Buy Me a Drink (a song)

Buy me a drink 'till I'm sober
Buy me a full set of ears
'Cause I'm rich in what matters
And poor in what counts.

I'm sailing South on a bucket of peas
You're heading North on the wind
'Cause I've got honey and money and pork chops
and you've got whispers and slippers and cheese.

Oh...
Buy me a drink 'till I'm sober
Buy me a full set of ears
'Cause I'm rich in what matters
And poor in what counts.

I'm sitting here wishing you'd call me
And you're sitting there wishing I'd go.
'Cause I've got three cups of buffalo grass
And you've got four and more to sew.

Buy me a drink 'till I'm sober
Buy me a full set of ears
'Cause I'm rich in what matters
And poor in what counts.

I'm wishing the sun would start rising
You're wishing the dough would start, too
'Cause I've got bottles and baubles and donuts
and you've got corn cobs and door knobs and glue.

Buy me a drink 'till I'm sober
Buy me a full set of ears
'Cause I'm rich in what matters
And poor in what counts.

Oh...
Buy me a drink 'till I'm sober
Buy me a full set of ears
'Cause I'm rich in what matters
And poor in what counts.

Like the song, and in honor of it I'd like to just share one verse from my favorit drinking song:

"Well I walked up to the bar
I put down my platnum card
And ordered 50 long necks for my new friends
And as the bar maid passed them out
Before we chugged them down
I held mine up, said 'Here's to us!' and then
This blonde slid up to me
Said, 'That was awful sweet!'
And I saw her boyfriend wide as he was tall
He broke up our hug
With a 6' 5" shove
And I found myself slammed up against the wall

Why does everybody want to kick my ass?
I'm just trying to have a little fun
For all the ones who can't
So just because I kiss the prettiest girls
And I drive my truck too fast
Why does everybody want to kick my ass?"

I would like to thank the last commenter for sharing his song. Obviously he is new to "Life in the Slow Lane", where we prefer to say, "Why does everyone want to kick my buttocks?" or "Why does everyone want to kick my unmentionable?" or, even better, "Why does everone want to inflict constructive criticism upon my hind end?"
