Alcohol 

Alcohol, my permanent accessory
Alcohol, a party time necessity
Alcohol, alternative to feeling like yourself
Oh alcohol I still drink to your health

I love you more,
Than I did the week before
I discovered alcohol

“That’s what I’m talking about”

Forget the cafe lattes
Screw the raspberry iced tea
A Malibu and Coke for you
A G and T for me

Alcohol, your songs resolve
Like my life never will
When someone else is picking up the bill

I love you more
Than I did the week before
I discovered alcohol

Oh alcohol
Would you please forgive
For while I cannot love myself
I’ll use something else

I thought that alcohol
Was just for those with nothing else to do
I thought that drinking just to get drunk
Was a waste of precious booze

But now I know that there’s
A time and theres a place where I can choose
To walk the fine line between self-control and self-abuse

(Chanting) Go, go go go go go

I love you more
Than I did the week before
I discovered alcohol

Would you please ignore
That you found me on the floor
Trying on your camisole

Oh alcohol
Would you please forgive me?
For while I cannot love myself
I’ll use something else

Would you please forgive me?
Would you please forgive me?
