The Lyrics

In reality, I would NOT get smashed, nor would I piss away twenty bucks on liquor, much less go bar-hopping in a nun costume. But I guess it'd be fun to try (minus the getting-smashed part).
I just got paid
Handsomely
This Friday

I’ve wanted
To go hop-
Ping bars tonight

If I piss a-
Way my last twenty
I’d like a Cosmo
And a Bloody Mary

Who’s all coming
To see me
As a nun

Like Ouiser
Boudreaux in Steel
Magnolias

I’ll just piss a-
Way my last twenty
I want a Cosmo
And a Bloody Mary

Forgot what I was
Told ‘cause I’m not that old
I am in the mood
To get totally smashed

Let’s waste time
Hopping bars
Around the town

The bartenders
Won’t get tired
Of seeing us

Looks like I’ll be
Saving my twenty
‘Cause none of the bars
Have Cosmos or Marys*

I don’t want a beer
I want a damn cocktail
I’d hate to think that
I dressed up for nothing

All that I am
And all my dignity
Has been flushed down the drain by
My unlucky night

I don’t know who
Else would wear my nun costume
In public, much less
Wear it going out bar to bar

It’s two a.m.
And I got nothing
I am still sober
And twenty bucks richer
*Bloody Marys

Haha, yup. I got a lot of hate last night for whatever reason. But it's good to know there's fans out there. Thank you for your continuing encouragement and fanship. I appreciate it.
