Man Who Can’t Get Drunk

Not so long ago in this bar that I know
I met a man who had his world turned upside down
For many long years he’d enjoyed drinking beer
And his binges were the talk of the town

Then one night at the bar, he’s drinking whiskey by the jar
But that old familiar feeling didn’t come
He stared in dismay as that whiskey did betray him
Gallon after gallon but he couldn’t get drunk

Cause he’s the man who just can’t get drunk no more
So fella, just what are you drinking that for?
Whiskey ain’t the same and a beer is too tame
When you’re the man who just can’t get drunk no more

Well he told me that he tried to get drunk every night
All the whiskey, wine and beer he could afford
But nothing seemed to work and he told me with a smirk
That making good decisions all the time is a bore

Cause he’s the man who just can’t get drunk no more
So fella, just what are you drinking that for?
Whiskey ain’t the same and a beer is too tame
When you’re the man who just can’t get drunk no more

He made money for a time taking bets
From all the drunks who wanted to put him to the test
And he found out very quickly
That the girls just ain’t so pretty
At last call
When you’re still seeing straighter than the rest

Cause he’s the man who just can’t get drunk no more
So fella, just what are you drinking that for?
Whiskey ain’t the same and a beer is too tame
When you’re the man who just can’t get drunk no more

So the moral of this tale
Is enjoy your your wine and ale
Anytime you can
While you can!
