Drink
(Kurt Fortmeyer/Luke Robinson)

I thought I had it good back in our old neighborhood
When all my friends were feeling friction from their dads
They had to take out the trash do their homework cut the grass
And never stray from the straight and narrow path
But my role model was a man who loved a bottle
More than he loved his wife and kid
It’s no wonder I turned out like I did

You taught me how to hang out in the bar rooms
And not come home until love had gone to sleep
Lucky kids learn good things from their fathers
All you taught me how to do was drink

Now I come home every night hug my kids kiss my wife
And I look at what your lessons led me to
I tuck the young’uns into bed and the thought runs through my head
I learned what not to do from watching you
‘Cause my role model was a man who loved a bottle
More than he loved his wife and kid
It’s no wonder I turned out like I did

You taught me how to hang out in the bar rooms
And not come home until love had gone to sleep
Lucky kids learn good things from their fathers
All you taught me how to do was drink
All you taught me how to do was drink
