Whiskey

Kicked down the door
fell on the floor
eyes all crossed
like a symbol for poison
been in the drink
for damn near two weeks
took another swig
but the whiskey don’t work

the whiskey don’t work
the whiskey don’t work
drop down dyin’
and the whiskey don’t work
time for some pills
mixin’ up the ills
drop down dyin’ and
the whiskey don’t work

brass monkey breakfast with
a spoonful of spuds
pine planks on the shanty floor
dead from the flood
creakin’ and ‘a squeakin’
with the morning whiskey shivers
smooth cool grip
but the whiskey don’t work

the whiskey don’t work
the whiskey don’t work
drop down dyin’
and the whiskey don’t work
time for some pills
mixin’ up the ills
drop down dyin’ and
the whiskey don’t work
