The Lyrics

This is song 3 from my parody album, "Slippery When Drunk". Songs 1 and 2 are "Pukin' on the Stairs" (Living on a Prayer) and "Dad's Medicine" (Bad Medicine). All songs will be parodies of songs by Bon Jovi.Parental advisory.... song contains mild language used for context only, but more importantly deals with getting pretty drunk. Please do not read if you think you may have a problem with either.
I don't need no glasses
To sip on no wine
I don't need no shaker
To mix in no ice
I don't need no tonic
I don't need no new limes
I just need my bottle
End everything inside

Well I know it's only tuesday
And my baby don't approve
But I don't really care now
Telling me what I should do

Now there's a million bottles: vodka, scotch and rum of white,
But I only need one two six
To get me through tonight
And I say baby can you tell me
Just what's happenin?
I'm fuckin' drunk, yes I've been swimming in gin (swimmin in gin)
Is that you honey or what the cat just dragged in?
Oh I'm sorry babe, i've just been swimmin' in gin

Is it rright for both 'f our parents
Who drink there beer of lite
Or cassualy drink wisky
till theyre faces both turn white
Or drink their smernoff coolers
At their big and fancy home
You can drink until you pass out
If it's something socsiable

Or is it right to o-pen
A bottle every Knight
And polish of the sucker
Till you're out just like a fuckin' Light

Oh baybe can't you tell me
just where hell i been
i've got my tongue stuck in the bottle again
oh is it wensday morning oh the bathtub is fin
I no im not durnk, i know I'm swimmin in gin

Just read this again for the first time in a long while... Hopefully everyone noticed the spelling was getting worse as he was getting more wasted?

Jeez, even I find this really funny and (short of) clever though I don't drink at all :)! An' yeah, I noticed the spelling, I was like: Wth?, before I got the point.
