Come on, bartender
Won't you be more tender?
Give me two shots of whiskey
And a beer chaser

Love will be the death of me
Love is so fickle
It starts with a flood and ends with a tri-tri-tri-tri-tri-trickle

Come on, bartender
Just a little more tender
I ate all your peanuts
Return me to sender
I've been too candid
Now I'm barely standing
Just call me a taxi
And prepare me for landing

Ooh, you have got to kick me back out
Into the cold and nasty weather
And maybe if I sober up
I will stop
Pretending that love is forever
Love is forever

Come on, bartender
Come on, bartender
Come on, bartender

Ooh, you have got to kick me back out
Into the cold and nasty weather
And maybe if I sober up
I will stop
Pretending that love is forever
Love is forever
Love is, Love is
Love is forever

Come on, bartender
Come on, bartender
Come on, bartender

Love will be the death of me
Love will be the death of me
Love will be the death of me

Love is so fickle
It starts with a flood and it ends with a tri-tri-tri-tri-tri-tri-tri-tri-tri-tri-tri-tri-trickle
Trickle
Trickle
Trickle
Trickle
Trickle

Come on, bartender
Come on, bartender
Come on, bartender

    General Comment"I probably stop pretending that love is forever."
    I love the subtly in the way she sings it, so at first it sounds like she's just saying "Love is forever", but then you listen more closely it is more real, that maybe she can STOP PRETENDING that love is forever.
    Isn't it reminiscent of Andre 3000 singin' something like "they say that nothin is forever, then what makes love the exception". It's not the happiest thought, but that's life.
    Damn that Regina's got it goin on.
