Shut Up and Show Up

Shut Up and Show Up

I met an old cowboy up in Austin last year
He said I’ll share some wisdom
If you’ll lend me your ear
He said I’ve been a husband
And I’ve been a fool
But you can be both
If you’ll follow these rules

Chorus:
Just shut up and show up
Don’t get drunk and throw up
Don’t do all those things that you do all the time
Just show up and shut up
Don’t be rude or cut up
Show a little respect and she’ll treat you fine

If you’re go to a party and she will be there
Always put on a clean shirt
Run a comb through your hair
Don’t wear your old boots
To a French cafe
And take off your spurs
For a roll in the hay

Chorus:
Just shut up and show up
Don’t get drunk and throw up
Don’t do all those things that you do all the time
Just show up and shut up
Don’t be rude or cut up
Show a little respect and she’ll treat you fine

Always get there on time and remember to smile
Never chase other women
And don’t act like a child
You just let her lead you
Around by the hand
Nod at those big words
That you don’t understand

Chorus:
Just shut up and show up
Don’t get drunk and throw up
Don’t do all those things that you do all the time
Just show up and shut up
Don’t be rude or cut up
Show a little respect and she’ll treat you fine
