MORNING MARGARITAS

In the peak of my February darkness
I knew I had to find the great escape
Tequila had been kind to me, it helped me though the night
I woke up with a taste for more and more I did not fight
When those Morning Margaritas treat you right

I know by now I should know better
Gettin’ old don’t always make you wiser
Why save all the greatest thrills for when the sun goes down?
Give yourself a fighting chance to sleep right through the night
When those Morning Margaritas treat you right

Good morning, morning, morning, morning morn
Good morning, morning, morning, morning morn
When those Morning Margaritas hit you right

Sorry you are under so much pressure
Workin’ hard don’t always lead to pleasure
The voice of reason’s off the air, and satan’s on the mic
Wake up at the crack of ice, sometimes can feel so right
When those Morning Margaritas hit you right

Good morning, morning, morning, morning morn
Good morning, morning, morning, morning morn
When those Morning Margaritas hit you right

IF YOU’RE GONNA RAISE A DRUNK

Oh yeah it’s a real hard job; a real hard job
Cause if you’re gonna raise a drunk you might as well do it right
Teach him how to laugh and to always be polite
Make people smile and have a beautiful night
Cause if you’re gonna raise a drunk
You might as well do it right

Teach him how to get home quiet, take off his shoes
Know when to shut his mouth so he don’t look like a fool
Oh yeah it’s a real hard job, a real hard job

And when the summer comes I like that beer by my side
Just to keep things moving along
A couple of mai tais and a Pu Pu Platter
At that place with the dragon in front
I like that frozen margarita while fightin’ with the mariachi band
Somewhere in San Francisco

Teach him how to get home quiet, take off his shoes
Know when to shut his mouth so he don’t look like a fool
Oh yeah it’s a real hard job, a real hard job

And when the summer comes I like that beer by my side
Just to keep things moving along
A couple of mai tais and a Pu Pu Platter
At that place with the dragon in front
I like that frozen margarita while dancin’ with the mariachi band
Somewhere in San Francisco

Cause if you’re gonna raise a drunk you might as well do it right
Teach him how to laugh and to always be polite
Make people smile and have a beautiful night
If you’re gonna raise a drunk
You might as well do it right

Oh yeah it’s a real hard job; a real hard job
Oh yeah it’s a real hard job
Oh yeah it’s a real real real real real hard job

I DRANK TOO MUCH AGAIN

Well the trouble came in the early morn’
Didn’t have much to be thankful for
So I tried my best to leave the bed
Take a pack of wild horses just to hold my head
And it flowed to me like water
A sympathy I could barter
Oh, I Drank Too Much Again

Simple times I remember well
But when I really think it through you know it’s hard to tell
Why not remember the best of times
And all that petty bull just leave it all behind
And it made the day get better
Like the comfort from your love letter
Oh, I drank too much again

Oh, I drank too much again
I didn’t mean to do it
I tried my best to get through it
Oh I drank too much again

Well I promised myself that I’d try to behave
But then the day was hell and the night time came
Another chance another promise caved
You know I’d try it all again if I could find my way
But you know my love I’m a fighter
Things are bound to get brighter
Oh, I drank too much again

Oh, I drank too much again
I didn’t mean to do it
I tried my best to get through it
Oh I drank too much again

When the comfort’s found I hope it’s here to stay
And all that pain you suffered will just melt away
Nightmares turn to fairy tales
And may that story unwind for a good long spell
And you might as well enjoy it
Don’t find the need to destroy it
Oh, I drank too much again

Oh, I drank too much again
I didn’t mean to do it
I tried my best to get through it
Oh, I drank too much again
Oh, I drank too much again

TRUE TONIGHT

Every time I try I get just what I want
The failure I had to have was just to prove a point
Wanna be with you now in the arms of victory
The world is too damn easy swear it’s boring me

Now the cattle’s corralled and all the butter’s drawn
Got too much money gonna last too long
Wanna feel like a crowd about to riot some
And I’m gonna be True Tonight

You kinda over-reacted when we stole your car
We only smashed the side door into the old man’s barn
Everybody’s mad at me for one thing or the other
I like to push all the buttons of my sisters and my brothers

