What's The Use Of Getting Sober (When You're Gonna Get Drunk Again) Lyrics

Artist: Joe Jackson
Album: Jumpin' Jive

DV = deep voice, SV = squeaky voice

DV: Boy, you listen to your old Pappy
SV: Yeah, Pappy
DV: And stop drinking so much
SV: I'm-I'm ain't been doing so much drinking, Pappy
DV: Shut up, boy! You drink all day and you drink all night and you know, son, that that ain't right
SV: Oh Pappy, you just give me a chance. I, I can, I . . .
DV: Shut up, boy! Boy, you're lookin' thin as a twig
SV: I know that . . .
DV: Look likes your dear old Pappy - about to blow your wig
SV: Oh I'm gonna blow my wig, Pappy

What's the use of getting sober
When you're gonna get drunk again
Oh Sam done something fine
When he bought that good whiskey, beer and wine
I love my whiskey and I love my gin
Every time you see me I'm in my sin
So what's the use of getting sober
When you're gonna get drunk again

DV:
I went out last night about half past one
Thought I'd whoop it up a little and have some fun
I got me a half pint about half past two
Mmm, mmm, the way I was feeling you know what I wanna do
Got me a pint about half past four
Felt so good, went out and got me some more
Got me a quart about half past five
Boy, that was so nice didn't know if I was dead or alive

So what's the use of getting sober If you're gonna get drunk again
Oh Sam done something fine
When he bought that good whiskey, beer and wine
I love my whiskey and I love my gin
Every time you see me I'm in my sin
So what's the use of getting sober
When you're gonna get drunk again

Well I've been thinking
But I keep drinking
I guess I'm 'bout lose my mind
