The Lyrics

One night I was chugging down a "40"
I had the whole night before me
and I was getting primed to head out to the club.
Because the drinks are so expensive
I can hardly afford them
so by the time I get there I try to be half drunk
But sometimes I go to far and I drank up my home bar
Drank all the Jack, the Tequila and the Gin

Man you guess what I did then

I went HO chasin' I did some illegal racing
and I finally lost that cop out on highway 2-1-2
I passed out at Denny's paid my tab with pennies
and I barely made it to the bathroom
and as I hugged that porcelain throne just throwing up
I felt like I was dying.

When I was young I was the smart one
now I'm just the drunk one
who chases easy girls and hides out from the cops.
My reputation does bring envy but there is so much more in me
but you can only see that when I'm sobered up
Lately I been thinkin' I should give up all this drinkin'
find a good girl, settle down down and buy a home

Hell, that thought didn't last long

Cause I went HO chasin' I did some illegal racing
and I finally lost that cop out on highway 2-1-2
I passed out at Denny's paid my tab with pennies
and I barely made it to the bathroom
and as I hugged that porcelain throne just throwing up
I felt like I was dying.

Now the morale of it is
it don't take an eternity
to get your life back where it should be
So I shouldn't drink again
I shouldn't drink again
But I got drunk again

And I went HO chasin' I did some illegal racing
But I could not shake that cop and he put me drunk ass in jail
and it so scary when your thought as sexy by the inmate sharing a cell with you
And as I hugged that metal toilet dry heaving
I felt like I was dying

I felt like I was dying

I even started crying

I felt like I was dying

Were you drunk when you wrote this? Kudos, the OS was a powerful piece but I'll give the props anyway.
