The city lights lead the way to paradise tonight
they're all there waiting for me on a ship as big as life
so tell me why it ain't right
it's the one true thing that keeps me high

It'll kill you
just get tougher
no one said it was easy
being a drunkard

the ice cold beer tastes nice, I got whiskey in the van
just want to have a little bit of fun while I'm young and I still can
just zip your lip, listen close
it's my life and it's my choice

It'll kill you
just get tougher
no one said it was easy
being a drunkard

I sit and stare at the neon
I got my buddies to lean on
We'll drink to your bad health
some folks can't take it
I ain't one, ain't that right
we'll need it if only for tonight

So open up and knock one down,
let's all get drunk and tear up the town.
It'll kill you,
just get tougher.
No one said it was easy
being a drunkard
