I'm gonna start the day early
Maybe like a rocket on fire
Then I'm gonna write me a thousand songs
And I am never, ever, ever gonna tire

You bring the cup and I'll bring the moonshine
I wanna fill you up, babe won't you be mine?

I'm gonna knock em' all down
Maybe till I can't see straight
Then I'm gonna wake up at dawn
And I'm gonna feel great

I'm gonna start the day early
Maybe like a baby at birth
I'm gonna give you a present
With brown eyes and beautiful words

    General CommentAs they put it during their show in Chicago in October at the Park West... "This song is about getting drunk."

    I also can't help but imagine the cup being a bit of a sexual reference for women and the moonshine being well... you know. But overall its about drinking early in the day, a little liquid confidence, and a few references to the things that might happen while drinking.

    General CommentI love, love, love this song.

    Definitely a song about getting drunk, and probably sex.
