I took a drink
I took a drink to ease my pain Woke up feeling worse again
Took a drink and smoked the weed, searching for what we all need.
Took a drink oh I should say I was drinking night and day
I took a drink to ease my pain woke up feeling worse, worse again.
I bought one, he bought another one
Round and round that’s the way it’s done
Life in the pub, its fun and frolics
How was I supposed to know I was an alcoholic?
Ah the drink it let me down, ended up in Foxford town
In the end I couldn’t cope, asked for help at the house of hope.
Oh mercy mercy me, is there any hope for me
I had it all, threw it all away
You’ll find new ways of behaving
When you understand the craving
Understanding my despair, they gave help and healing there
