A ballad of a hopeless drinker.

To Me It's Very Simple

Went out again last night 
It’d been a crazy day
Went to a place with my friends
Where some cards are played

I lost my shirt and my money too
In a little poker game
Made a bet on a flush in spades
On that you can’t lay blame

Her momma’s ring and my pappy’s gun
Lost them to triple tens
Lost my guitar, a whole week’s pay
Our budget will be thin

There is some good news 
The house’s still in our name
But I lost the kid’s school money
Work-study’s not a shame

To me it’s very simple
It’s oh so crystal clear
Some things are goin’ happen
When you’re out drinkin’ beer

It could be good, may be bad
When you’re out all night
Hope for the best, expect the worst
Sometimes there’s a fight

My friends don’t make it easier
They egg me on to play 
Encourage me to take their dares
I’ll regret it the next day

The thing about our new car
Got insurance what the heck
Made a turn way too fast
Got in a big ol’ wreck

Rolled it three times on the roof
But everyone is fine
God protects drunks and kids
I hear that all the time

And about that little incident
When the cop arrived on site
I swear I didn’t punch him 
Didn’t start that big ol’ fight 

And the firemen were oh so kind
Gave us a place to rest
When the gas leaked across the road
Burned down the whole complex

To me it’s very simple
It’s oh so crystal clear
Some things are goin’ happen
When you’re out drinkin’ beer

It could be good, may be bad
When you’re out all night
Hope for the best, expect the worst
Sometimes there’s a fight

My friends don’t make it easier
They egg me on to play 
Encourage me to take their dares
I’ll regret it the next day

My wife is understandin’
In a lukewarm sort of way
Not much she can do ‘bout me
So she lets me play

It was just another night
Some pool and some beer
Didn’t know his head’d break my cue
And you’d bail me out of here

And about that pair of panties
Tucked under the back seat
I can’t explain it all right now
Please give me ‘bout a week

And the smell of perfume
That’s an easy story to tell
My cousin’s son’s wife’s friend  
Wares too much L’Oréal 

To me it’s very simple
It’s oh so crystal clear
Some things are goin’ happen
When you’re out drinkin’ beer

It could be good, may be bad
When you’re out all night
Hope for the best, expect the worst
Sometimes there’s a fight

My friends don’t make it easier
They egg me on to play 
Encourage me to take their dares
I’ll regret it the next day

I always seem to get the blame
When anything goes wrong
I’m just a peace lovin’ man
Tryin’ to get along

I like my nights out with my friends
But problems they arise
I’ll lay real low, be OK
Then I’ll party with the guys

Some think I’d learned my lessen
From six months in the clink
I’d stop the party, stop the fun
Start drinkin’ soft drinks

But when the sun sets in the west
And the air is coolin’ down
I’ll tell my friends I’m back
And we’ll party in this town

To me it’s very simple
It’s oh so crystal clear
Some things are goin’ happen
When you’re out drinkin’ beer

It could be good, may be bad
When you’re out all night
Hope for the best, expect the worst
Sometimes there’s a fight

My friends don’t make it easier
They egg me on to play 
Encourage me to take their dares
I’ll regret it the next day
