DON'T THE GIRLS ALL GET PRETTIER AT CLOSIN' TIME (Thomas Baker-Knight) Mickey Gilley - 1976 Also recorded by: Ralph Emery A-one, a-two, a-one-two-three-go All the girls all get prettier at closin' time They all begin to look like movie stars All the girls all get prettier at closin' time When the change starts taking place It puts a glow on every face Of the fallen angels of the back street bars If I could rate 'em on a scale from one to ten I'm lookin' for a nine, but eight could work right in A few more drinks and I might slip to a five or even four But when tomorrow mornin' comes And I wake up with a number one I swear I'll never do it anymore All the girls all get prettier at closin' time They all begin to look like movie stars All the girls all get prettier at closin' time When the change starts taking place It puts a glow on ev'ry face Of the fallen angels of the back street bars (Instrumental Break) I don't mean to criticize the girls at all 'Cause I know Robert Redford even overhauls An' we all picture in our minds a girl that looks just right Now ain't it funny, ain't it strange How a man's opinion change When he starts to face that lonely night All the girls all get prettier at closin' time They all begin to look like movie stars All the girls all get prettier at closin' time When the change starts taking place It puts a glow on every face Of the fallen angels of the back street bars The fallen angels of those backstreet bars (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2006)
