The Lyrics

(Ernie is lying on his bed drunk). Bert: Ernie! Didn't you get a liver transplant recently? Ernie: Yeeeees..... Bert: Well, I have a song to sing!
(Intro Music).

Bert: Ernie I know you want to have some fun, in your tub with your rubber duck. But, you have been unemployed and out of luck.

You always stood right by my side, you always snickered and hurt my pride. But, you have been doing something that hurts your insides.....

The stuff on the shelf out of everyone, the stuff you can't buy till your twenty-one, what you really need right now is a good detox! Please...

Chorus: Ernie don't drink! Please go to detox. Ernie please think! And, then go to detox. Cause' that drinking you do is WRECKING YOUR LIVER! Will wreck your liver Ernie, oh yes!

Gordon is outside in his car, he will drive us straight to the ER. And, after you have come down we will get you some help.

Ernie, Ernie, if only you could understand. This drinking will not make you a man! I'm gonna tell you right now, it's against Islam (holds up Koran) against Islaaaam! PLEASE......

(Chorus repeated, then bridge in music shows Bert in a headscarf wailing).

Bert: Please go to the cab right now Ernie. This drinkings wrecking your liver!

(Shows Ernie being driven to ER, then in AA meetings and finally back home to Bert).

I didn't know Bert and Ernie were Muslims! :D

Agri, Bert only thinks he's a Muslim because of all that Afghan poppy he's been smokin'. (And you thought their problem was being gay, not substance abuse!)
