about

On tour in Lexington, KY in the Spring of 2006. The venue was a no-frills local watering hole filled with a mix of locals and college students. There was one woman, clearly a regular patron of the bar, Red was her name, who had a particular interest in us. She took it upon herself to get us a tip jar and when she couldn't find a jar she brought over a chair and told everyone this was our tip chair and pay up on the seat! We bonded on the breaks and after the show, she came up and imparted some words of wisdom: "Honey, " she said, "When you get to be ma age, somedays you jist don' feel so perty....so, you's got to DRINK yerself perty!!" I will forever be indebted to Red for her insight into life which inspiried one of my favorite songs to date. 9/2006

lyrics

Drink Myself Pretty
Written by Julie Neumark & Oren Hadar

Gimme a 1/5 of Stoli
Bottle of Jack
Tanguerey my soul please if the label is black
Southern my comfort with some Absolut
Shine my moon with more than 80 proof

I’m gonna drink myself pretty tonight

Flirty mamas pay me no mind
I get all my lovin’ from a bottle of red wine
Don’t go gettin’ none of that plastic surgery
Just take a shot of Jaeger and set your beauty free!

Go on and drink yourself pretty tonight
I’m gonna drink myself pretty tonight
BRIDGE:
Hey baby whatcha lookin’ at?
Move on, there’s nothin’ here to see
I’m doin’ fine, killin’ time, just waitin’
For you to look as good as me

solo

Gonna drink myself pretty
Drink myself pretty
Gonna drink myself pretty
Oh, I’m a gonna drink too much
So I can be as pretty as a Miss America

I feel pretty
I feel pretty
I feel pretty and witty and pretty and wit-
I feel pretty
I feel pretty
I feel pretty and witty and pretty and witty
Tonight
Aw, tonight
Aw, tonight
Aw, tonight
