about

All three Hotsies have worked in the service industry as bartenders, waitresses, etc. This song was born from a little post shift drinking and shenanigans (allegedly). Amanda was hanging out after closing at a bar where she worked and the concept and some lyrics came to her. She wrote them down, and handed them to Jenny saying, Here....do that thing you do where you make this a song. So Jenny did just that...a few minor chords and supplemental lyrics later, and Gin Makes Me Sin was birthed. And Patrick Hughes on trumpet is just the perfect garnish on this little musical cocktail!

lyrics

Turn down the lights and lock the door
We've been up since early morn
Today is gone say good bye
Tonight this night owl's gonna fly

Gonna kick up a mighty storm
A second wind has just been born
Line 'em up light 'em up 'cause I'm feeling lucky

Wine is fine for ladies who lunch
Vodka's smooth but don't pack no punch
Tequila will steal your soul, not going down that road again
A little scotch to ease my mind
I ain't looking to be refined
And gin...gin makes me sin

Ahhh

I feel your eyes undress me slowly
You're the kind of trouble I've been looking to know me, won't you
Buy a girl a drink and say hello (how ya doin', baby)
No telling where this night will go

Gonna kick up a mighty storm
A second wind has just been born
Line 'em up light 'em up 'cause I'm feeling lucky

Wine is fine for ladies who lunch
Vodka's smooth but don't pack no punch
Tequila will steal your soul, not going down that road again
A little scotch to ease my mind
I ain't looking to be refined
And gin...gin makes me sin

Ah, Ah, Ah, Ooh

Juniper's so hypnotizing
Really gets your spirit rising
One more sip and we'll be in the stars
Hazy bliss a stranger's kiss
Pull me int your abyss
Floating, falling far from who we are

Wine is fine for ladies who lunch
Vodka's smooth but don't pack no punch
Tequila will steal your soul, not going down that road again
A little scotch to ease my mind
I ain't looking to be refined
And gin...gin makes me sin

Gin...gin makes me sin
Ahh
Gin
Gin makes me
