"The Queen and I" as written by Matthew Mcginley, Travis Mccoy, Disashi Lumumba-kasongo, David Katz and Sam Hollander....
I love that how she breathes booze in the mornin'
Man, it's so sexy how she can't remember last night
I made the fatal mistake of lettin' her drink again
Well, who the hell am I to tell her how to live her life?
And if you could put dumb in a shot glass
I'm just another lush who's had one too many in me
Pussy's not enough
Forcin' me to stay and settle for anything
Anything's better than lettin' her
Think she could do better than me
She'll come around eventually

'Cause baby girl's a queen
But the queen's just a pawn with a bunch of fancy moves
And she's made me a fiend
I'm goin' through withdrawal but I got nothin' to lose

[Chorus]
Oh no (Hey!)
She's at the bottom of that bottle (Hey! Hey!)
She's only one more swallow (Hey!)
From being oh-so hollow (Hey!)
(Hey! Hey! Hey!)
Bravo (Hey!), she's at the bottom of that bottle (Hey! Hey!)
She's only one more swallow (Hey!)
From being oh-so hollow (Hey!)
(Hey! Hey! Hey!)

I find it funny she can never find her car keys
Immediately after telling me she can't take it
She makes the cutest faces when she screams obscenities
And slurs her words because she's never not inebriated
And the front page headline read
Let the girl go; you know you can do better
It's bad when the fact that you can't have her
Is the reason you sweat her
Don't let her take advantage of you
Like the other dudes let her
You better cut your losses now, buddy

'Cause baby girl's a queen
But the queen's just a pawn with a bunch of fancy moves
And she's made me a fiend
I'm goin' through withdrawal but I got nothin' to lose

[Chorus]

Drown yourself
It's not worth keeping me
Just put it down right now
And bow out gracefully
Drown yourself
It's not worth keeping me
Just put it down right now
And bow out gracefully

[Chorus]

    General Commenti agree with 360dregrees.
    Plus i think its "I'm just another lush who's had one too many in me" instead of "Someone never like us she's had one too many"
    and then
    "...lettin' her
    Think she could do better than me"
    I think there are some other parts but it's just too hard to make it out clearly. but that's what I know for now.

    General Comment"When bow-wow gracefully"

    i think the phrase goes "then bow out gracefully"

    and "she's never not inebrieated"

    General Commenti don't think that "dumb" is the right word for "dumb in a shotglass" but i can't make out exactly what it is...but if it is dumb, i don't get it.

    General CommentThey got the words wrong, it's definately "The Queen is just a pawn with a bunch of fancy moves" I know this for a fact, I was at Warped tour and Disashi was teaching that part of the song to on of the guys thats touring with them
