Pass It Round

lyrics

my hand's were feeling frisky so I gave em work to do
like a monkey's paw they've rubbed me raw
and left me black and blue

my mouth was running wild so I let it go to seed
now it has grown all on its own
a garden of atrocities

pass it round, pass it round, let the bottle come this way
when all my wits have left me maybe alcohol will stay
gather round, gather round, and raise a glass up high
for life's a tale told by a fool, there ain't no reason why

my heart was getting restless so i let it out to play
now it ain't around cause that miserable hound
just up and ran away

and I took out my soul to wash it cause I thought it stunk
but oh what a drag, that miserable rag
when it ran through the dryer it shrunk

pass it round, pass it round, let the bottle come this way
when all my wits have left me maybe alcohol will stay
gather round, gather round, and raise a glass up high
for life's a tale told by a fool, there ain't no reason why

I put my brain in a bottle and threw it on out to sea
I hope someday it finds someone
who'll use it better than me
