Woke up at the crack of dawn, 11 am
Phone is ringing from across the room
But its warm here in my bed
And I think I might die of thirst
My liver ain't never felt much worse
But I had a good time
With the boys last night
On the bad side of town

We ain't much into dressing up
And going out to the bars
And you ain't Freddie Mercury
So don't act like your a star
All I want is a place
Where the drinks are cheap
And the people are real
Sitting next to me
And you won't have to look
Cause I'll be on the bad side of the town

I'll just be having a good time
On the bad side of the town
The pretty girls look prettier
When they got their noses down
Moe pours beer and whiskey
Straight Jack without no crown
Its the only medicine we need
On the bad side of the town

Drunk Jerry's on the corner
He's dancing for some change
Forty more cents to a forty
And he'll be dancing in the rain
Don't you dare look down on him
He's doing the best he can
If you had to live the life hes had
You would be a homeless man

I could be on the battery
Sipping drinks with high society
But I'm dancing here with Jerry
Cause at least he knows my name

I'll just be having a good time
On the bad side of the town
The pretty girls look prettier
When they got their noses down
Moe pours beer and whiskey
Straight Jack without no crown
Its the only medicine we need
On the bad side of the town
Watch Jerry dance...

So Lord don't let me get to rich
Or get to proud or get to drunk
And start a fight
Just let me drink a beer with my friends tonight on the bad side of the town
