The Lyrics

Work in retail long enough, nothing will surprise you. Especially certain forms of retail...
Drunk, drunk is this jerk
Drunk is this stupid perp
Missing ev'ry step
Awkward propulsion
Hates me, "Make me cider!"
Said with his bad breath

Beer shop's where I'm hired
This prick won't get shit

I, I can handle
This fool who wobbles
Isn't new, old shit
Know when he'll tumble
Into all the gin

Beer shop's where I'm hired
Seen it all, right

Snobs demanding wine
Kids who want liquor
Just think "This again?"
Beer shop's where I'm hired
Almost a rhythm
Rigamarole, cinch
To stop their nonsense
With eyes closed, I'd bet

Beer shop's where I'm hired
Been through much worse shit

They're stumbling through the parks
They'll leave in a cop car

I'm probably one of the very few people who can think of this song and not immediately think of House, which used it as the theme. Wild guess, but it's probably because I never watched House. What do I think of instead, you ask? Why, "Written in the Stars" by Tinie Tempah, specifically the line "I cried teardrops over the Massive Attack". And now you know...the rest of the story.

Nah, I'm just drunk, I stole some piss from my old man (honestly took me a second to make the link between your comment and my parody's title, well done!)
