"Givin' it up" as written by and Josh Rouse....
Can you guess how much one man can sit and drink in one night
Don't look so surprised
'Cause this is a world where no one feels sorry for you man
In my drunken state I claim that

I'm givin' it up for good
Gotta tell ya, dear
That was a bad time
I was on the ground crawling on all fours

Woke up the next day and I didn't feel so good
I don't know why I do this to myself
I get the call, they put me in a hospital bed
'Cause I need some help to change

And I'm given it up for good
Gotta tell ya, dear
That was a bad time
I was on the ground crawling on all fours

Yeah, I've givin' it up for good
Gotta tell ya, dear
I'm at a bad time
But I'll be coming around, knocking on your door

There were far too many lies
I was way out of line
This silly little boy's fit to shame
I hope you're happy about the way
That things worked out for me
'Cause I feel better now
Yeah much happier now
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

There were far too many lies
I was way out of line
This silly little boy's fit to shame
And I hope you're happy about the way
That things worked out for me
'Cause I feel better now
Yeah much happier now

That I've given it up for good
Gotta tell ya, dear
That was a bad time
I was on the ground crawling on all fours

Yeah, I've given it up for good
Gotta tell ya, dear
I'm at a bad time
But I'll be coming around, knocking on your door
I'll be coming around, knocking on your door
I'll be coming around, crawling on all fours

    General Commentthis song seems to be about alcoholism, and how when you're in that state you keep telling yourself that you will give it up. on first listening it sounds like a positive song, relating to how he has given up on drinking. but if you read it closely it seems that he hasn't completely overcome the problem. for instance, the last line is 'i'll be coming around, crawling on all fours', a line which is used in the first stanza, relating to his drunken state
