about

This is a country ballad that tells a story reenacted in honkie tonks everywhere on a nightly basis. ). My guess is you know who this song is about and you are just not telling!

This is song is too real for its own good. It tells a story that is both vivid in character and a caricature of ourselves. It is both pensive and humorous at the same time. Although Mad Dog Friedman has written over 40 songs, this represents his first real country song. Too find out more about the music of Mad Dog Friedman, please check his web site.

lyrics

Ass Squeezing Time (At the Bar Double L)

Verse 1
When she makes that switch
From red wine to water
Then she makes that call
To her grown up/ daughter
Needs that one slow dance
The band plays so well
She’ll get what she wants
Wants to make a deal
The more her heart breaks
The more love he’ll feel
It's ass squeezing time
At the Bar Double L
It's ass squeezing time
Don't you go and tell

Verse 2
When he's been a crying
In his beer all night
It’s all gone so wrong
But he's feel ing right
Drags her to the floor
Just to dance one more
He holds her real tight
Working on the deal
The more his heart breaks
The more love she’ll feel
It's ass squeezing time
At the Bar Double L
It's ass squeezing time
No one's gonna tell

Verse 3
(Harp Solo by Mad Dog Friedman)
The more his heart breaks
The more love she’ll feel
It's ass squeezing time
Who’s a gonna tell
It's ass squeezing time
At the Bar Double L

Verse 4
She takes off his hat
Likes him more like that
He drinks up his beer
Closing time draws /near
She squeezes his hand
Whispers in his ear
He's the luck…..y man
Gets to close his deal
The more their hearts break
The more love they’ll feel
It's ass squeezing time
At the Bar Double L
It's ass squeezing time
No one’s ‘round to tell

Tag
It's ass squeezing time
At the Bar Double L
It's ass squeezing time
Someone’s bound to tell
