Lyrics

Falling Down Drunk (If You Were Standing Up)

She’s getting into your head again and swimming in your brains
You’ve been trying to drown her out with whiskey just to ease the pain
May not be my place to say but it seems to me of late
You’ve been making that bar stool your own personal real estate

And I know, yeah it feels alright
Until you stand upright
And there you go
Hey, talking real slow but your head is in a spin
Take a minute to realize the shape you’re in, oh yeah
Someone will catch your fall with any luck
You’d be falling down drunk, if you were standing up

You’ve been sitting there way too long looking ‘bout half past dead
Pick yourself up shake it off, now ain’t that what your mama said
You want to buy another round but your money didn’t last
Want to raise another toast but you can barely raise your glass

Outside, yeah it’s broad day light
In here it looks like night
And there you go
Hey, talking real slow but your head is in a spin
Take a minute to realize the shape you’re in, oh yeah
Someone will catch your fall with any luck
You’d be falling down drunk, if you were standing up
Falling Down Drunk (If You Were Standing Up)

She’s getting into your head again and swimming in your brains
You’ve been trying to drown her out with chemicals to ease the pain
May not be my place to say but it seems to me of late
You’ve been making that bar stool your own personal real estate

And I know, yeah it feels alright
Until you stand upright
And there you go
Hey, talking real slow but your head is in a spin
Take a minute to realize the shape you’re in, oh yeah
Someone will catch your fall with any luck
You’d be falling down drunk, if you were standing up

You’ve been sitting there way too long looking ‘bout half past dead
Pick yourself up shake it off, now ain’t that what your mama said
You want to buy another round but your money didn’t last
Want to raise another toast but you can barely raise your glass

Outside, yeah it’s broad day light
In here it looks like night
And there you go
Hey, talking real slow but your head is in a spin
Take a minute to realize the shape you’re in, oh yeah
Someone will catch your fall with any luck
You’d be falling down drunk, if you were standing up
