With a drink in your hand,
Thinking you’re really cool
Because it’s your seventh drink tonight.
You’re at the point
Where your speech is slurred
And you feel you could do anything.
Stop just a minute
And take a look at yourself.
You’re a blind drunk staggering,
With a lot less brain cells
Than you had back in year eight.
You’re not cool,
You’re just plain stupid.
Is it really worth going somewhere,
Drinking some alcohol and ending up
Being the laughing stock of the night?
Don’t kid yourself.
You don’t need to drink to have fun
Or better yet
You don’t even have to drink at all.
Just because everyone else is doing it,
Doesn’t mean that
It’s the cool thing to do.
There’s no real point in it at all.
We shouldn’t be drinking
Just to fit in,
Or getting drunk because
It’s supposedly fun.
What’s fun about having a hang over
The next morning,
Feeling like trash just so you can
Act like a clown
And damage your brain even further?
We hear of alcohol fuelled violence
And many stupid acts
That were committed
Whilst the committer
Of those actions was highly intoxicated.
Stop just a minute,
And think about your life.
Is it really worth wasting your money
So you can be a court jester,
Or so you can feel a slight buzz?
Think of all that you could do instead
And how much more respect
That people would have for you
If you didn’t drink at all
Or at least didn’t get drunk
At nearly every party.
Think about your actions
Before you end up doing something
That you will haunt you
For the rest of your life.
