about

Most Doctors would warn against this piece of advice though many I’ve met have adhered to it- funny old world. Again, not very radio friendly due to liberal use of the vernacular.

lyrics

Stay Drunk!
Capo IV – E blues

C

Now drinking in the morning’s alright by me
But they take a dim view in authority
F
It seems they’re most insistent on sobriety
C
When operating plant & machinery
The bank’s foreclosed cos my job’s gone away
I wont sit down moping round the house all day
F G
Beg a penny or a shekel or a euro or a cent or a dime
F G C
Or steal what it takes to stay drunk all the time


All the great romances & heroines kissed
Royal love affairs & classical myths
Courtly love & sexual bliss
All came about cos they’re all half pissed
If you’re up all night drinking from the loving cup
She wont be so lovely once you’ve sobered up
If your convictions are anything like mine
You’ll take my advice & stay drunk all the time

F
Over 1000s of years of human history
C
Great strides have been made after 2 or maybe 3
F
Cos science, medicine & discovering new lands
C
Cant be carried out by shaking hands
C
The guilt & the shame & the hangover
Are what separate the pro from the amateur
F G
Headaches & shakes can be avoided if you’re so inclined
F C G
One simple step – stay drunk all the time

Instrumental
Slow tremolo
C
Well I had me a wife & I loved her dear
As to where she is now I’m not exactly clear
F G
No forwarding address, it’s like she fled the scene of a crime
F G C
She just left me a note that read “Stay Drunk All The Time!”
