Lyrics
I got the honky tonk hiccups
Ready steady go
I got the honky tonk hiccups
Ready steady go
Honky tonk hiccups
Ready steady go
I found the cure on the hardwood floor

When I got home from work
I was feeling pretty fine
'Til I started getting hiccups 'round suppertime
Held my breath 'til I hit the floor
But the hiccups kept coming
Even more more more

I asked my baby to stand up on a chair
And when I wasn't looking
She would give me a scare
I drank a glass of water
And I blew into a bag
But the hiccups kept a-comin
A nag nag nag

I got the honky tonk hiccups
Ready steady go
I got the honky tonk hiccups
Ready steady go
Honky tonk hiccups
Ready steady go
I found the cure on the hardwood floor

Well I was feeling low
But my baby made me go
Down to the honky tonk and hillbilly show
An hour in the line-up
And I finally made the door
But the hiccups kept a-coming
Even more more more

First I heard the music
And then I felt a beat
And that's when I knew
That the hiccups would retreat
I headed for the dance floor
I really did my best
I did The Rump Jump
I guess the whiskey did the rest

I got the honky tonk hiccups
Ready steady go
I got the honky tonk hiccups
Ready steady go
Honky tonk hiccups
Ready steady go
I found the cure on the hardwood floor

Honky tonk hiccups
Ready steady go
I got the honky tonk hiccups
Ready steady go
Honky tonk hiccups
Ready steady go
I found the cure on the hardwood floor
I found the cure on the hardwood floor
The only cure is the hardwood floor
(Hic!)
