Shelly West – Jose Cuervo Lyrics

 

Well, it’s Sunday morning

And the sun in shining in my eye that is open

And my head is spinning

Was the life of the party

I can’t stop grinning

I had to much tequila last night

 

Jose Cuervo

You are a friend of mine

I like to drink you with a little salt and lime

 

Did I kiss all the cowboys?

Did I shoot out the lights?

Did I dance on the bar?

Did I start a fight?

 

Now wait a minute

Things don’t look to familiar

Who is this cowboy who’s sleepin’ beside me?

He’s awful cute

But how’d I get his shirt on?

I had to much tequila last night

 

Jose Cuervo

You are a friend of mine

I like to drink you with a little salt and lime

 

Did I kiss all the cowboys?

Did I shoot out the lights?

Did I dance on the bar?

Did I start a fight?

 

All those little shooters

How I love to drink ’em down

Come on, bartender

Let’s have another round

 

Well, the music is playing and my spirits are high

Tomorrow might be painful

But tonight we’re gonna fly

Did I start any fights?

 

Jose Cuervo

You are a friend of mine

I like to drink you with a little salt and lime

 

Every time we get together

I sure have a good time

You’re my friend, you’re the best, mi amigo

(Tequila)

 

Jose Cuervo

You are a friend of mine

I like to drink you with a little salt and lime

 

Did I kiss all the cowboys?

Did I shoot out the lights?

Did I dance on the bar?

Did I start a fight?

 

Jose Cuervo, you are a friend of mine
