POP A TOP
(Nat Stuckey)
« © '65 Stuckey Publishing »

CHORUS: Pop a top again.
I've just got time for one more round.
Set 'em up, my friend, then I'll be gone,
And you can let some other fool sit down.

I'd like for you to listen to a joke I heard today,
From a woman who said she was through and calmly walked away.
I tried to smile, and did awhile, but it felt so out of place.
Did you ever hear of a clown with teardrops streaming down his face? CHORUS

Home for me is misery and here I'm wasting time,
'Cause a row of fools on a row of stools is not what's on my mind,
But then, you see, her leaving me is not what I prefer,
So it's either here just drinking beer or home rememberin' her. CHORUS

[Recorded by Jim Ed Brown, Alan Jackson, Nat Stuckey, Conway Twitty, and several others.]
