I need a little help with the lyrics to "Beer Run". Here they are in the entirety, except for the parts I put a sad face :( next to. Those I can't make out for sure. Does anyone know?

Title: Beer Run

“B” DOUBLE “E” DOUBLE ARE YOU IN HUM
AY EE
LOOK OUT

TWENTY-FIVE MINUTES PAST QUITTIN’ TIME
SEVEN OF US CRAMMED INTO THAT TRUCK OF MINE
PAYIN’ NO ATTENTION TO THEM HIGHWAY SIGNS, DOIN’ NINETY MILE AN HOUR TOWARD THE COUNTY LINE OH
QUICK SACK TWELVE-PACK BACK AGAIN
WELL IT’S A “B” DOUBLE “E” DOUBLE ARE YOU IN OH

MY BUDDIES AND THEIR BABIES LETTIN’ DOWN THEIR HAIR
AS LONG AS WE’RE TOGETHER IT DON’T MATTER WHERE (YEAH)
AIN’T GOT A LOTTA MONEY BUT WE JUST DON’T CARE
KNOWIN’ HALF THE FUN IS IN THE GETTIN’ THERE
aztec :( LONG-NECKS PAYCHECK SPENT
OH IT’S A “B” DOUBLE “E” DOUBLE ARE YOU IN

OH I CAN’T STOP THINKIN’ WHAT THE HELL THEY WERE DRINKIN’ WHEN THEY MADE THIS COUNTY DRY
I GOT A WEEK-LONG THIRST AND TO MAKE IT WORSE
LORD IT’S MY TURN TO DRIVE

(HERE IT COMES)

OH LAUGHIN’ AND A-BRAGGIN’ AND A-CARRYIN’ ON
WE LOADED UP THE WAGONS AND WE HEADED HOME (YEAH)
I GUESS HALF A DOZEN CASES DOESN’T LAST THAT LONG
COME TOMORROW MORNIN’ IT’LL BE ALL GONE, THEN IT’S
TURN-AROUND LEAVE-TOWN sounds again :(
LIKE A “B” DOUBLE “E” DOUBLE ARE YOU IN
HEY LIKE A “B” DOUBLE “E” DOUBLE ARE YOU IN

HEY
HEY COME ON GARTH LET’S GET IN THE TRUCK
OK
BUT I’M DRIVIN’

-----------

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Yes, I thought it was "Sounds of ..." or "South of ...", but "gain" doesn't make sense. I'm still working on it. If I figure it out, I'll post it up.

Let me know if you need help for anything else.
Are you a sinfer or something since this lyrics are so important?

Actually, I work with a karaoke company decyphering song lyrics. They send me everything they can't figure out, and for that song we're unsure of those two verses (it's for the on-screen lyrics for the singer).

The official title of the song is (has a subtitle):

Beer Run (“B” Double “E” Double Are You In)

So, I think those would be the same as the lyrics.

I asked Kent Blazy (one of the co-writers of the song) to eliminate all confusion.

Quick Sack is a convenience store

Aztec is a type of beer

Kent said he had never heard of Aztec but Garth and Kim Williams (Co-writer) knew what it was.

Hello Pj
Are Kent Blazy a friend of yours???

If you see him again....tell him he geo a lot of sonwriting fans here in Norway.
( Garth is the best but he wouldnt have been where he is today without some of the best helpers in the world )

I wouldn't say Kent's a friend if mine, but I did see him with the other songwriters at the Bluebird last Friday. I had asked him but forgot to post earlier.

I don't know if this has been posted anywhere else or not, but I'll put my 7 cents in. I have been pondering over this ever since Beer Run came out. I was pretty sure of all the lyrics except the "Sound..." part. When I watched the CMAs, I expected to be able to figure it out, but still nothing. HOWEVER, today I was listening to it and it made since. It IS "Sounds again"! Think about it without the melody... "Turn around, leave town... sounds again like a beer run." Then when I listened another time I was (pretty) sure of it. ;)
What do ya think?
