Alchohol - from first nervous drink, to fun in the pub, addiction then redemption

Oh I don't know, what'll my Ma say,

if I go hame pished, am meant to be at school the day!

Fuck it! I'll need tae, cos they're daein it tae,

if a chicken oot now, ''Ya wee poof'' they'll all say!

Right here goes, its ma slug, MA TURN!

Oh here that isnae bad, I thought it would burn.

I'm huvvin mair, that stuff is grand

I feel like Goliath, a giant of a man.

I'm daein this the morra, the drinks fuckin' ace

finally I've found my comfortable place.

I'm into the pub now, and out of the park

In heres fun and warm, outside cold and dark.

In here I'm a singer, a teller of jokes

drinks made me a superstar, my ego it stokes

I'm drinking all this day and drinking the next,

now I'm tapping money for my next drinking fix.

Now friends urnae laughin', they say I'm a chancer

Fuck them anyway, a drink is the answer

Gone like my money, my friends are away

noo av naebody to sub, so how will i pay?

For my next drink is calling and I've started shakin'

My respect , my honour, my facultys taken.

I've stolen for drink, well what would you do

I need my friend with me, don't you all to?

Drinks nae good fur me? Don't geez yer shite!

Drink knows wits best fur me and I know its right

My parnets are wrong and so is my gaffer

leave me wi' drink and I'm happy ever after

but my clothes are all manky and so am I too

this isn't the happiness I thought I'd persue.

Fuck it! I'm still right, and aw yooz ur wrang

Al drink to the death, am going out wi' a bang!

But I'm always crying, inside I am dead

drink no longer lightens the load in my head.

Help and plenty of it, thats what I need,

To God and my parents, for mercy I'll plead.

They were right all along, drink wisnae the answer

Now I'm living sobre, YA -  FUCKIN - DANCER!!
