Well I gotta get drunk
And I sure do dread it
Cause I know just what I'm gonna do
I'll start to spend my money
Call everybody honey
And wind up singing the blues
I'll spend my whole paycheck
On some old wreck
And brother I can name you a few
But I gotta get drunk
And I sure do dread it
Cause I know just what I'm gonna do

I gotta get drunk I just can't stay sober
There's a lot of good people in town
Who'd like to hear me holler
See me spend my dollars
And I wouldn't think of lettin' 'em down
There's a lot of doctors that tell me
That I'd better start slowin' it down
But there's more old drunkers
Than there are old doctors
So I guess we'd better have another round
Well now I gotta get drunk

Well I gotta get drunk
