​Golden Teardrops

This song is by The Flamingos and appears on the compilation album The Best of the Flamingos (1990) and on the compilation album The Best of the Flamingos (1990).

And the whiskey was free
If that ol' car in the parking lot
Drove home automatically
If every night 'neath the honky tonk lights
Didn't start those memories
Wouldn't it be a wonderful world
For somebody just like me
How long can a girl keep goin'
Like every day's the last
I've paid off the rent and the government
Maybe I could pay off the past
If the jukebox took teardrops
And the whiskey was free
If that ol' car in the parking lot
Drove home automatically
If every night 'neath the honky tonk lights
Didn't start those memories
Wouldn't it be a wonderful world
For somebody just like me
Wouldn't I be on easy street
Livin' this life of mine
I could keep right on till the hurt's all gone
And it wouldn't cost me a dime
If the jukebox took teardrops
And the whiskey was free
If that ol' car in the parking lot
Drove home automatically
If every night 'neath the honky tonk lights
Didn't start those memories
Wouldn't it be a wonderful world
For somebody just like me
If the jukebox took teardrops
And the whiskey was free
And the whiskey was free
If that ol' car in the parking lot
