Lyrics
Offering my all to anyone who isn't there...
Raising my eyes to meet another empty stare...
( Swing low-take me home-here's one for the boys )
Someone take my hand, take me for all I'm worth...
Take me to the riverside, and drown me in your mirth...
( Swing low-take me home-here's one for the boys-
It's now or never-'til the end of time now, c'mon feel the noise! )
Everyone loves a musical drunk, He's always full of cheer.
Everyone loves a musical drunk 'Cept when he's crying in your beer.
Then it's 'take a walk, pa, We've had enough.
We like all your singing and funny stuff.
But when the teardrops start, you gotta leave
'Cause who wants to hear an old rummy grieve?
Lay me down to sleep, to dream of yesteryear's parades.
Borrow from my restless heart, then pay me back in spades.
They laugh and shake their heads and then go home to empty beds.
I wish them all the luck in the world and pray I wake up dead.
( Swing low-Take me home-a long, long time ago...
We'll drink a cup of kindness yet-Louie, Louie, we gotta go! )
Everyone loves a musical drunk, He's always full of cheer.
Everyone loves a musical drunk.
'Cept when he's crying in your beer.
He's always around to bring you down,
until he gets tossed or you buy him a round.
Everyone loves a musical drunk, until he forgets the words...
It's the b**'s rush. Bang. I'm out the door.
Don't come crying 'round here no more...
I'm only p*** drunk, barfly at best.
But most of the time, I'm just depressed.
So I cross my broken heart and hold my stinking breath.
Then, suppress a yawn...and wait for death...
Everyone loves a musical drunk. He's always full of booze.
Hopped up on some rot gut gin. Moaning away his blues.
Everyone loves a musical drunk. Drinking with two hands.
Singing of lost love, hope, and glory
And Katerina Daughery!
