There's ice on the window
Shots on the bar
The charm of this place only stretches so far
The blind dogs asleep on the old hardwood floor
Cheap plastic Christmas tree, there by the door

Salvation army bells ringing outside
While I'm trying to crawl in this bottle and hide
Bar stool is no place to spend Christmas eve
I can't find the courage to get up and leave

So take me home Alice
Put me to bed
This bottom shelf whiskey's gone straight to my head
Stay with me Alice
Sing me to sleep
I'm only as good as the company I keep

Some auto parts salesman is bending my ear
The folks in this barroom are boring me to tears
The same conversations, year after year
Got nothing in common with anyone here

So take me home Alice
Put me to bed
This bottom shelf whiskey's gone straight to my head
Stay with me Alice
Sing me to sleep
I'm only as good as the company I keep

Bills come too early
And paychecks too late
The kids have all grown up and moved out of state
This town ain't the same as it used to be
Alice says cheer up, the next ones on me

Take me home Alice
Put me to bed
This bottom shelf whiskey's gone straight to my head
Stay with me Alice
Sing me to sleep
I'm only as good as the company I keep
I'm only as good as the company I keep
I'm only as good as the company I keep
