Raise a glass
hold it high and make it last
here's a toast to all of the boys and the girls
have a seat, raise your drink, and sing with me
here's a toast to all of the boys and the girls
all of the boys and the girls

sometimes things don't go your way man
not much I can do or say man
listen up you gotta play the game
or you'll go out the window
toughen up and roughen up boy
don't you think that giving up boy
take a sip and listen up cause
one day you'll drop

I'll raise a glass this one's for my
love of my life this love of mine
I took a sip, they say I'm fine
I disagree, I've lost my mind

Raise a glass
hold it high and make it last
here's a toast to all of the boys and the girls
we'll count to three, hold your breath and follow me
here's a toast to all of the boys and the girls
all of the boys and the girls

sometimes things don't go your way man
not much I can do or say man
listen up you gotta play the game
or you'll go out the window
toughen up and roughen up boy
don't you think that giving up boy
take a sip and listen up cause
one day you'll drop

I'll raise a glass this one's for my
love of my life this love of mine
I took a sip, they say I'm fine
I disagree, I've lost my mind

sometimes things don't go your way man
not much I can do or say man
listen up you gotta play the game
or you'll go out the window
toughen up and roughen up boy
don't you think that giving up boy
take a sip and listen up cause
It's getting stronger, stronger
yeah!

I'll raise a glass this one's for my
love of my life this love of mine
I took a sip, they say I'm fine
I disagree, I've lost my mind

    General CommentIsn't this the one they almost didn't put on the album? So of course it ended up being one of their most popular songs, haha.

    Anyways, I love this song (is it just me or is it a little bit Tokyo Police Club, too?), and the lyrics are fairly self-explanatory. The "I've lost my mind" is perfect, though!
