…Well pass me the whiskey, pass me the gin
Pass me whatever there’s drank left in

Well I don’t care if its seven in the morning
For all I care it could be the second coming

Well you say you couldn’t take it anymore
You can’t live like this, its a really big deal

Well I don’t care, can’t pay attention
and I don’t give a fuck about your intentions at all…
