"Whiskey Hangover" as written by Salvatore P. Erna, James Shannon Larkin, Rob Merrill and Tony Rombola....
O what if I never wanna be sober?
So what if I wanna be numb all the time?
I can't justify why I'd wanna go slower
Taking my time just ain't my style, yeah

I walk dead or alive
I waste my time whenever I like
I'm feelin ok with my whiskey hangover

So what you cleaned your act up so far
So what if I'm pissing into the wind (again)?
Have you ever thought that I'm not who you are? (baby)
'cause even when I lose I know how to win again and again
So sick of you preaching all the time
Just keep your shitty advice inside

'cause I walk dead or alive
I waste my time whenever I like
I'm feelin ok with my whiskey hangover
Oh yeah yeah
'cause I walk dead or alive
I waste my time whenever I like
I'm feelin ok with my whiskey hangover
Oh yeah
Oh yeah!!
Lets go!

One sip ain't gunna do shit
On the 2nd sip I begin to admit
That the 3rd one down is what makes me feel alright
And number 4 I slam down to the floor
By 5 I'm ready to fight all night
And then 6, 7, 8 to make me break your face sometimes

'cause I walk dead or alive
I waste my time whenever I like
I'm feelin ok with my whiskey hangover
Oh yeah yeah
'cause I walk dead or alive
I waste my time whenever I like
I'm feelin ok with my whiskey hangover
With my whiskey hangover
With my whiskey hangover
With my whiskey hangover
With my whiskey hangover
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah...

    General Comment When I first heard this song it hit home to me. I'm a drinker and I fucking hate people who quit drinking and then preach. (ex. JAMES PUSSY HETFIELD ). This song is about being able to drink if you want to. If you have a problem with me drinking then please go fuck yourself. IMO!

    General CommentFirst comment yeah!!! it sounds to me like its about somebody who is drunk all the time, and is tired of people telling him to sober up.

    General CommentI gotta tell ya, as an alcoholic (and a DAMNED proud one at that) . . . I really like this song. It kinda reminds me of how much I enjoy being me (that is to say, a drinker).

    General CommentThis song is pretty weak by Godsmack's standards. I know they've never been a band who played complex stuff, but this song is much simpler than their past material. The lyrics also sound like they were written in 2 minutes, they're kinda embarassing to be honest.

    I like Godsmack and I want their next album to be great, but if it's anything like this song, I'm afraid they've decided to go down the Puddle Of Mudd or Hinder route

    General CommentI FUCKING LOVE THIS SONG!!! Yes, it is a simple song, but its really good.I don't drink much( because i am under age, it sucks)so i cant fully relate to this song. But, it kinda reminds me of when I'm in school. I sit around and waste my time. "I waste my time whenever i like". That's what i always wanted to say to the teachers.And also "just keep you shitty advice inside". I also like that because the teachers are always telling me i shouldn't waste me time and stupid shit like that. Yes, i know its about drinking, but im just saying that is how I relate to this song.It really reminds me of how im always saying the teachers dont have control over me, they think they can boss me around. Anyways, Kickass song and one of the best Metal bands today!!! ROCK ON GODSMACK!!!

    My OpinionSully has stated that he writes everything from his experiences. This song to me is about DENIAL and REBELLION. Sully may be a hard drinker (doubt it, based on his religious leanings) or maybe just gets hammered every once in awhile and someone evidentially is worried about him, based on their own experience. Or, on the flip-side he is writing about someone he has encountered that basically said these words to him. Or: it is a mash up of the two. (I really like the “laugh” after “so what you’ve cleaned your act up so far”: AWESOME use of the Sully laugh!!! …I mean everyone slips up, so the laugh is PERFECT!)
