The Lyrics

Gettin' down to the dregs. Almost done.
I've got every reason on earth to be broke
Cause I spent all my money on that coke
If I had some self-control
I'd get myself out of this hole
But I can't so I'll buy instead

I got a monkey on my back that's bigger than a fort
I can't talk to people when I snort
If I could see a way
I'd get myself into N.A.
But I can't so I'll buy instead

Don't want to die when I'm in my prime
But I'm high almost all the time
I'd like to tell myself I'm getting poor
But I'll be fine after I score

But till I do you'd better hide your stereo
I just might need to hock it for some blow
Yes, I'm gonna get me some more
If I have to go and rob another liquor store
So till then I'll buy instead

If I could get my way, I'd prevent lots of laughs today, but I can't, so I'll laugh so hard I'll cry instead!
