Courage in a Glass

There’s a girl over there lookin’ at you
You’re a shy cowboy who looks down a lot
You’re hopin’ she might come over here
and break the ice, ’cause damn, she’s hot

But I’ve just fixed you somethin’ Mister
You’ll be off that stool ‘n askin’ her to dance
Just throw it back like you’re takin’ cough syrup
and you’ll have more than just a chance

Courage in a glass
Swig it down & see what happens next
Can’t promise you’ll get to second base
But she might send her digits to you in a text
Try it out, maybe you’ll be surprised to see
That this courage in a glass
will change ya into the man she’ll want’cha to be

She’s sittin’ at the bar with a scotch on the rocks
She’s wearin’ those flip-flops without any socks
You don’t know this but by the end of the night
She might even think you’re Mr. Right

She’s been outta the game for quite a while
You wouldn’t know it from the way she smiles
She sure has handled all those aggressive boys
who try to impress her with their fancy toys

But all you have is your wit & charm
and damn, you’re funny as hell
Just don’t go in there with pickup lines
or ask if she’s got somethin’ she’d like to sell

Courage in a glass
Swig it down & see what happens next
Can’t promise you’ll get to second base
But she might send her digits to you in a text
Try it out, maybe you’ll be surprised to see
That this courage in a glass
will change ya into the man she’ll want’cha to be

This courage in a glass
is especially for you two from me.

Lyric Notes: Must have been inspired by all those crazy Dollar Nights at the Catalyst in Santa Cruz back in the day. Most of the time it was Courage in a Glass that made me look like an ass… haha.
