The Lyrics

Growing thirsty at the sight of empties
In the rubbish can here in the kitchen
Messy garbage now has stained 'em
But, at least my lips have drained 'em,
Every drop
The color of forgetting comes in amber
Like my life, it's on the rocks
Not yet midnight, but, I'll raise the glass
With a toast to all the liquid memories

It's Been A Good Year With Four Roses
Many jiggers I've sucked dry
And if I broke no boozin' record
They can't say I didn't try
I ain't ready for rehab
Never mind how red my nose is
I'll just have one more little dab
It's Been A Good Year With Four Roses

I am barely still erect and balanced
On this shaky stool, here in the bar room
That's a free one, bottle's empty
Hopin' that like Humpty Dumpty,
I don't fall
Let me treasure every fuzzy little moment
As a cold December ends,
Haven't made a resolution yet,
Just this not so clever line that comes to me

It's Been A Good Year With Four Roses
Many jiggers I've sucked dry
And if I broke no drinkin' record
They can't say I didn't try
I ain't ready for rehab
Never mind how red my nose is
Just pour last call, I'll pay the tab
It's Been A Good Year With Four Roses

It's Been A Good Year With Four Roses
