When Pitchfork asked Del Rey "what's coming next?", she responded saying "I've got a couple of other tracks. I've got this weird track called 'Bartender' that doesn't belong to a record yet" and mentioned that she wishes to create a music video for the song.

Lyrics

All the ladies of the canyon
Wearing black to the house parties
Wine is flowing with Bacardi
But sometimes girls just want to have fun
The poetry inside of me is warm like a gun

I bought me a truck in the middle of the night
It'll buy me a year if I play my cards right
Photo free exits from baby's bedside
'Cause they don't yet know what car I drive
I am just tryna keep my love alive
With my bartender hold me all night
Bartender, our love's alive, baby remember
I'm not drinking wine, but the cherry coke
You serve is fine our love's sweet up and on the vine
Bartender, bart-tender

All the ladies of the canyon
Wearing white for the tea parties
Playing games of reputation
Meditating in the garden
And I love the little games that we play
From the valley to the beach
The day is done, I grab my keys

I bought me a truck in the middle of the night
It'll buy me a year if I play my cards right
Photo free exits from baby's bedside
'Cause they don't yet know what car I drive
I am just tryna keep my love alive
With my bartender hold me all night
Bartender, our love's alive, baby remember
I'm not drinking wine but the cherry coke
You serve is fine and our love's sweet and up on the vine
Bart-tender, bart-tender, bart-tender
Ah-ah-ah-ah

I bought me a truck in the middle of the night
60 mph, on PCH drive, head along Long Beach to New Port
As I don't yet know where I reside
60 miles from the last place I hide with my bart-tender
Hold me all night, bart-tender, keep love alive, bart-tender
