lyrics

When life has knocked you down
No use complaining now
Just order up another round and loosen up those hips
Miss tequila mockingbird
You play the song, I'll sing the words
You always were so clever
At your best, there's nothing better
You give me two fingers and I'll give you the cue

I'm charming or I'm crazy
I'm whichever you'd prefer
So if you felt like something special
It's because you always were
But when I speak the words might seem
A little slurred I'm sure
But I never lie, and that's a fact
As far as Miss Tequila is concerned

Take me to another place
Take me on holiday
Take me to the altered states to escape
Yes, take me to another place

This bottle feels light, it won't help me survive
It's keeping me safe from the dangers at night
It's making up God, it's making up time
One party for the human race

Oh, shit.

I didn't mean to call you, but hello, how've you been?
If you can not understand me, the drunk got phone again
But when that phone get's lonely, it likes to talk with lips
So give me fifteen minutes girl, I'll show you I'm missing still

You've always understood me, yes it's true
You always know exactly what to do
Sincerity -- it comes it spades the more that I consume
I swear to you, just give me one more drink and I'll be

Through with taking orders
Through with holding back
Through will regrets for not taking a chance
Ready to become a man

You always feel so warm
You always feel so right
Wrapped up in my arms
Until the morning light arrives

And that's when the headache comes…

Miss tequila mockingbird, you play the song, I'll sing the words
You always were so clever, at your best there's nothing better

Miss tequila mockingbird, you play the song, I'll sing the words
You always were so clever, at your best there's nothing better

But I'm charming or I'm crazy
I'm whichever you'd prefer
So if you felt like something special
It's because you always were
But when I speak the words might seem
A little slurred I'm sure

But I never lie, and that's a fact
As far as Miss Tequila is concerned
