"I Got Drunk" as written by and Jeff Tweedy Jay Farrar....
Well I took a fifth, and I poured me a shot
And I thought about all the things that I haven't got
And I drank that down, and I poured me some more
Kept drinking and pouring till I felt the floor

I got drunk and I fell down
I got drunk and I fell down

Another slow day in this damn town
Keep asking yourself "why am I still hangin' around?"
You spend half your time just staring into a beer
What you need, you know, you can't find here

I got drunk and I fell down
I got drunk and I fell down

Well I took a fifth, and I poured me a shot
And I thought about all the things that I haven't got
And I drank that down, and I poured me some more
Kept drinking and pouring till I felt the floor

I got drunk and I fell down
I got drunk and I fell down

I got drunk and I fell down
I got drunk and I fell down

    General Commentwhat a great song. As for the meaning, well I think its a satirical commentary on the use of slave labour in breweries in third world countries. Or it could be just about getting pissed

    General CommentOne of the great drinking songs of all time. "I got drunk and I fell down." What more can you say?
    And I don't even drink anymore.