Now my baby’s started talkin’ and the catcher’s in the rye
The child was confused we told him many lies
Think you had enough of me hold off until dawn
Cause I’m gonna be true tonight

And I’m gonna be truer than a scary state trooper
Pulling you over for your latest drunken stupor
One night to prove it then I’m back to tellin’ lies
Cause I’m gonna be true tonight

Who needs to buy it you can steal it outright
Leave it in the parking lot of Chicken Delight
I’m in the business of just pissin’ people off
You say you don’t have a cold I’m gonna give you my cough

Now my baby’s started talkin’ an the turkey’s in the oven
You lost all my respect cause I’m incapable of loving
Try it again you’d only hate me more
Cause I’m gonna be true tonight

And I’m gonna be truer than a scary state trooper
Pulling you over for your latest drunken stupor
One night to prove it then I’m back to tellin’ lies
Cause I’m gonna be true tonight

DRINKIN’ AND GAMBLIN’

If you got to ask you ain’t a from around here, this here gin mill’s mine
It’s been the anchor of this town since it first fell on hard times
I’ve seen the worst and served ’em more and peeled ’em off the floor
Even lost this place in a poker game but I won it back by morn

Drinkin’ And Gamblin an tryin’ to be happy
We’ve had some good times that’s for sure
But we haven’t won the war
Drinkin’ And Gamblin an tryin’ to be happy
We’ve had some hard times that’s for sure
That’s what the drinkin’s for

This town is made of broken hearts and gamblin’ makes us whole
Once in a while you gotta lose it all, just helps to cleanse your soul
Observed an man to drown himself I’ve seen a life destroyed
Threw a party when he divorced he was jumpin’ round for joy

Drinkin’ And Gamblin an tryin’ to be happy
We’ve had some good times that’s for sure
But we haven’t won the war
Drinkin’ And Gamblin an tryin’ to be happy
We’ve had some hard times that’s for sure
That’s what the drinkin’s for

Well I hope you have one in your town where you sit side by side
With the mayor the firemen and the local crew and have yourselves a time
Morning once again feels wrong still here’s the life we chose
Woke up with a woman so strange and I can’t find all my clothes

Drinkin’ And Gamblin an tryin’ to be happy
We’ve had some good times that’s for sure
But we haven’t won the war
Drinkin’ And Gamblin an tryin’ to be happy
We’ve had some hard times that’s for sure
That’s what the drinkin’s for

LONELINESS AWAY

I thought I had it bad till things got even worse
So I try to wish this Loneliness Away
People say that it’s a sin but I get what I can take
I’ll make it through this lifetime either way

Sometimes I feel alright and I don’t feel the need to do
Anything destructive, but those times are far and few

If loneliness could fill my tank I could make it to the moon
I hear it gets lonely out there too
Movies help to pass the time I watch the same ones over again
When the movie’s done I’m still thinking about you

Sometimes I feel alright and I don’t feel the need to do
Anything destructive, but those times are far and few

Sometimes I feel alright and I don’t feel the need to do
Anything destructive, but those times are far and few

I thought I had it bad till things got even worse
So I try to wish this Loneliness Away
Oh I try to wish this Loneliness Away
Oh I try to wish this Loneliness Away

THE WORST TRUCK DRIVER

I got 18 wheels for every beer I had for dinner
And I’m gonna get some more at the station
I gotta stay on the road, the bears don’t need to know
I’m gonna drink until my destination

My love life a little stark I found a pickle park
We got it on in a babboon butt
She was no seat cover, but I sure did love her
Commercial company you stole my heart

I’m the Worst Truck Driver in the whole wide world
That I even have a license is just totally absurd
I’ve lost more rigs than my stomach has rolls
I always smash through the gate rather than paying the tolls

I was haulin’ frozen chicken when my rig caught on fire
And man, I hadn’t eaten for days
The sizzlin’ meat smelled boss, so with some BBQ sauce
I ate the chicken by the warmth of the flames

I heard the 10-70 to it was time to leave
I snagged a ride in a roller skate
Another 10-37 never learned my lesson
Another rig another time another day

I’m the Worst Truck Driver but I still find work
I back it down in the hammer lane just to be a jerk
I’ve lost more rigs than my stomach has rolls
I always smash through the gate rather than paying the tolls

