"Drunk Girls" as written by Gavin Russom, James Jeremiah Murphy and Patrick Mahoney....
Drunk girls
Drunk girls
Drunk girls
Drunk girls

Drunk girls
Drunk girls cause a couple of heart attacks
Drunk girls
Drunk girls are unusually mild
Drunk boys
Drunk boys keep in pace with the pedophiles
Drunk girls
Drunk girls are boringly wild

Drunk girls
Drunk girls get invitations from nations
Drunk girls
They got the patience of a million saints
Drunk boys
They steal, they steal from the cupboards
Drunk girls
Drunk girls like to file complaints

Drunk girls
Drunk girls are like a night of simplicity
Drunk girls
They need a lover who is smarter than me
Drunk boys
Drunk boys, we walk like pedestrians
Drunk girls
Drunk girls wait an hour to pee

Drunk girls
Drunk girls know that love is an astronaut
Drunk girls
It comes back, but it's never the same
Drunk boys
Drunk boys, drunk boys, drunk boys, drunk boys
Drunk girls
Drunk girls can be just as insane

Oh oh oh
I believe in waking up together
So oh oh
That means making eyes across the room

Drunk girls
Just 'cause I'm shallow doesn't mean that I'm heartless
Drunk girls
Just 'cause I'm heartless doesn't mean that I'm mean
Drunk boys
Sometimes love gives us too many options
Drunk girls
Just 'cause you're hungry doesn't mean that you're lean

Drunk girls
I've heard lies that could curdle your heartstrings
Drunk girls
A couple truths, maybe burn out your eyes
Drunk boys
Drunk boys leave their irons in the fireplace
Drunk girls
'Cause drunk girls give them too many tries

Drunk girls, drunk girls, drunk girls, drunk girls

Oh oh oh
I believe in waking up together
Oh oh oh
I believe I'm waking up, but no promises
Oh oh oh
I believe in waiting out the weather
Oh oh oh
I believe in making up

The day becomes the night
The day becomes the night
The day becomes the night
The day becomes the night

Honestly, honestly, honestly
Unless it hurts, why do it?

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Oh

    General CommentI think this song is about the obvious: drunk girls. But I think it's more interesting that he goes a bit deeper than that. I think its about drunkness reflecting true human nature instead of people conforming to social norms. For example when he says "Just 'cause I'm shallow doesn't mean that I'm heartless", I think he is saying that just because hes going after attractiveness doesn't mean hes a bad person. He then follows that up with "Just 'cause I'm heartless doesn't mean that I'm mean" is referencing that even though he may be heartless in terms of not wanting a relationship with the women he is fraternizing with, he isn't being mean, as both parties (drunk girl and himself) want the physical release that comes with, for lack of a better term, hooking up.

    General Commentit sounds more like "drunk girls are abhorrently wild," than "drunk girls are boringly wild".

    General CommentReminds me of "The Girls Want to Be with the Girls" by Talking Heads for obvious reasons.

    General CommentI believe it's "Drunk girls know that love is an astronaut," not asterisk

    Sounds like "I believe I'm waking up, but no promises"

    Other than those, very nice job. Awesome song, I hope the new album is as good as his first two

    General CommentTwo things:

    1. During the chorus of "drunk boys" after : it comes back, but it's never the same, I think he sings: drunk boys love such women for free

    2. At the end, I think it goes: "just be honest with me, honestly, honestly," instead of just three honestly's, but I could be mishearing it. The whole section is a mess without knowing the words before hand, so kudos on picking out the "unless" line.

    Song MeaningHaha I think the line "drunk boys, we walk like pedestrians" is talking about how when guys are drunk and have their mind set on something they do like a ridiculous "serious walk" across the room thats kind of like a fast walk you would do on a street

    "Drunk girls are boringly wild"
    ^ This is so true. pretty self explanatory but drunk girls are always predictably saying "oh my god! i love to party! i'm so drunk!" but never actually do anything exciting

    General CommentI keep hearing "Drunk girls are boring me wild" which is an awesome line even if it's wrong.

    Lyric CorrectionThe last bit before the Heys goes:

    "Just be honest with me, honestly, honestly; unless it hurts my feelings."

    Perfectly describes the culture this song describes :)
