So many people talkin' 'bout how much they can drink
Well, I know there's people talkin' 'bout how much they can drink
Well, all I have for breakfast is two spokes in one airplane (yeah, nice too)

I'm waitin' at the stairs, and I'm sure to stone the light
Waitin' for the stair, I'm sure to stone the light
I'm too smashed to go on livin', but I wait in vain to die

(Yeah I'm too frail to brag about it)

[Instrumental]

(Come on, James!)
(You found the note!)
(Go ahead now!)
(Yes, yes...)

I'm too lazy to go out travellin', too mean to stay at home
And when I'm out and drinkin', best leave me alone
Lazy to travel, I'm too mean to stay at home
Well when I'm down drinkin', papa you'd best leave me alone

(Play a little rock, y'all!)

[Instrumental]

(Come on now, man!)

[Instrumental]

(Yes, yes...)

Sorry, sorry, baby, 'cause I know that it's a sin
So, so sorry, I believe that it's a sin
I been out last night baby, tonight I'm gonna have a beer...

Yeah, I'm gonna have one more...
