Reaching for the bottle
Grasping at the can
Lifting up the glass
I'm feeling like a man

Pouring out the whisky
Sipping at the gin
Chugging back the alcopops
I've got a massive grin

Shooting up sambuca
Fire in the hole!
A vial full of vodka
The night is not yet old

Gin and tonics
Jager bombs
Tequila slammers
Pale blondes

Brandy cognac
Baileys cream
Guinness stout
An absinthe dream

Things now very hazy
Wake up in a street
Suffering from blackouts
Can't stand on my feet

Flashbacks to the night before
My legs are fucking feeling raw
Taste of vomit, sick dry mouth
Reek of piss and passing out

What is this place, I don't quite know
A low down, dirty horror show
Where have I been? What have I done?
The beer monkeys have come and won

Shame, regret. I head for home
Alone of course and lost my phone
Head in hands and time to think
I'll never have another drink


(I still drink)

Harrowing, with some appropriate gallows humor. Alcohol is a cruel temptress and master!

Haha. Thanks for that great comment. That wasn't even my worst night out! Is it wrong that I kind of enjoyed it?
