The Lyrics

Another night on the town that I don't seem to remember clearly.
Just yesterday evening I went out on the town
Think I crossed over to the danger zone
Woke up this morning feeling dried up and brown
Just can't remember how I made it home

CHORUS
Oh, I drank fire and I got pain
I drank rum and whiskey, even French champagne
I drank beer and bourbon, tell me who's to blame
I got drunk and threw up again

Won't you look down upon me Jesus, help my wobbly legs to stand
Bloodshot eyes for another day
My head is aching oh, alcohol should be banned
Can't believe I'm breathing and feel so bad

CHORUS
Oh, I drank fire and I got pain
I drank rum and whiskey, even French champagne
I drank beer and bourbon, tell me who's to blame
I got drunk and threw up again

Now I'm hanging on tight to the porcelain bowl, the room is spinning round
Lord knows when up she blows it'll turn you inside out
There's friends of mine on the telephone line got a party going down
What can I say "I'm on my way" and party on till dawn

CHORUS
Oh, I drank fire and I got pain
I drank rum and whiskey, even French champagne
I drank beer and bourbon, tell me who's to blame
I got drunk and threw up again
And I swear I'll never drink booze well just one more time again

I thought this was pretty good imagery here. Enough to make a person avoid the situation, hopefully.

Pretty nice job, although I would like to see the repetitive chorus lyrics varied for the parody. I give it "4-4-4".
