Song Meaning
Verse 1
I'm tired of putting up
With your sober wit
Tired of looking at you
Through an alcoholic haze
You better change
I'm begging you please
'Cause if you don't start drinkin'
I'm gonna leave
Verse 2
I wake up in the morning
I'm under the roof
But I get no sympathy
Baby you're too aloof
You better change
Yes, I'm begging you please
'Cause if you don't start drinkin'
I'm gonna leave
Verse 3
Budweiser, Budweiser, Miller Lite
Take a little nip baby it's alright
All a fellow wants is company
Come on baby have a taste with me
Verse 4
Yeah, you say it's alright baby
You don't care
But as soon as I indulge
I get that icy stare
You better change
I'm begging you please
'Cause if you don't start drinkin'
I'm gonna leave
Verse 5
Don't give me no lectures
'Bout stress and strife
Soberiety
Just ain't my way of life
You better change
Yes, I'm begging you please
Well if you don't start drinkin'
I'm gonna leave
Verse 6
Yeah, Budweiser, Budweiser, Miller Lite
Take a little nip baby it's alright
All a fellow wants is company
Come on baby have some fun with me
Verse 7
Yeah, you say it's alright baby
You don't care
But as soon as I indulge
I get that icy stare
You better change
Yes, I'm begging you please
'Cause if you don't start drinkin'
I'm gonna leave
Verse 8
Well, if you don't start drinkin'
I'm gonna leave
Yes, if you don't start drinkin'
I'm gonna leave
