The Problem With Drinking

You tell me how you used to drink in bars all day

They tell me how their Dads, staggered home from the pub

Every day without fail, and beat you and your mother

All their wages went on liquor and booze,

They couldn’t afford to spend any time with you

Or you with yourself

Days spent in bars, dollars and pounds adding up

Women you thought were cheap

When you were only cheapening yourself

They make for beautiful stories, but they have no moral purpose

I can barely afford ten bottles of wine a month

Nevermind one or two a day

It makes you wonder what sort of a world we live in

When you have to be appallingly rich

Just to have a drinking problem.
