Little Big Town Lyrics

Day Drinking Lyrics
Everybody's always waiting on Friday
Watching that clock and sitting on go
Whatcha' say we find a little warm sunshine
An open umbrella on the patio

I don't need a reason or a happy hour
And hang around for a fireworks show
Get a head start a little sip of somethin'
Off and running here we go
1, 2, 3 here we go

Don't want to wait 'til the sun's sinking
We could be feeling alright
I know you know what I'm thinking
Why don't we do a little day drinking
Why don't we do a little day drinking

Blame it on the work day
Blame it on the heatwave
Blame it on the tick-tock moving too slow
Blame it on any old thing you want to
Ready get set, baby here we go

Don't want to wait 'til the sun's sinking
We could be feeling alright
I know you know what I'm thinking
Why don't we do a little day drinking
Day drinking, day drinking
Why don't we do a little day drinking

Don't want to wait 'til the sun's sinking
We could be feeling alright
I know you know what I'm thinking
Why don't we do a little day drinking

Don't want to wait 'til the sun's sinking
We could be feeling all right
I know you know what I'm thinking
Why don't we do a little day drinking
Why don't we do a little day drinking
Why don't we do a little day drinking

Day Drinking Info:

• On making the song, Fairchild said: "We didn't know it really, but with 'Day Drinking,' we had a blast that day because we were drinking and writing songs. We left it alone, then a couple of weeks later, Barry Dean and Troy Verges sent us a souped up work tape of what we had done. Then, we thought this is very fun and very cool."

• Jimi Westbrook said "It makes me think about those summer days when all that's on the agenda is hanging out, relaxing, and having a good time with friends. So, if that's your plan, here's your song! 'Why don’t we do a little day drinking?'"

• The whistling you hear in the chorus happened by accident, Karen Fairchild explained: "I remember that we had come from the road, because I remember being very hoarse, like really road weary voice-wise. So, when we were messing with melodies on the chorus, I started singing something but I couldn’t hit it, so I whistled it."
