The Lyrics

Spent a night at the races
Left with a splitting head
Ticket said "standing room only"
If only I'd had a seat instead!

Had to stand at the fences
With men who acted like boys
Beer cans strewn all around us
What a fuss--alot of stinkin noise

Come on, I'm a little short
Let me have a good view
Come on, will this evening end?
Will this evening end?

You don't need to holler
Why don't you shut up
Get your hand off my shoulder, my husband
Will kick up alot of dust

I know you're into Nascar
A fact not lost on me
I just wanna survive this with my sis
Who flew in on Thursday

But I won't wear these ear plugs
Cause they don't do no good
Can't wait til the last lap-I'm hungry
And I can't afford the food

Come on, I'm a little short
Let me have a good view
Come on, will this evening end?
Will this evening end?

Spent a night at the races........
