The Lyrics

Uh-oh, somebody's gone off the deep end....

Drunk in the alley
Know it ain’t pretty
Peed on a kitty
Won’t be home till three
Making no progress
Out on the highway
Going the wrong way
D'oh, I have to pee!

Earn in the day
Play in the night
I can't rhyme a reason, but I'll be all right
I'm grinning and spinning around is the room

And I'm burning, I'm churning, I'm yearning for brew
I'm lugging, I'm chugging, I'm slugging more brew

Prime effervescence
Limes are in season
Don't need a reason
Ain't no time to slow
Nights are contrasting
Nights are my B-side
Like Jeckyll and Hyde
Why I'll never know

Stern in the day
Turn in the night
Goes on and on, don't care if it's wrong or it's right
I've seen signs that this pleasing is driving my blues...

But I'm drugging, I'm chugging, I'm slugging more brew
I'm lurching, I'm purging, I'm seeing in twos

{Instrumental break: A time for reflection}

Learn in the day
Spurn in the night
I can't soar with eagles by drinking all night
I'm winning and thinning the level of brew

And I'm learning, not yearning, I'm spurning more brew
I'm turning, I'm learning, not yearning for brew
I'm learning, not yearning, I'm spurning more brew
I'm turning, I'm learning, not yearning for brew

This parody is fictional fun and in no way condones driving while drunk or impaired. Always drink responsibly, take a cab or have a designated driver. Or do what I do.....drink at home. :-)

Not a parody I should be reading at 10AM, because now I'm thirsty. 5 bourbons, 5 scotches, and 5 beers for you.

Perhaps FG will "drive you to drink", as she did TT? :-D (you should be so lucky!) Three-pack of Fives from a former Improv Comedy Traffic School instructor.
