Lyrics

Two Minute Warning

Written By: Jenn Stevenson

You don' t have to buy me dinner
Don't wanna hear about your college days when you were thinner
What you got in your hand makes you the winner...
You're just one drink away from loving
I don't care about originality cuz
There ain't nothin new that you can say to me
I got the gate but darlin
You got the key
And you're just one drink away from lovin
Shine your shoes
Yeah, comb your hair
Make sure that you got it
Right there in your pocket
Enough of what will get you there
You know they say women have been objectified
I say the situation has been rectified
The look on your face when you run outta dough and your still
One drink away from lovin
You know whats gonna happen , you 'll go and find your best friend and tell him
Man can I borrow 10 little clams, you know
He's got a girl and she treats him alright
He knows exactly who he's takin home tonight
So you belly up and pay with exact change
You drink up your drink and you make your escape
You get her into the car and pull up to her street
When the driver says "That'll be 7.50 please"
You look in her eyes she says "Don't even ask me - you know very well I ain't payin for no taxi."
The very next night your back on your stool
Bartender ignoring you and she is too
Your best friend wants to know "Where is my money, fool? Are you still one drink away from loving?"
Shine your shoes
Yeah, comb your hair
Make sure that you got it
Right there in your pocket
Enough of what will get you there
You know you gotta feel bad for the boys
For them it's a chore, for us it's a choice
I'm perfectly consenting after 3 Rob Roys
And I'm just one drink away from lovin you
