Hey listen brother…Yeah…Y' know sometimes…I like a shot of whisky…
Yeah…sometimes…I like a big bottle of wine…
You know an' on a hot, hot day….a cold keg of beer…is just fine…

y' know what I'm talkin' about...

[1] Don’t fix me up with no doctor… he’s gonna turn you in, man…
Yeah, don’t fix me up with no doctor… I'm tellin' ya...he’s gonna turn you in...
He don’t like all my drinkin’…all that whisky, wine and gin…

[2] Don’t set me down with no teacher…’cause you’re breakin’ all the rules…x2
Got me a box of bad habits…you learned them all after school…

[C] Well they…won’t let me drink…an' they…won’t let me smoke…
won’t let me gamble…’and they won’t let me toke…
*‘Aw hell’… yeah son…I’d say…we’re on the road to wreck and ruin…
Meanwhile…I got me a box of bad habits…an’ I won’t be quitin’ soon…
