Track Name: Who Told The Jukebox?
Nobody’s gonna leave this barroom
Until I find the mangy cur
Who gets his jollies playing DJ
While I just sit here hurting over her
Every three minutes thirty seconds
They pour another round of blue
I got an earful full of lonesome
And you all got some explaining to do

Chorus:
Who told the jukebox I was lonely?
Who told the jukebox there was hurtin going on?
Who told that ugly blinking box of flipping cards
That it could break my heart and then make me sing along?
Go put on something you can twerk to
And leave those good old songs alone
This was a real nice pity party
Until you put the music on

You see I told no one about her
Because I knew this day would come
And I don’t need you to tell me different
While I pretend I don’t know what went wrong
What’s the world come to when a fella
Can’t beat his own self up here in peace?
I do hope you folks brought a toothbrush
Cause you ain’t leaving till you answer me

Chorus:
Who told the jukebox I was lonely?
Who told the jukebox there was hurtin going on?
Who told that ugly blinking box of flipping cards
That it could break my heart and then make me sing along?
Patsy tells Ray, and Ray tells Willlie
Willie tells Frank, and so it goes
Why even try to hide a heartache?
Because the jukebox always knows
Why even try to hide a heartache?
Because the jukebox always knows

How come the jukebox always know?
