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!
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!
One of my good friends
Offered me some beer
But I got “common sense”
So I whispered in his ear
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!
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!
