The Old Alcoholic

I feel that beer a crawling
Through my blood again
I ain’t been sober
since I don’t know when
A homeless alcoholic
they describe me
I think I’ve lost my liver
and half a kidney

I feel the sun glowing
through a broken window
Burning through my eyelids
like it’s melting snow
I’ve got hells hangover
And it’s killing me
I think I lost that liver
and one kidney

I’ve never got no money
yet I always buy a beer
I beg throughout the city
and rely on Christmas cheer
My eyes are so blood shot
I can hardly see
I know I’ve lost my liver
and now both kidneys

I died on a Monday
my friends aren’t divine
They came to the service
for free church wine
The examiner found my body
preserved perfectly
Well except for my liver
and those damn kidneys
