The Binge

Well I woke up Saturday morning

Feeling kind of dazed

I must have had one too many last night

And blew my mind away

Oh, I told myself once never again

You got to change your ways

 

I woke up Sunday morning

Feeling kind of ashamed

For what I did to that girl last night

I don’t recall her name

Oh, I told myself once never again

You got to change your ways

 

I woke up Monday morning

Feeling kind of blue

The bills weren’t paid and the dog ran away

I burned my breakfast too

Oh, I told myself once never again

You got to change your ways

 

I woke up Tuesday morning

Late again for work

I just got in two hours ago

And I can’t find my shirt

Oh, I told myself once never again

You got to change your ways

 

I woke up Wednesday morning

Feeling kind of confused

I don’t recall where I parked the car

So now I’m blaming you

Oh, I told myself once never again

You got to change your ways

 

I woke up Thursday morning

Shocked by what I’d seen

Sitting inside these jailhouse bars

Is not the bar I need

Oh, I told myself once never again

You got to change your ways

 

I woke up Friday morning

Hoping it was a dream

But what the hell the weekends here

I know where I will be

Gonna go downtown for

One more round

Why don’t you come with me