On a Georgia overdrive it was a triple digit ride
And I did it in the granny lane
With my chicken lights a-flashin smashed a wiggle wagon
Sped past the coop right in the hammer lane

Too many eggs in the basket past the chicken coop
I knew there was a bear in the grass
I saw the disco lights had to spend the night
Snugglin’ up with mama bear

I’m the Worst Truck Driver in the whole wide world
That I even have a license is just totally absurd
I’ve lost more rigs than my stomach has rolls
I always smash through the gate rather than paying the tolls

I got 18 wheels for every beer I had for dinner
And I’m gonna get some more at the station
I gotta stay on the road, the bears don’t need to know
I’m gonna drink until my destination

I’m the Worst Truck Driver you could ever meet
Your stuff would get there faster if you left it on the street
I’ve lost more rigs than my stomach has rolls
I always smash through the gate rather than paying the tolls

DRANK YOURSELF INTO A CORNER

Workin’ hard at doing barely anything
Just sleep all day and head off to the bar
Slippin’ through the cracks of people doing things
Workin’ hard at nothing overtime

Sometimes the living’s good down at the border
Drinking hard and sleeping all the time
The money’s gone your woman’s making other plans
Looks like you Drank Yourself Into A Corner

Facing all our troubles only made it bad
Just stick to what you know that you can do
Slippin’ through the cracks of people doing things
Workin’ hard at nothing overtime

Sometimes the living’s good down at the border
Drinking hard and sleeping all the time
The money’s gone your woman’s making other plans
Looks like you Drank Yourself Into A Corner

Workin’ hard at doing barely anything
Just sleep all day and head off to the bar
Slippin’ through the cracks of people doing things
Workin’ hard at nothing overtime

I suppose you’ll be down at the border
If you want me I’ll be on the other side
We tried so hard but now I need to save myself
Looks like you drank yourself into a corner
Looks like you drank your woman from the border
Looks like you drank yourself into a corner

SO UGLY

Just bout time for me to get – So Ugly
Scare all the kids so they can’t sleep it feels – So Ugly
Have some kicks throw the dog in the pool
Stop makin’ sense now startin’ to drool
Broke my tail when I hit the ground
Didn’t feel a thing but I heard the sound

Ugly, Ugly, Ugly
Like an oyster in the sun
Ugly, Ugly, Ugly
Like a priest that’s found the one

Just about time for me to feel – So Ugly
Play bad music till the neighbors start to scream – So Ugly
Throw rocks at pigeons and bombs at planes
I love Infomercials and cats in the rain
Seal the hopes of the younger men
Sell ’em to the vultures in the lions’ den

Ugly, Ugly, Ugly
Adolf Hitler with a smile
Ugly, Ugly, Ugly
Lou’s pet chihuahua lost in the wild (Daddy’s comin’!)

Step on the flowers and pave the groves
Someone really did it now they called it home
Have a stroll the woods are free
But the dogs are on a killing spree

Ugly, Ugly, Ugly
Like a teacher that’s always wrong
Ugly, Ugly, Ugly
Like a song that’s gone too long

DRINK A LITTLE HOOCH

Playin’ games with money like a-hide-and-go-seek
Sometimes the money’s hiding for a couple of weeks
The enemy is boredom bein’ broke is OK
The only kinda work is the kind they call play

I like to Drink a little hooch, raise a little hell
Spend a little money on the ponies, oh yeah
Is there something I been missing out on?
Is there something I been missing out on?
Yeah, yeah yeah yeah

Fell asleep at truckstop, smell like salisbury steak
Wakin’ up with nothin’ hunting gathering through the day
Someday perhaps I’d like some kind of house and a car
Tonight I like the company of moonshine by the stars

I like to Drink A Little Hooch, raise a little hell
Spend a little money on the ponies, oh yeah
Is there something I been missing out on?
Is there something I been missing out on?
Yeah, yeah yeah yeah

I haven’t seen my baby for a good many years
She took off with a salesman when she’s ready I’ll be here
Got a knack for makin’ money on the ponies you know
But I never take it personally when they take all my dough

