Woke up in the drunk tank
You said you're drying out
You've been at it now for 7 muddy days
Your friends have all been waiting
For you to come around
But that don't take away the bloody pain

Get your feet back on the ground
Billy put that bottle down
All your friends prefer you stick around
You've been at it now for days
So how many will it take?
Until you've had enough or until
Your body breaks

We first met in the bar room at the age of 21
And only 6 years passed, but we seemed
So bloody young
To us the drink's a gift
Boy to you it's been a curse
Things started badly and they just got worse

Get your feet back on the ground
Billy put that bottle down
All your friends prefer you stick around
You've been at it now for days
So how many will it take?
Until you've had enough or until
Your body breaks

Your girl of 7 years has stopped
Returning all your calls
And late last night your landlord
Moved your things into the hall
Your friends are all waiting
For you to see the light
If you don't stop soon
We're afraid you're gonna die

Get your feet back on the ground
Billy put that bottle down
All your friends prefer you stick around
You've been at it now for days
So how many will it take?
Until you've had enough or until
Your body breaks

Get your feet back on the ground
Billy put that bottle down
All your friends prefer you stick around
You've been at it now for days
So how many will it take?
Until you've had enough or until
Your body breaks
