I kissed the kids at noon
Then stumbled out the room
I caught a cab, ran up a tab
On 7th and Flower

Best recital, I had to run
Missed my son's graduation
Punched the Nickle's boy
For taking his seat
He gets all that anger from me

Still things could be much worse
Natural disasters on the evening news
Still things could be much worse
We still got our health
My paycheck in the mail

I promised to my wife and children
I'd never touch another drink
As long as I live but even then
It sounds so soothing
This will blow over in time
This will all blow over in time

I'm just an honest man
Provide for me and mine
I give a check to tax deductible
Charity organizations

Two weeks paid vacation
Won't heal the damage done
I need another one

Still things could be much worse
Natural disasters on the evening news
Still things could be much worse
We still got our health
My paycheck in the mail

I promised to my wife and children
I'd never touch another drink
As long as I live but even then
It sounds so soothing to mix a gin
And sink into oblivion

I promised to my wife and children
That accident left everyone a little shook up
But at the meetings I felt so empty
This will blow over in time
This will all blow over in time
