Since being pissed all through Xmas and New Year,
I think it’s about time I cut down on my drinking.
But that’s not what I want to do, I fear
I’d rather cut down on my thinking.
If I don’t think it’s a problem, it can’t be one.
There, that’s got rid of all of the trouble.
Let’s have another drink, you know it’s fun,
by the way make mine a double.
