(Nasally) Ya say ya wanna look good? Ya say ya wanna look young? Ya say ya wanna take on the world again? (clap) Tell ya what I’m gonna do! The secret is not in any little bottle. No sir! Not a bit of it! Step right over, friend. I’m gonna tell ya the secret that works! The Golden Key. The Fountain of Truth. Yessiree bob! The Blessed Path. The open door!
Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Do you pop out at parties? Are you unpoopular? (clap) Do people turn off lights and hide when you come by? Do some people refuse to return your calls? Do you find yourself alone most of the time? Are you under threat of being fired? Are you sick of forgetting where you parked? Do you wake up in the morning or come to? Tell ya what I’m gonna do. Step over here, friend. I’ll give you the secret. (There ya go, and when you get there, there ya are!)
Part of the problem is the solution. You are drinking a solution that lies. It says everything will be okay, if you drink. Drink more. Yessirreebob! Recognize it? (clap) You take a drink or two after work and then… It’s morning, you remember nothing, then The whole shebang starts all over again. You started out inviting people over But, they used up your ***** and dope. And there you were staggering Down to the store to buy more Struggling to write your name on the check. But, what the heck. You were popular But no more. All that is left is the store.
So, ya say ya wanna get better, fast? Don’t put the cork in the bottle. Throw the bottle away. Don’t buy more. That’s the real score, the secret. (clap) You can’t have it both ways. Either you wanna get better and live Or you will keep on trying to give up Without surrendering. It’s amazing. You’ll feel like **** for a while But you do now, and never smile. (clap) So, that’s the way it gets done. It happens to everyone who wants To get off the merry-go-round And settle down to living, and smiling. After you quit the daily drinking bit.
