Drinker's Lament
Verse 1
Fistful of dollars, can’t
Make me change my mind, but a
Ounce or two of medicine &
I’m feeling fine
When you’re feelin’ down & out
It’s hard to unwind
Bring ale to my side
For the rest of my time
Chorus 1
There’s tradition when drinking with your peers
Can’t see no harm in sharing a few beers
Wine’s all good when your keg’s run dry
A good stout or porter brings a tear to my eye
Verse 2
A round of whiskeys
To go with our beers
Drinking up my troubles, but
Keeping my mind clear
Lightning in a bottle, if
I get caught
I’ll be explaining to the police
Why we fought
Chorus 2
There’s tradition when drinking with your peers
Can’t see no harm in sharing a few beers
Wine’s a welcome change at the table for holidays, but
I like hops & malt to lift me from my haze
Verse 3
Let me tell you a story ‘bout
the first time
‘Came home 2 after midnight
Feeling fine
Muzz said “what’s wrong with you?”
“Having too much fun?”
But my shirt was inside out and
I had nowhere to run
Chorus 3
There’s tradition when sharing with your peers
Can’t see no harm in drinking a few beers
Wine’s all well when you’re wearing a suit & tie, but
But me I’ll take an IPA until the day I die
