  • On liquor I spend my last dime

    Sunday morning, 8am
    Cursing myself again
    Drinking like this one might be my last

    Memories of making jokes
    Too much beer and talk-show hosts
    One of them that's fading fast

    Here's to waking up at night
    Drunk and undressed by the side of the road
    You're still thinking

    That you can't go on like this
    Before I break down
    You keep saying thanks so much, I can't live
    Thanks so much, I've had enough

    Well, it'd do me just fine to make it through the night
    On liquor I spend my last dime

    A worried man drinks a healthy drink
    But he drinks nine or ten until he's done
    Then he'll tell you his life story
    But he won't stop until he's told you and everyone

    Here's to waking up at night
    Drunk and undressed by the side of the road
    You're still thinking

    That you can't go on like this
    Before I break down
    You keep saying thanks so much, I can't live
    Thanks so much, I've had enough

    Well, it'd do me just fine to make it through the night
    On liquor I spend my last dime

    Memories of making jokes
    Too much beer and talk-show hosts
    One of them that's fading fast

    Here's to waking up at night
    Drunk and undressed by the side of the road
    You're still thinking

    That you can't go on like this
    Before I break down
    You keep saying thanks so much, I can't live
