Jimmy Buffett – Too Drunk To Karaoke lyrics

Last night at the bar it was karaoke night
Yeah, everybody down there was feeling alright
They got big margarita pitchers, two for one
Yum, yum!
They were feeling footloose and ready for some fun

When I signed up, I was ready to go
But they didn't call my name for an hour or so
Damn if they didn't make me wait too long
I was in no kinda shape to sing a Jon Bon's song

Too drunk to karaoke
Too drunk to karaoke

If you keep on drinkin' you're gonna be
Too drunk to karaoke, just like me

Too drunk to karaoke
Too drunk to karaoke

Well, the place got rockin', temptation was strong
All the pretty girls kept a eggin' me on
Well, I shoulda kept my flip flops glued to the chair
But no I jumped right up and slicked back my hair

Too drunk to karaoke
Too drunk to karaoke

You can sing in the shower till you sound real good
You can terrorize the whole damn neighborhood
But when you hit that stage with that mic in your hand
You better pace yourself son if you wanna have fans

Too drunk to karaoke
Too drunk to karaoke

If you ask me, hell I killed that song!
When I looked around, everybody was gone
Except a couple of bouncers 'bout half my age
They grabbed the microphone and threw me off the stage

You're too drunk to karaoke
That's what they told me
You're too drunk to karaoke
How can that be?

You don't have to be good, don't have to be refined
You just have to be a legend in your own mind
Don't have to rehearse, or even sing on key
Just prove that theory of drunketivity

Too drunk to karaoke
Too drunk to karaoke
Look at me!
You're too drunk to karaoke
Just like me
Too drunk to karaoke
