Country music stars Miranda Lambert and Maren Morris' "Way Too Pretty for Prison" is just too much fun! Listen to the song here!

Country music superstar Miranda Lambert teamed up with fellow hit-maker Maren Morris for “Way Too Pretty For Prison.” The cheeky track is featured on Lambert’s album Wildcard, which dropped on November 1st.

Karen Fairchild [of Little Big Town] and I were having a wine night to talk about The Bandwagon Tour, and I always tell my friends, ‘Don’t leave if you’ve been drinking, because you’re way too pretty for prison,’” Lambert shared with PEOPLE about the inspiration behind “Way Too Pretty For Prison.” “She got a ride home at the end of the night, and the next day I had a write with The Love Junkies (Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna, Liz Rose). I was telling them about our night, and that conversation, and they said, ‘Well that’s what we’re writing today.’ I’m so glad Maren joined me on singing this song. She sang her ass off and it was so fun to have her in the studio.”

Listen to Miranda and Maren muse over what to do with a no-good cheatin’ scoundrel below! 

Story Behind the Song

“Way Too Pretty for Prison” Lyrics

They don’t have rhinestone ball and chains
Lunch  trays don’t come with Chardonnay
The  bars there ain’t got boys to buy us drinks
We’d stick out like two bottled blondes
I must admit it don’t sound fun
For  fifteen girls to have to share one sink

He  cheated, he’s a villain
And you know I’d help you kill him

But  we’re way too pretty for prison
Hard time ain’t our kind of livin’
And I don’t want to talk about
The way those jumpsuits wash us out
We’re  way too pretty for prison

Antifreeze and Gatorade
Arsenic in his lemonade
Takes just one snip to bleed his brakes
But we ain’t gonna do it (She ain’t gonna do it)
Yeah, we’ve been watching too much TV
You ain’t Thelma, I ain’t Louise
But if we ask ’em they’d both agree
We should put him through it (Don’t put him through it)

He cheated, he’s a villain
So let’s hire somebody to kill him

‘Cause we’re way too pretty for prison
Hard time ain’t our kind of livin’
And I don’t want to talk about
The way those jumpsuits wash us out
We’re way too pretty for prison

La de da da da (La de da da da)
La de da da da (La de da da da)
La de da da, la de da da, la de da da da

Well, the state won’t pay for lash extensions
No Sun Tan City, not to mention
That lack of waxing situation
Oh, no

‘Cause we’re way too pretty for prison
Hard time ain’t our kind of livin’, no
And I don’t want to talk about
The way those jumpsuits wash us out
We’re way too pretty for prison

La de da da da (La de da da da)
La de da da da (La de da da da)
La de da da, la de da da, la de da da da

La de da da da
La de da da da
La de da da, la de da da, la de da da da
