The Lyrics

It's the time of the year for football, along with the traditional festivities.
Today there's gonna be a tailgate
Football game's in town
See me and the boys gonna party
So were setting up and drinking down

Hanging out cooking lots of food
You might see us grilling if you come here
Say what you think and you may take a drink
From our keg of beer

Today there's gonna be a tailgate
Football game's in town
Today there's gonna be a tailgate
Feel free to come around

You may come around

Today there's gonna be football
All of us fans will yell
See the boys and coach mean business
Bustin' out, raisin' some hell

I can see our defense on his tail
The flags will fly, and then the whistles wail
Looks like we're gonna win
We won't fail

Today we're gonna watch some football
Stadium is loud
Today we're gonna watch some football
We've got a sellout crowd

There's nothing better than football
On Saturday afternoon
Our team is driving down the yard lines
We're gonna be scoring soon

You know we're winning

Tonight we'll take our celebration
Into the city streets
Won't you please come and join us
You're in for a treat

Get up off my tail
Tonight my self-control will fail
Hey you good lookin' female
Come here!

Tonight we'll have another tailgate
Right after the game
Tonight we'll have another tailgate
And party just same

Tonight I'm gonna cause trouble
I'm gonna get myself drunk
And soon we're gonna plan next week
And we'll bring back all our junk
