The Lyrics

Lyrics by David Bogart, Inspiration by alcohol...getting ugly people laid for centuries.
Drinks are poured for me, how much more can I drink, when will i stop
I may get shitfaced, from all this beer. I shouldn't drink another babe, maybe not.
I may slip off while i'm drinking this brew. Up on this stool and I'm feeling...

I drown another mai tai and i choke, try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, its clear, that I have had way too much damn beer.
Mai tai and I choke, I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, its clear, that I have had way too much damn beer.

I may appear to be free, but I'm just a prisoner of these suds.
I may seem alright and sober as I leave. but my soberness is a front, just a front. HEY
I may slip off while I'm drinking this brew. I start to drool, cuz im feeling....

I drown another mai tai and I choke, try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, its clear, that I have had way too much damn beer.
Mai tai and I choke, I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, its clear, that I have had way too much damn beer.

Here is my confession, beer is my obsession.
Boy I need your suds. Your Bud, Whiskey and such.
With all my might I try, not to get a D U I , D U I
I may slip off while I'm drinking this brew. While I'm drinking this brew babe!
Up on this stool, cuz I'm feeling....

I drown another mai tai and I choke,YAH! Try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, its clear, that I have had way too much damn beer.
Mai tai and I choke, I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, its clear, that I have had way too much damn beer. (Your bud, whiskey, and such)
I drown another mai tai and I choke, try to walk away and I stumble
Though i try to hide it, its clear, that I have had way too much damn beer.
Mai tai and I choke, I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, its clear, that I have had way too much damn beer.
"I Try" Lyrics by David Bogart 2003
