lyrics

Well, it’s a beautiful night for a jukebox
It’s a jukebox night for a beauty
She came in for a little conversation
after breaking up with her old aggravation
but it looks like the place is dead tonight
so she’ll just have to drown her own consolation

Well beauty said ugly
and ugly said beauty
and Michael said, “Leave me alone”
and The Runt said, "Can we still be friends”
and the bartender said, “Go home.
Go home."

Well, the priest points for another whiskey
‘cause the congregation ain’t listenin’
So he came in for a little conversation
after sending up the same old salutations
but it looks like the place is dead tonight
so he’ll just have to drown his own consolation

Well beauty said ugly
and ugly said beauty
and Michael said, “Leave me alone”
and The Runt said, "Can we still be friends”
and the bartender said, “Go home.
Go home."

“Muddy used to pack this place
Buy the whole bar a round of beer
Taught ‘em how to sigh with pride
and how to dance through tears
But that was back some years
Go home”

(Come get aboard, come get aboard,
Come get aboard, come get aboard)

Well, he’s sitting right there with his guitar
singing to a spot on the wall
She said, “If you don’t do no covers
can I finish my jukebox songs?”
He said, “Can’t you see me standing here
pouring my heart from my chest?
I only do originals
Motherfuck a Kanye West.”

Well beauty said ugly
and ugly said beauty
and Michael said, “Leave me alone”
and The Runt said, "Can we still be friends”
and the bartender said, “Go home.

Go home."
(Come get aboard, come get aboard,
Come get aboard, come get aboard)
“Go home."
(Come get aboard, come get aboard,
Come get aboard, come get aboard)
