You rent an apartment
on a street
that they call the boulevard of broken hearts
and busted dreams
and shattered will, booze and pills

You drink it like water
a whiskey straight
you drink up your dinner
and you clean your plate
and then you want more
you're down on the floor
but still you want more
just one more

brought you downtown
you were depressed
now you're hangin' around
the drunk and dejected
seems hopeless now but you got awhile
so try to smile

Cause the bartender sees your darkest side, the weakest knees, the blurriest eyes
the bartender pours the confidence to help you along so you can pretend


It's cold in Alaska
Lou Reed was right
if you don't got no friends
no one in sight
if you don't like fishin'
well what would you do
drink like a fool, drink like a fool

Potato juice and a beer
there's really no use
to try and steer
cause the jukebox will lead you
to the saddest songs
you're singin' along
you're all singin' along,
you're all singin' along,
you're all singin' along...
