Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

A drinking song.
Hey, just one more
Hey, for the road

What I like about booze
It makes me tight
Never have just only one
Gonna be blotto tonight...yeah

I'm spilling another beer
Simplest of concepts become unclear
I amuse
That's what I like about booze.

What I like about booze
It really drowns out the pain
When I go home, work, wife's a jerk
Want to go drink again, yeah

It's calling me to the bar
But I got to walk cause they took my car
Cure the blues
That's what I like about booze
That's what I like about booze
That's what I like about booze

SLUUURRRPP! Hey!

What I like about booze
Make my opinions right
Never wanna sober up
Face that awful morning light...Bleahh

I'm waking up on the floor
But you're not too drunk, if you can drink more
I refuse
To give up drinking that booze
It's my life and what I choose
Sometimes I'm seeing in twos
What is that stuff on my shoes?

That's what I like about booze
That's what I bike about looze
That'sh what I hike alout booze
That'sh shwhat I lake m'bout booshe

Hey ur-ur-urrrpp!
Hey ur-ur-ur-brrrrrrffff
Hey oh-oh-oh...plop!

Actually Jeff, I'm more into the coffee house scene now, but if you're here, I'll be happy to record you in exchange for a cup of joe.

Hehe... Johnny, write that parody for real. I'd love to see a parody of that song appear on the front page.
