I'm Drinking Myself (into an early grave)

CHORUS #1
Iím drinking myself into an early grave,
Though I donít like whiskey, Iíve become itís slave.
It stops me thinking Ďbout the times we had,
And though it leaves me hung over, dear, itís not too bad.

I went into my local bar, the other night,
The waiter he was handsome, dear, but not too bright!
I asked him for a whiskey and a chaser too,
And the more I drank the more I swear he looked like you!

CHORUS #2
Because Iím drinking myself into an early grave,
The more I hit the bottle dear, the more I rave.
It stops me thinking Ďbout the times we had,
And though it leaves me hung over, dear, itís not too bad.

Iím sitting in the bar again itís 5 a.m.,
The waiter says, forget you, dear, but how and when?
I look up from my whiskey with a stupid grin,
Ďcause the more I drink, the more I swear you look like him!

CHORUS #3
Thatís why Iím drinking myself into an early grave,
I know I ought to give up, but Iím not that brave.
It stops me thinking Ďbout the times we had,
And though it leaves me hung over, dear, itís not too bad.

[ PLAY CHORUS AS INSTRUMENTAL BREAK ]

CHORUS #4
Thatís why Iím drinking myself into an early grave,
If you see me in the gutter, donít forget to wave.
It stops me thinking Ďbout the times we had,
And though it leaves me hung over, dear, itís not too bad.
And though it leaves me hung over, dear, itís not too bad.
