No Excuse T'Use Booze

From the album Stayin' Over Buy Now

- problems get worse when you use booze 

NO EXCUSE T’USE BOOZE!                     

Cho:  There’s no excuse t’use booze    

All you get is confused                        

Booze makes problems for you, so        

There’s no excuse t’use booze!             

Chorus

 

Booze is bad for kids                        

Now we all know that’s true                

But some folks don’t admit                

That it’s bad for the grown-ups too!    

Chorus

 

One of my good friends

Offered me some beer

But I got “common sense”

So I whispered in his ear

Chorus

 

M’friend said “You’re no fun!”

“When there’s booze around, I grab it!”

He got drunk, and he got sick,

If that’s fun, well, he can have it!

Chorus

Instrumental - double Chorus

 

Now some kids drink at parties

Cause they’re feelin’ bad inside

And sometimes gettin’ loaded

Seems like a way to hide.

Yeah, sometimes life’s a drag

An’ it’s tough t’be a kid

But you’ll make it fine without drugs an’ booze

Lots of other people did!

Chorus
