Lyrics

I learned how to make love from the movies
Catch me all waitressin' up Ruby Tuesday’s
Says he wants to buy me and a white milkshake
I’ll serve you up a special side of heartbreak

Betty Lou’s working down at the Friendly’s
Met a millionaire while she was serving him pancakes
She served her baby a Coke and went outside for a smoke
Before you kiss the alligator don’t ask to see him later

I learned how to make love from the movies
Catch me all waitressin' up Ruby Tuesday’s
Says he wants to buy me and a white milkshake
I’ll serve you up a special side of heartbreak

She said, "Lana Rey, you gotta do what I say,
My man’s sending his buddy Ray over your way,
He knows you’re bad to the bone and that you never come home,
But he saw you in a picture and he really wants to meet ya,
So if you see him, just do what I say,"
I said, "Okay,"

I learned how to make love from the movies
Catch me all waitressin' up Ruby Tuesday’s
Says he wants to buy me and a white milkshake
I’ll serve you up a special side of heartbreak

Now he’s my rodeo king and I’m his Alabama
Diamond horseshoe ring and I know how my man-uh
Likes it, likes it, likes it, ah
