about

Sometimes during the writing process you land on something that is funny, has universal appeal, and just happens to be true all at once. "I Need a Drink" is one of those songs.
Without getting too psycho-analytical, the song is more about NOT needing to have a drink than it is about having one, but that doesn't make it any less enjoyable. Have one on me, sit back and enjoy.

Cheers,

lyrics

Damn, I wish I could have a drink right now.
I’ll drink in the morning.
I’ll drink in the evening.
I’ll drink any time I damn well please.

I want to have a drink right now.

To hell with self-improvement I’ll do anything I please.
I’ll burn down every gym and bring those gym-rats to their knees.

I want to have a drink right now.

If you were here right now we’d fuck instead of drink.
That’d be enough to kill the urge, maybe, I think.

I want to have a drink right now.
Damn I wish I could have a drink right now.

I’ll drink in times of peace and times of war.
I’ll drink til I’m too drunk to stand, then I’ll have one on the floor.

I want to have a drink right now.

If you could hear the words rattle round inside my head,
You wouldn’t believe the things that I have almost said.
Some conversations that you hope never come out.
As I try to keep the words from spilling out my mouth.

I want to have a drink right now.
Damn, I wish I could have a drink right now.
