Lyrics
One drink of whiskey, one drink of gin
One drink of vodka and I told my friends
Things don't seem quite like they used to
As reality leaves, so does the blues

One toke of reefer, a little cocaine
One shot of morphine and things begin to change
Things don't seem quite like they used to
As reality leaves, so does the blues

Up around here, back down again
I've been up on top, don't bother, my friend
Things don't seem quite like they used to
As reality leaves, so does the blues
