(This a song about the pros and cons of alcohol, Tom)

Stop your pretending
Listen to what I gotta say
Now your head?s ran away
Only here for a day
That a grave I?ve just made, yeah
For me when I get laid, yeah, baby
When I get laid, yeah, listen up

Won?t you wait a while
Move to the blue
Sometimes people don?t wanna say
Old time dancers don?t die die that way
See that grave I?ve just made
It?s for me when I get laid

And somebody?s gotta hold back the river, yeah
And somebody like you, yeah
Somebody like you

Do you love and surrender, yeah
Sometimes I don?t feel I can remember
NowI think it?s fair to mention, yeah
About the days when I get laid

And somebody?s gotta hold back the river, yeah
And somebody like you
And somebody?s gotta hold back the river, yeah
And somebody like you, yeah
Somebody like you

Yeah, yeah, yeah

I saw a little loving
I told you all to listen
But you never liked what you heard
Now I take what I am given
This may sound absurd
Now I stare with double vision
And starting the transition, now
Now baby, yeah

Hey where?s Jimmy Jazz

Oh I told you to listen
Yes I told you all to listen

And somebody?s gotta hold back the river
And somebody like you
And somebody?s gotta hold back the river, yeah
And somebody like you
And somebody?s gotta hold back the river
And somebody like you
And somebody?s gotta hold back the river, yeah
Yeah
Somebody ain?t you

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

(Oh yes)
