Track Name: BBB
Song after song, line after line
Let's all get drunk and waste some time
Line after line, song after song
Let's all get wasted and try to singalong

And it's all the same faces after all these years
With the beer belly blues and their wives full o' babies
And you used to believe now it's constant reassurance
And you used to have a clue now you don't know what you're doing
You've got the beer belly blues

Blow after blow, debt after debt
As long as the shoes get shined and the suits get pressed
Debt after debt, blow after blow
Let's all get fucked up every weekend in a row

With all the worn faces after all these years
With the beer belly blues now the kids are starting school
Yeah you used to be wild but now you've got insurance
And you used to have a clue now you don't know what you're doing
You've got the beer belly blues

And I've got them too, I've got them too
I'm a real dab-hand at making plans and never following through
I've got them too - the beer belly blues
I'm full of good intentions until I hit the booze
Then it's song after song, line after line
Let's all get drunk
