The Lyrics

Not based on actual events...that I know of, anyway.
I think I just crashed the Jeep again
I am not quite sure, can't see shite
All I see is a big blurr
I see lots of flames
Everything's all fuzzy tonight

Now I'm really fucked
My licence will be stripped away
That's what I get for driving plastered
Cause when I pound the booze away
I drive reckless
I tend to drive reckless
I know I drive reckless

So the next day, I am chuggin' some beer
Some git gets in my face
Thought I could deal with this twat, but he's so big
My vision lies again

Now I'm really fucked
This guy will pound my arse today
What I get for being smashed
Cause when I slam the pints away
I act reckless
I lose my thought process
And then I act reckless

[instrumental break of guy-beating-the-shit-outta-me-ness]

I'm so dumb
I know that when I get drunk
I do these things that can fuck me up
I really don't think that much

Ev'rytime I'm pissed
I'm in regret the whole next day
That and court come hand-in-hand
Cause when I chug the sauce away
I am reckless
I'm always reckless
But booze is so precious

[outro of me-stupidly-guzzling-away-again-ness]
"Sauce" is slang for beer.

*Gets image of beer in beards and a crashed ZZ Top car*

Probably the most epic of ZZ Top songs but that's really not saying much. Way to recklessly write about an unusual topic for you.

My comment was deleted for some reason, not sure why. . .overall good idea, but there were inconsistencies in this one like choosing to cuss in spots, and cleaning it up in others and a tad bit of repetition that took away from your overall achievement

This parody would probably get an ovation at the bar right before closing time. I wouldn't want to be out on the street driving afterward, though. :-)

I'm totally with Dave on my critique of this one.
