Honky Tonk Queen    (1981)

Well, everything was goin' my way
So I pressed my luck and called Moe today
To see if he was still around
Well, I shouldn't have answered the telephone
I knew when I did that it was wrong
When I found out who it was.

Well, it was just a matter of time
And we was out on the town a-drinking wine
When I saw my dream come true
She's walkin' in the Do Drop Inn
When Joe hit the brakes and we went in a spin
And ended up in the parking lot.

Ah, she's a beauty
She's a skag
She's got class
Aw, come on now
That little honky tonk queen
Well, Moe I've looked far and wide
You better look again when you ain't high
At that honky tonk queen.

We went inside and she was sittin' there
With lovely make-up and beautiful hair
So I asked that gal to dance
I tried my best to really stress
That girl didn't look right in that dress
But you never heard a word.

Ah, she's a beauty
She's a skag
She's got class
Aw, come on now
That little honky tonk queen
Well, Moe I've looked far and wide
You better look again when you ain't high
At that honky tonk queen.

As they danced he took her hand
Spun her around and pulled her in
Then he spun her a little too hard
And I started wondering when she said her name was Bill
Then her wig came off and I's ready to kill
That joker dressed like a female.

She's a beauty
Not so loud!
She's got style...
Come on, pal
That little honky tonk queen
Well Joe you've looked far and wide
But I won't look again Moe when I'm high
For a honky tonk queen.

I told you Joe somethin' didn't just look right to me
Now I've heard enough Moe!
Man you shoulda seen the look on your face
Hey, I don't wanna hear it no more!

Yeah, you don't wanna look no more do you?
I don't wanna drink no more either!
What is that stuff you're drinkin' Joe?
I don't...
How could you do somethin' like that?
I don't know!
