My name is Alcohol
And I'm here to kick your ass,
But first I'm going to make you feel like a winner
I'm going to let you think your upper class.
Now don't be afraid and don't be shy
Drink me up and I will make you strong,
Don't worry about any damage you'll do
Because nothing you'll do is wrong.
I got your front and I got your back
Damn you're a good looking guy,
What are all those people talking about
"He's so quite and he's so shy".
I'll give you the confidence of a leading man
And I will put a lady on each of your arms,
And you will dazzle all the people that use to laugh at you
With your new found arrogance and your charm.
I'll give you the money and I'll give you the job
You will have the greatest stories to tell at the bar,
You'll never have to worry about being lonely
As long as I'm within reach of your arm.
And just when you think you're on top of the world
And nothing can bring you down,
I'll fill you up with guilt and fear
And then I will drag you all through the town.
I'll let you stumble and piss in your pants
You'll bum for change to buy some more,
And just when you think you've had enough
I'll fill you with a craving you can't ignore.
There will come a time when you scream out loud
"Please God help me I've made a big mistake",
And if you don't take advantage of the help he gives
I'll be there waiting silently, it's your life I want to take...
