The drunkest man in the world
Misunderstands what he's overheard
Morose one minute, more toasts the next
He's amazing, he's a mess
Always well dressed
The drunkest man in the world
The ones he loves are the ones he hurts
He writes his wife every other day
He's got a way with words but he's a world away
There's a lot to say
He forgot today
He's my father's favourite poet
But you'd never know it
The drunkest man in the world
Beer on his pants, blood on his shirt
Sunken eyed and sallow skinned
The life of the party is the death of him
