The Lyrics

Every conversation
Takes on someones fault
And all our altercations
Come screaming to a halt

I see that your a bit absurd
To all my ideas made so clear
I feel that your an ostridge
That hides his head in beer
I just wish there was 'lipo' for fat between the ears

Empty cans of liqour
Causes imperfect thought
Liquid confrontations
I'm afraid that's why we've fought

You say it's not the reason
I says it's common sense
We just can't find agreement
with your malted breath
We all drink a different beverage
Drinking in pretense

Drink up proud, say it stinks
You keep pissin' as much as you drink
It's too late when you die
To admit it's wrong to drink and drive

So you open up a bottle
Between the redlight and the green
You only sacrifice full throttle
Is the ambulance on scene?

So Don't yield to temptation
You sometimes see as great
Life may have a new perspective
On a different day
And if you don't give up, and don't give in
You may just be O.K.

Drink up proud, say it stinks
You keep pissin' as much as you drink
It's too late when you die
To admit it's wrong to drink and drive

I wasn't there that evening
When my Father passed away
I didn't get to tell him
All the things I had to say

I think I felt his spirit
Later that same year
I'll try and stop the bottle
In my baby's new born years
I just wish there was 'lipo' for fat between the ears

Drink up proud, say it stinks
You keep pissin' as much as you drink
It's too late when you die
To admit it's wrong to drink and drive

Like I always say: "Space between the ears: The final frontier." (Oops, I did it again: Shameless plug for "Space Between the Ears Oddity.")
