The Boys Don't Get Prettier At Closing Time

You're not going to see my picture  on the cover of a magazine And as far as worldwide travel goes  here's the only place I've been.  Now I'm not looking for an oil man,  investment banker or movie star But I'll be damned if I'm willing to play  the part at a 2:00 am closing bar.  Girls talk just like boys talk  and we know all your corny lines About going ugly early and  getting prettier at closing time We watch you step up to the plate  And then swing at every pitch Tell us what you think we want to hear Pretend that you're filthy rich.  A word to the wise to all those guys Who still play this silly game Being male does not exclude you From the morning walk of shame.
