She's Looking Better Every Beer

Lyrics: John Shine
Music: John Shine

Well I guess it's been at least an hour, and I didn't plan to stay
I only dropped in to drink a beer, and float off on my way
It was a pale and rather plain girl over in the corner sipping wine
When I did not sit down at her table, she sat down at mine

And she's looking better every beer
Her hair is soft and shiny now, her eyes are bright and clear
How could it be I didn't notice her when I first came in here
Now she's looking better every beer

Well the bar lights and the candles throw a little color on the chin
And two by two the people leave who one by one came in
The jukebox plays and the coke-filled ashtrays warns the time that flies
And every time I drain my mug I can't believe my eyes

She's looking better every beer
Her hair is soft and shiny now, her eyes are bright and clear
How could it be I didn't notice her when I first came in here
Now she's looking better every beer
