The Lyrics

Almost a true tale. About both my ex's.
Tough, I'm on the wagon live life on tea
I frolicked in my younger years with a drink called J&B
Drank from bags of paper, loved that awful stuff
Till I just couldn't drink no more, I guess I'd had enough

Rough, I'm on the wagon, live life on tea
'Twas every day I wound up pissed and spoke so slurredly
Tough, I'm on the wagon live life on tea
I frolicked in my younger years with a drink called J&B

Together we would travel, my old best friend and I
She would give me confidence, I never questioned why
Every social function, and every good excuse
Needed one or two in me before I could get loose

Rough, I'm on the wagon, live life on tea
'Twas every day I wound up drunk and had the floor hit me
Tough, I'm on the wagon live life on tea
I frolicked in my younger years with a drink called J&B

Brain cells gone forever, lost more than several days
Workplace lies and DUI's become a blurry haze
One dark night it happened, my woman said so long
It finally came clear to me just what the hell was wrong

Rough, I'm on the wagon, live life on tea
'Twas every day I wound up smashed and sang a bit off-key
Tough, I'm on the wagon live life on tea
I frolicked in my younger years with a drink called J&B

No longer drowned in sorrow, of both of them I'm free
I no longer had to drink till she looked good to me
Without my life long friend, I could face myself
I took that evil dragon and I put it on the shelf

Rough, I'm on the wagon, live life on tea
Now every day I wake up glad and write a parody
Tough, I'm on the wagon live life on tea
I frolicked in my younger years with a drink called J&B
Slurrrp.

A sobering PSA of the evils of drink. Do miss the pink elephants dancing on the ceiling, though.

Rick, I can honestly say that I have not enjoyed a parody so much in a long time, yet felt sort or morose as well! Execllent!

A little too close to real life to be funny, but very well done regardless!

Aw, man! Talk about bad timing! I just posted a tribute to my favorite Amiright song titles, and this title is better than the Rick song I mentioned in it! And the dovetailing with some people's thoughts that "Puff" is about pot makes it even better.
