Trouble In The Henhouse Lyrics

Now you say we're hypocritical, and girls that may be true.

So maybe we'll just mend our ways and start to follow through.

We've seen the light, and we agree it's time to right our wrongs.

The first thing that we're gonna' do is stop buying Dixie Chick songs.

You birds have flown the coop; you've lost your ever-loving minds.

Maybe you should just shut your mouths - maybe now's the time.

'Cause if you'd 'Think It Over,' maybe then you 'Fools...' would see

This is as close to '...Paradise' as you will ever be.

For such a nonjudgmental group of open-minded girls,
You sure have said a mouthful about our little world.
You've been 'A Long Time Gone,' so 'Give It Up and Let us Go.'
We're better off 'Without You'; you're not welcome anymore.
You birds have flown the coop; you've lost your ever-loving minds.
Maybe you should just shut your mouths - maybe now's the time.
'Cause if you'd 'Think It Over,' maybe then you 'Fools...' would see
This is as close to '...Paradise' as you will ever be.

Ain't got time for Dixie Chickens...
Lubbock, Texas is alive and kickin'...
It don't matter what they say...
This town will 'Not Fade Away'...

Now we know that our old airport ain't the biggest one around,
But it sure did do a fine job shipping you straight out of town.
And as far as tribute statues go, I wouldn't hold my breath
Because Buddy is a legend, and you're not even second best.
You birds have flown the coop; you've lost your ever-loving minds.
Maybe you should just shut your mouths - maybe now's the time.
'Cause if you'd 'Think It Over,' maybe then you 'Fools...' would see
This is as close to '...Paradise' as you will ever be.
