lyrics

I Could Be Drinkin’

Another day working the 9-5
Got me feeling barely alive
Always someone else’s work to do
Feeling done before the day’s half though

I could be drinkin’ instead of sitting behind this desk
I could be drinkin’ instead of cleaning up someone’s mess
When the boss comes ‘round my way
Asks me how I’m doing today I’ll say
I could be drinkin’

Family dinner a thousand miles from home
Traveled all this way just to feel alone
Uncle Larry is talking politics
Cousin Billy is spewing the same old shit

I could be drinking instead of hearing everything I hate
I could be drinking instead of trying not to take the bait
Mama said how ya doing son
I said mama I sure could use a cold one
I could be drinkin’

Sweet Alaine pouring drinks behind the bar
Sipping her club soda from a jar
Through the night she smiles less and less
Ask her how she’s doin, she’ll confess

I could be drinking instead of serving up beer to jerks
I could be drinking at a bar where I don’t work
Yeah I’ll get you another round
Stay up so you can climb on down
I could be drinkin’
I could be drinkin’
I could be drinkin’
We could be drinkin’