I like to Drink A Little Hooch, raise a little hell
Spend a little money on the ponies, oh yeah
Is there something I been missing out on?
Is there something I been missing out on?
Yeah, yeah yeah yeah

Now the sun is settin’ on a beautiful sea
The ponies in their stalls and the hooch is flowin’ free
So many ways of livin’ so many people out there
So don’t waste your time a-judgin’ cause I don’t really care

I like to Drink A Little Hooch, raise a little hell
Spend a little money on the ponies, oh yeah
Is there something I been missing out on?
Is there something I been missing out on?
Is there something I been missing out on?
Yeah, yeah yeah yeah

I HAVEN”T HAD A BIRTHDAY FOR YEARS

Bring along the morning sun let’s hope for better days
I’d like to try to help to make you smile
Light a torch to help you, deep inside the caves
Where hours feel like mornings, last night just flew away

Haven’t had a birthday now for years
Last one seemed to be so long ago from now
Birthdays sometimes have to feel this way
Haven’t had a birthday now for years

Every time I celebrate we have the same debate
What’s the point of changing all these ways
You say you will surprise me, still I know about this day
I lost a couple years somewhere I can’t make the same mistake

Haven’t had a birthday now for years
Last one seemed to be so long ago from now
Birthdays sometimes have to feel this way
Haven’t had a birthday now for years

Haven’t had a birthday now for years
Last one seemed to be so long ago from now
Birthdays sometimes have to feel so strange
Haven’t had a birthday now for years

So bring along the morning sun and lots of extra cake
If not now when shall we live this day?
I’m happy just to lie with you, give the world a break
But now my heart is pumping and the blood runs through my veins

Haven’t had a birthday now for years
Last one seemed to be so long ago from now
If not now when shall we live this day?
Haven’t had a birthday now for years
Haven’t had a birthday now for years
I haven’t had a birthday now for years

IT WAS A REALLY BAD YEAR

It was a really bad year; the kind of year I could forget with drinking
It was a really bad year; the kind of year I could forget with drinking
And all the fellas at the bar, they’re always helping out my wife with something
And all the fellas at the bar, they’re always helping out my wife with something

We sing: Oh ah oh, oh ah oh, oh ah oh; Oh ah whoa whoa whoa

It was a really bad year; the kind of year I could forget with drinking
It was a really bad year; the kind of year I could forget with drinking
And all the fellas at the local bodega, they think I’m crazy, crazy
They think I’m crazy, crazy; They think I’m crazy, crazy

We sing: Oh ah oh, oh ah oh, oh ah oh; Oh ah whoa whoa whoa

I have a problem with my local DJ, I can’t believe some of the songs he won’t play
I have a problem with my local DJ, I can’t believe some of the songs he won’t play
He don’t like Elvis, Elvis; He don’t like Elvis, Elvis;
He don’t like Elvis, Elvis; He don’t like Elvis, Elvis;

We sing: Oh ah oh, oh ah oh, oh ah oh; Oh ah whoa whoa whoa

It was a really bad year, It was a really bad year
It was a really bad year, It was a really bad year
It was a really bad year, It was a really bad year
It was a really bad year, It was a really bad year

We sang: Oh ah oh, oh ah oh, oh ah oh; Oh ah whoa whoa whoa

STILL CAN”T BELIEVE THAT YOU”RE GONE

Okay, I guess it’s time to get up
TIme to push through the day, and try to get things done
TIme to work through the smiles, and keep the feelings on the run
It’s been a while and I still can’t believe that you’re gone

Like a steamroller plowin’ right through the center of my soul
Can you hear the sound of a freight train that never comes home
Or is it on its way?
I still can’t believe that you’re gone

Okay, I miss you more than these words will endure
I keep expecting you to walk right through that door
I keep waiting for something, but I don’t really know what for
It’s been a while and I still can’t believe that you’re gone

Like a steamroller plowin’ right through the center of my soul
Can you hear the sound of a freight train that never comes home
Or is it on its way?
I still can’t believe that you’re gone

Like a steamroller plowin’ right through the center of my soul
Can you hear the sound of a freight train that never comes home
Or is it on its way?
I still can’t believe that you’re gone
It’s been a while and I still can’t believe that you’re gone
Well…
