Why Don’t We Get Drunk

by Marvin Gardens

from the album A White Sport Coat and A Pink Crustacean



Lyrics

I really do appreciate the fact you’re sittin’ here
Your voice sounds so wonderful
But your face don’t look too clear
So, bar maid bring a pitcher
Another round of brew
Honey, why don’t we get drunk and screw

Why don’t we get drunk and screw
I just bought a water bed
It’s filled up for me and you
They say you are a snuff queen
Honey, I don’t think that’s true
So, why don’t we get drunk and screw

Pick it Coral Reefers here we go…

Why don’t we get drunk and screw
I just bought a water bed
It’s filled up for me and you
They say you are a snuff queen
Honey, I don’t think that’s true
So, why don’t we get drunk and screw

Jimmy’s Note:

This song was written as a piece of total satire when I did my first album in Nashville. I was hearing a lot of very suggestive country songs-in particular, Conway Twitty’s “Let’s Go All The Way.” I figured I would write a song that would leave no doubt in anybody’s mind. I thought back to a late night in an Atlanta diner where I was eating and watching this out-of-focus businessman trying to pick up a hooker. That’s all the inspiration I needed.
