It was a Friday night, I worked a double shift
Dead as a dog and just as stiff
My girlfriends threw me in the car
And we headed down to Cash’s Bar

Still in my nurse's uniform
Up walks this man in beautiful form
Nothing but trouble I’ve seen it before
So keep on walking pal there’s the door

He tried to buy me a nickel beer
I said, Jim Beam. Ain't no Blue Ribbon here
He said, I recognize that Texas twang
And a Texas girl is just my thang

He said, I'm from Texas, too
I said, Is that right? Show me the proof
Pulls out his wallet and what do I see
Mr. Pretend Texas got a Kentucky ID

Threw up my hands said wait a minute Hon
Lord, please tell me you’re twenty-one
He said I’m just a few months shy
This license belongs to that other guy

I thought this poor boy has got no game
So I gave him the wrong number
And my "trouble" name
He reached out and shook my hand
Pleasure to meet you Roxanne

Lights come up, closed down the bar
Gather up the girls, head to the car
Designated driver, they throw me the key
Turn it over the tanks on E

Stomped back inside looking for a phone
Young buck says, Is something wrong?
Got a car full of girls drunk off their ass
Not a penny between us and out of gas

He reached in his pocket
Tried to give me a twenty
Shook my head said
I’m ain't taking your money
Oh yes you are, and he put it in my hand
And time stopped, my heart dropped
Oh, damn, I think I’m going to marry this man

And thanks to that twenty
We’re celebrating our thirty
And that’s the ballad of Gigi and Bubbles
Down and dirty
