lyrics

When I was just a small boy - my father he held me
– and gave me my first taste of beer.
If only he’d known the trouble it’d give me
- as my drinking (awkward timing) progressed through the years
And I remember the day I came home to my family
in a circle all waiting for me.
They said every one down is like another nail in your coffin.

Well, I left my local meeting ‘bout an hour ago
Still something just ain’t sitting right
I got a head full of worry and a pocket of dough
– I’m afraid I’m getting fucked up tonight.

There’re cheers and applause from the sloppiest drunks
as I stroll through the door of my bar.
and there’s fear on the faces or tears in the eyes
of anyone else who knows who we are.

“ONE SHOT FOR YOU MAN”
“TWO SHOTS FOR ME”
“ONE SHOT FOR YOU MAN”
“THAT’S ANOTHER ONE DOWN, ANOTHER NAIL IN THE COFFIN”

I was young and lean and cruisin’ strange,
‘till I caught me a hot little wife.
Now we don’t go out and we’re overfed
and we’re both fucking twice the size!
My asshole boss-he’s nearly retarded
and my job damn near brings me to tears.
At least I used to have dreams about the things that I wanted
– I aint even had those for years!

Chorus

“ONE SHOT FOR YOU MAN”
“TWO SHOTS FOR ME”
“ONE SHOT FOR YOU MAN”
“That’s ANOTHER ONE DOWN, ANOTHER NAIL IN THE COFFIN”

So you’re problem free? – Well I’m so glad you’re doing fine.
But look at me – I’m having the time of my life.
And if I’m offending you, I’d say you’re choice is quite clear
Join me in another one down, or get the fuck out of here.

There’s always a moment when I look around
and I know I’m passed my last one
But my lady liquor she’s very persuasive
and tonight once again she has won.

Now I’m getting loud and I’m getting stupid,
Cause when I fuck up – I fuck up right!
When the bartender says “Maybe you should go home.”
I says “I’m already home tonight”.

“ONE SHOT FOR YOU MAN”
“TWO SHOTS FOR ME”
“ONE SHOT FOR YOU MAN”
“That’s ANOTHER ONE DOWN, ANOTHER NAIL IN THE COFFIN”
“That’s ANOTHER ONE DOWN, ANOTHER NAIL IN THE COFFIN”
“That’s ANOTHER ONE DOWN, ANOTHER NAIL IN THE COFFIN”
