the song says, “if you got the cash, I’ll bet you ten to one you have, too.”
