From the recording GOOD FRIDAY REVIVAL

Lyrics

Well, if ya buy me a drink, ya know I'll have to drink it
And if ya build me a boat, ya know I'll probably sink it
And if ya pass me a joint, ya know I'll probably smoke it
And if your radio don't work, ya know I probably broke it
So stay out of the drunkard's way
Or ya just might find you've got hell to pay
If you give me a job, ya know I'll never make it
To be a workin' man, I say, it's just a bit overrated
And if ya give me some love, ya know I'll probably hate it
And when I'm sleepin' around sometimes, I wake up naked
So stay out of the drunkard's way
Or ya just might find you've got hell to pay
I'm always wakin' up in shame
I'm always takin' all the blame
All the cops they know my name
I live the drunkard's way!
"I've been pukin' on the pavement, I've been pissin' on the dog
I've been croakin' like a bullfrog, I've been livin' like a hog
I've been smokin' up my cigarettes and chokin' on the smog
I've been drinkin' up my fortune cause I love my alcohol!"
And when I'm drivin' your car, how far until I finally crash it
& When I'm in your house, be warned-ya know I just might trash it
And if your T.V's on, I'll pick a hammer up and smash it
And if you try to stop me then, I'll take your head and bash it
