really do appreciate the fact you're sittin' here
Your voice sounds so wonderful
But your face don't look too clear
So, Barmaid, bring a pitcher, another round of brew
Honey, why don't we get drunk and screw.

(Chorus)
Why don't we get drunk and screw
I just bought a waterbed filled up for me and you
They say you are a snuff queen, Honey, I don't think that's true
So, why don't we get drunk and screw.
(Instrumental)
(Repeat chorus)

    General Commenthow could noone post about this song. its the most obvious of meanings but at the same time classic. this song puts into words what most other musicians are scared to, just flat out says what everyone is looking to do when they go to the bar, get drunk and get laid. gotta love it.

    General CommentThis never actually has happened to me in any bar I've been to, although the "get drunk and screw" at a bar concept is prevelant everywhere in life - in fiction, movies, in jokes. A lot of people THINK about it, but I must be going to the wrong bars because I've never actually seen this phenomenon in ACTION. I think it's mostly a publicity notion to get patrons to their bars, because most bars are boring or nobody has the courage.... I'll shut up with my rant now.

    General CommentJimmy said he watched a businessman trying to pick up a hooker and it just came to him. He said he already people like Conway Twitty already doing so pretty racy stuff, like "Let's Go All the Way." I think he just wanted to cut the BS.

    General CommentBuffett got tired of hearing those new country songs with hidden sexual meanings so he just wrote a song that flat out says it

    General CommentI Love Jimmy Buffett, but I hate this song. It Just seems so tasteless.

    General CommentWhen I was a kid, my parents would play the cd album "Songs Your Know By Heart" in the car on trips to the beach. They always skipped past this song. I listened to it the other day, and decided that I hadn't been missing much. Funny, yes; listen again, no.

    General CommentThis song is a parady on all country songs. He never meant it to be beautiful or anything, he wrote it to make fun of country (kind of ironic now, as more and more people consider him a country artist).
