Lyrics
Everybody there was Drinkin' Martinis but me Chuck Hughes ASCAP

I went to a bar just the other night
To check out a few of my friends
I'm just an everyday workin' guy and I can't always follow the trends
I stepped up and ordered up a shot and a beer
But the bartender acted like she didn't hear
I had 20 bucks that I just couldn't seem to spend
The waitress there called me a square
The cats playin' pool called me a fool
I couldn't figure out what the trouble could be
Then I began to see

Everybody there was drinkin' martinis but me
Every time I'd say Hi they'd get up and start to leave
I felt like mud, drinkin' a bud
Threw out a line, but it was a dud
Everybody yhere was drinkin' martinis but me

They're in a cute little glass on a stem that says “please try me”
But I took a little sip one time and I thought it was slimey
A funny little drink, shiny and cold, served in a glass that's hard to hold
But it sure looks good just sittin' there wet and shiny
They're not long as a beer, or quick as a shot, or nearly as hip as a single malt scotch
For a workin' guy they sure cost a lot
And I can't buy many with the money I got
