Lyrics

The Rural demo

Motel six, slow gin fizz
Swingin' in the lobby
Do the sunset twist
I can do it, you can do it
Move them hips
Come on, everybody, get dangerous

Fellas, if you wanna
Get the invite quicker
Pack up the pickup
Pick up the liquor
Go on, use your charm
Say "come on, gonna get her"
It's about time

Ladies, if you really
Wanna rein them suckers
Line up your lips
Plump up your puckers
It's about the only way
To get them motherfuckers
To do what you want to

It's a party, it's a party
We're so naughty, come on, Johnny
Do it, do it, do it, come on
It's a party, it's a party
That we started, come on, Johnny
Maybe this is where we belong

Motel six, you're so sick
Swingin' from the ceiling
Like a front man Rick
Show a little skin for my Polaroid pic
Promise I won't show
Your little girlfriend this

Ladies, if you really
Wanna know my secret
Come a little closer
Kitty, promise you'll keep it
Come a little nearer, dear
You gonna need it
Gonna tell you

It's a party, it's a party
We're so naughty, come on, Johnny
Do it, do it, do it, come on
It's a party, it's a party
That we started, come on, Johnny
Maybe this is where we belong

Baby, we can go down to 7-Eleven
Drive down the main drag in your Pontiac heaven.
You can drink and drive, whatever you want to
We'll get right down to it, me and you, boo

Layin' on your hood like it's a flatbed truck
In the spotlight, we see Jim and Chuck
Saw that car from a mile away and it's slowin'
Say that there's a motel dance, let's get goin'

It's a party, it's a party
We're so naughty, come on, Johnny
Do it, do it, do it, come on
It's a party, it's a party
That we started, come on, Johnny
Maybe this is where we belong

It's a party, it's a party
We're so naughty, come on, Johnny
Do it, do it, do it, come on
It's a party, it's a party
That we started, come on, Johnny
Maybe this is where we belong

Motel six, drive-in flicks
Ladies in their black cars, bras, and kicks
Baby's at the sitter's, oh, I'm gettin' my fix
Keepin' it, keepin' it glamorous

It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, c-c-come on
It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, c-c-come on

Men like a woman
Who just don't need 'em
Sweeter than cherry pie
And we'll treat 'em
Meaner than dirt, they deserve to be hurt
Do they realize what you're worth?

It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, c-c-come on
It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, c-c-come on

Maybe we can go down to 7-Eleven
Drive down the drag in your Pontiac heaven.
Baby, you can buy me Diet Mountain Dew
And we'll get right down to it, me and you

Layin' on your hood like a flatbed truck
In the spotlight, we see Jim and Chuck
We saw their car from a mile away and it's slowin'
"They say there's a motel dance
Let's get goin'."

It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, c-c-come on
It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, it's a party

Line up them lips and
Plump up them puckers

Way to get them motherfuckers
To do what you want to

It's a party, c-c-come on

Baby, if you really
Wanna know my secret
Come a little closer
Kitty, promise you'll keep it
Knew a little nearer there
Whisper you need it
Under the fairy lights

Men'll like a woman
Who just don't need 'em
Sweeter than cherry pie
But we'll treat 'em
Meaner than dirt, they deserve to be hurt
Do they realize what
You're worth, worth, worth?

It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, c-c-come on
It's a party, it's a party

And we'll get right down to it, that's me and you

I'm laying on your hood like it's a flatbed truck
In the spotlight, we see Jim and Chuck
We saw their car from a mile away and it's slowing
They say there's a motel dance
Let's get going

It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, c-c-come on
It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, c-c-come on
