Pour me a shot of tequila
Bud Elkin © 2016
[INTRO]
[Chorus]
So, pour me a glass of tequila; because a shot or two won’t do.
I need to forget my thinking, bout all the things that she could do.
I know it’s not the answer, but I guess it will have to do.
So, pour me a glass of tequila, because a shot or two won’t do.

[Verse]
She was beauty queen, from New Orleans; she did a center for a magazine.
When she walked by, she would catch the eye, of every sailor in this town.
I don’t think it bothered me bout the attention, she would get,
Till every young sailor, wanted to nail her, pinup on his bedroom wall.

[Chorus]
So, pour me a glass of tequila; because a shot or two won’t do.
I need to forget my thinking, bout all the things that she could do.
I know it’s not the answer, but I guess it will have to do.
So, pour me a glass of tequila, because a shot or two won’t do.

[Verse]
As time went by, she began to fly, all over to do her shows.
She did OPRAH, where she sat on a sofa, to tell her story to the world.
But she never said, that we were wed, or talked about us at all,
Or all the young sailors, wanting to nail her, pinup on their bedroom walls.

[Bridge]
But when I thought, that I wasn’t enough, to keep her occupied,
I lost my nerve, and went running scared, cause I thought I was losing the fight.

Chorus]
So, pour me a glass of tequila; because a shot or two won’t do.
I need to forget my thinking, bout all the things that she could do.
I know it’s not the answer, but I guess it will have to do.
So, pour me a glass of tequila, because a shot or two won’t do.

[Verse]
At home one night, looking for a fight, thinking of the things she’s done.
Always suspecting, that she was rejecting, all the love I had for her now.
But I would find, that it’s in my mind, and that her love was still for me.
What was I thinking, or maybe the drinking, clouded the love in my mind.

[Chorus]
So, pour me a glass of tequila; because a shot or two won’t do.
I need to forget my thinking, bout all the things that she could do.
I know it’s not the answer, but I guess it will have to do.
So, pour me a glass of tequila, because a shot or two won’t do.

[Chorus out]
So, pour me a glass of tequila; because a shot or two won’t do.
I need to forget my thinking, bout all the things that she could do.
I know it’s not the answer, but I guess it will have to do.
So, pour me a glass of tequila, because a shot or two won’t do.
