"Lisa's Birthday" as written by and Patterson Hood Brad Morgan....
It's always Lisa's birthday when I get that call
She's got no money for a cab she's way to drunk to walk
Lisa's had more birthdays than there are sad country songs
About trying to love two women and only taking one girl home

It's a good thing that her dancing shoes don't run on gasoline
She could dry up Texas in one night the way she feels that beat
If I don't find them under the bed we make love on,
She's lighting Lisa's candles and they'll be burning all night long

So happy birthday Lisa Good evening Jim Beam
Goodnight all you socialites don't wait up for me
I'll be out way past the time the scenes' no sight to see
Ya'll don't live with Lisa
And she don't stay with me

It's always Lisa's birthday when I get that call
Her car's not where she parked it it's with her wallet and her phone
Lisa's had more birthdays than there are sad country songs
About trying to love two women and only taking one girl home

I get older and Lisa keeps on turning twenty-one

    General CommentLisa is the friend of the wife/girlfriend. As in "honey, why are you so hammered?" "Well, it was Lisa's Birthday !"

    General CommentTo me this song is about the contrast between the speaker and Lisa, who might be his wife.

    In the town I'm from its pretty normal that people go to the local bar and get drunk and make a fool of yourself in general; the last one I bothered going to, the girl whos birthday we were celebrating was, by the end of the night, a mess and being taken advantage of men. And this will likely happen every year for those people, and that seems a sad life to me.

    The speaker always knows when its lisas birthday when she phones him:
    "It's always Lisa's birthday when I get that call
    Her car's not where she parked it it's with her wallet and her phone"

    I think the speaker shares my view on the birthday at the bar.
