Don't mind when it happens
No problem when I am sayin' it
But when I lose my mind, kick my behind
Because I hate when my mind keeps replayin' it

I'm not braggin' and I'm not proud
I hang around a drunken crowd
We are happy, that I can say
And until we're not, I kid you not, we're gonna stay that way

We're down, down, down
One more day of sayin' we won't be
No more, down, down, down
One more good day of sayin' we won't be
No more

Drinkin' the other day
I said, "I love you", you turned away
Maybe the drinkin', it made me cry
But I'm a happy, very happy, very happy guy

Drunks and children they tell the truth
That's just what I am, I'm drunken youth
And when I'm drinkin' I don't know why
But I'm a happy, very happy, very happy guy

Sometimes when I'm playin'
I never watch what I'm sayin'
Sometimes I lose my head
I lose my head and things get said I never should have said

Sometimes I get housed
I get housed I get soused and shoot off my mouth
And sometimes I can't get out
And I don't know what I'm talkin' about

You know, I've made mistakes
I've had my ups and downs, my ins and outs, my share of bad breaks
But when it's all been said and done
I raise my beer and I swear "God it's been fun!"

Good God
Good God
Good God
Good God
Good God
Good God
God, it's been fun!
