Here we are reunion night, class of 1985
Guess we've done alright since graduation day
I guess we did okay

Yeah, they tried to teach us all to be pillars of society
Hoping we'd outgrow our redneck ways
But I look around and nothing's really changed

We've been drinking too much wine
We've been having too much fun
We've been laughing loud all night
And woke up everyone

We been swapping lies and swatting flies
And showing our country class
And we both know better
It don't get redder than that

Bobby's preaching down in San Antone
Don't seem like all that long ago
Since he mooned us all from the football field
Yeah, I remember that

Johnny sold that old Trans Am, now he's in a Mini-Van
I can't believe how old that makes me feel
Hey, but I bet tonight we could get him
To make those tires squeal

We've been drinking too much wine
We've been having too much fun
We've been laughing loud all night
And woke up everyone

We been swapping lies and swatting flies
And showing our country class
And we both know better
It don't get redder than that

Angeline, the homecoming queen
Flew all the way from France
She's looking good in them painted on jeans
And, Lord, she sure can dance
Hey, T-Roy, this might be your chance

She's been drinking too much wine
She's been having too much fun
We been laughing loud all night
And woke up everyone

We been swapping lies and making eyes
And showing our country ass
And we both know better
It don't get redder than that
We both know better
It don't get no redder than that
Yee, haw
Whoo

Hey, T
Bathroom
