Okay, I'm Not a Good Drinker

Well, okay. so I'm not a good drinker.

I'm a man. I can kick like an NFL kicker.

I never meant to get into an ugly fight.

Or be thrown through the door glass and all

Okay, I'm not a good drinker.

But you must be patient right here

I will not lie, I've never drank beer

I was pure. But a woman kicked me for calling her dear.

Okay, I'm not a good drinker.

So, okay. Yell at me. I do not recall

My dear wife, my companion and friend

Until last night, I was buzzed; had no phone to call.

Back when my parents raised me, they did good

No, ma'am, their son was not with a head made of wood.

I went to school, toe'd the line and did what I could.

But when I took my first sip of cold beer . ..

I talked loudly to the crowd, and was mostly-misunderstood.

Okay, I'm not a good drinker. Call me liar if you please

I tell you this, I deserve this awful this hang-over

All the way down to my knees.

So remember . . .Okay, I'm not a good drinker.

Hours passed and the truth showed up in a bad way

I recall most-everything. I deserve to hurt this day.

I tried to scream the pain to get off and get away . . .

Okay, I'm not a good drinker.

Last night, yes, wife, let us talk about last night

A few buddies lied to me and said it would be fun.

No harm, no wild women, just dancing, no fights.

Then the buddies said for me do something named:

chug-a-lug with my mug of beer

12 beers later, I did not have one care.

Now I know that Okay, I'm not a good drinker.
