Toby Keith - Get Drunk And Be Somebody Lyrics

Yeah the big boss man, he likes to crack that whip
I ain't nothing but a number on his timecard slip,
I give him 40 hours and a piece of my soul,
Puts me somewhere at the bottom of his totem pole,
Hell I don't even think he knows my name...

Well all week long I'm a real nobody,
But I just punched out and its paycheck Friday,
Weekends here, good God almighty,
I'm going to get drunk and be somebody
Yeah, yeah, yeah...

My baby cuts hair at a beauty boutique,
Just blowin' and goin' till she dead on her feet,
They walk right in and sit right down,
She gives them what they want and then she spins them around,
Hey I don't think they even know her name...

All week long she's a real nobody,
but I just picked her up and its paycheck Friday,
Weekends here, good God almighty,
Baby lets get drunk and be somebody
Yeah, yeah, yeah...

Well just average people, in an everyday bar,
driving from work in our ordinary cars,
and I like to come here with the regular Joes,
drink all you want, be the star of the star
of the show

All week long bunch of real nobodies,
but we just punched out and its paycheck Friday,
Weekends here, good God almighty,
People lets get drunk (lets get drunk!)
All week long we're some real nobodies,
but we just punched out and its paycheck Friday,
Weekends here, good God almighty,
People lets get drunk and be somebody
Yeah, yeah, yeah...

    Damn straight he is! I love Toby Keith. I think he really is an everyday kinda guy. I read an article where he said that someone had called him white trash with money and his wife got mad. He said something like "Why are you mad? Too close to the truth?" He thought it was funny. lol I love a good sense of humor on anyone. That makes me forgive a lot. lol

    Rare Air Entertainment

    They won't let that happen, he's a conservative. God Guns, and Country for Toby

  52. Bryan Shapiro

    I used to live in Oklahoma, near Moore (thank God NOT Moore). Worked with some his former roughneck oil rig friends......I learned to love country esp Toby.where Country Rules!! The video for the song "Trailerhood" ain't far from the truth in Oklahoma..........hard for this transplanted Yankee to believe.........found it endearing........they're TOUGH folks.....Look up the story of Miranda Lambert and ..Carrie Underwood...They're resilient...........determined..............



  54. Matthew Heller

    Lamar Jackson

    Susan Dooley I could’ve been in this video, I was two. I would’ve been if I stopped crying!

  59. Jamie Fleury

    He is by far the best country singer on the  planet.. He is so hot and he is  all about the soldiers. .

  60. Chris Joy

    People who like this shit song shouldn't be drinking especially on an empty brain.

    Dylan K

    Aka a party song.

    Chris Joy

    +Dylan K more like the song that gets played when you want everyone to leave the party.

    Dylan K

    That reminds me of a franchise of stores that sells music but the music the play the most, is so bad i leave before i play anything.


    +Chris Joy Go listen to someone else like Bieber and let the cool people love some Toby!!!

    Ethan Pederson

    Chris Joy for someone with the word "joy" in your name, you don't spread a lot of it

I do drink but damn I have other things to do in my life like taking care of my almost four kids (due in August) and do my actual job that I go to work and do that brings home a paycheck (me and my husband both work) and I drive all the time. Damn can't stay drunk all the time

    Marian Bonanno

    Too bad this was 4 years ago...I don’t drink but I’m somebody. I love Toby’s song and Toby. But you are going to become so ill with as much as you drink. All your fans love you so. Please get some help for your drinking..

    Noah Tabor

    @countrygirl countrymusiclover ddddddd

    countrygirl countrymusiclover

    @Noah Tabor you're mental. get help. no person in their sane right mind would send a shitty ass comment with a bunch of d's. I am embarrassed that sweet adorable two year old nephew has the same first name as you. I will pray for you to get the help you need

    countrygirl country musiclover

    FillUmUpp I find it damn near impossible that one he goes to random bars before shows. And two find it even more impossible that he goes out without being recognized. As famous as he is people know what he looks like by now

  93. Courtney Davis
