I was talking, not two days ago
To a certain bartender I'm lucky to know
And I asked Henry, my bartending friend
If I should bother dating unfamous men

And Henry said, "You're lucky
To even know me
You're lucky to be alive"

"You're lucky
To be drinking here for free
'Cause I'm a sucker
For your lucky, pretty eyes"

And then he said, "Do you wanna
Be a polyester bride?
Or do you want
To hang your head and die?"

"Do you want to find alligator
Cowboy boots they just put on sale?
Do you want to flap your wings
And fly away from here?"

And I was sitting, not two days ago
Feeling lonely, 'cause I'm just feeling low
And I asked Henry, my bartending friend
Why it is that there are those kind of men

And Henry said, "You're lucky
To even know me
You're lucky to be alive"

"You're lucky
To be drinking here for free
'Cause I'm a sucker
For your lucky, pretty eyes"

And then he said, "Do you wanna
Be a polyester bride?
Or do you want
To hang your head and die?"

"Do you want to find alligator
Cowboy boots they just put on sale?
Do you want to flap your wings
And fly away from here?"

"Princess, do you really
Want to flap your wings and fly?
Because you've got time"

He keeps telling me
"You've got time"
But I don't believe him
"You've got time"

I keep on pushing harder
I keep on pushing farther away
But he keeps telling me, "Baby"
He says, "Baby, yeah"

"Do you want
To be a polyester bride?
Or do you want
To hang your head and die?"

"Do you want to find alligator
Cowboy boots they just put on sale?
Do you want to flap your wings
And fly away from here?"

"Do you want
To be a polyester bride?"
(Away from here)

"Do you want
To be a polyester bride?"
(Away from here)

"Do you want
To be a polyester bride?"
"Princess, do you really want
To flap your wings and fly away from here?"
