There’s no telling where I’ve been

I’ve been all over

I’ve seen so many things you’d probably collapse

I’ve done some things that would make you go ‘aww, how sweet’

And I’ve done some things that would make you wanna gasp

It’s always a good time with some gin or scotch, or wine

I see your face

Don’t be cruel

I may be drunk, but I’m not a drunk fool

 

I have charm

I have wit

I have a sizeable . . . well, you know

Never last in line

I’m makin’ my own time

And I’ll do it on someone else’s dime

A drink in hand and two in the can

I’m a delightful ham and a generous boss

But I’m a real handful when I’m on the sauce

My glass is full with or without ice

I’m circling around everything nice

Don’t be cruel

I may be drunk, but I’m no drunk fool

 

I’m always looking good with a twinkle in my eye

A baby-faced felon kind of guy

I’m a guy with a lot of pluck

You try and imitate me, lots of luck

I’m one of a kind

But don’t be cruel

I may be drunk, but I’m not a drunk fool

 

I have a foot in so many things

I may be stating the obvious, but, baby don’t think I’m a talentless wreck

No, I’m no schlep

I’ve got it where it counts

Every step I take’s got its own bounce

I’m a heck of a guy

No matter who I play, I play it my way

‘Cause I’m one of a kind

Oh, baby don’t be cruel

I may be drunk, but I’m not a drunken fool

 

See my star fly through the sky . . .

Ain’t it nice?

Watch me turn a wet bar dry . . .

I’ll save you a glass

Ain’t it a kick in the pants when I can do everything like act, and sing and dance?

And you’re left there, every care in the world

Oh, don’t be cruel

I may be drunk, but I’m not a drunk fool

 

Treat life like a drink

Take it straight and you’ll have more fun than you think

Quit tryin’ to cheat

Life can’t be beat

If you try to win, the house will take you for a spin

Just sit back and enjoy

Let it happen and try not to be so coy

Oh, man it’s hard when you’re trying to play a part

It’ll play you right back

I can guarantee that, Jack

So top up your glass

Don’t let the hard stuff keep you down

It can be rough, but with a drink, you’ve got the guff

Oh, baby don’t be cruel

I may be drunk, but I’m not a drunk fool

 

Sip and swig

Do your silly jig

Go on and get drunk

A gentleman’s image is a load of bunk

Be happy

Don’t be cruel

If you’re gonna get drunk, try not to act a drunken fool!
