Storyline

Jake, an aspiring singer from Tennessee comes to New York City and finds herself working in club owned by a sleazy guy named Freddy. It seems Jake is under contract, and Freddy doesn't want to let her go. So Jake makes a bet; that she can train anyone to sing, and if she does, he lets her out of her contract, and the guy she has to train is a cabbie named Nick. They go to her house in Tennessee, and Jake tries to teach him, but it's very tough. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Nick Martinelli: [singing "Drinkenstein"] Budweiser you created a monster / and they call him Drinkenstein / And the tavern down the street is the labba-tor-eye-ee / where he makes the transformation all the time / And a stein of Dr. Buuuud is a pint of monster blood / and it does effect me different every time / Budweiser you created a monster / and they call me Drinkenstein / And they call me Drinkenstein / I'm Drinkenstein! / I'm Drinkenstein!
