Lyrics
1. When I was young, restless and wild I lost count of the speeding tickets I compiled Then came the day they took my license away And I had to beg from my friends in this way: Please, won't you drive me to drink? Oh, please, won't you drive me to drink? It's five miles to the bar and I ain't got no car So, please, won't you drive me to drink? 2. I met a sweet girl, but homely as sin After ten dates, she invited me in But when she turned the lights low I felt no urge below So I leaned close and said soft and slow: Oh, please, won't you drive you to drink? Ah, please, won't you drive me to drink? I want to be your lover, but I can't do it sober So, please, won't you drive me to drink? 3. Then that girl became my wife We settled into a comfortable life I watched the TV while she used her fingernail file But then she asked me after a while Oh, please let me drive you to drink I really want to drive you to drink Our marriage ain't over, but I can't stand you sober So, please let me drive you to drink 4. And now my dear wife's passed away It's now been a year to the day I've moved next to the bar 'Cause I still got no car When I toast to her memory, I say: My wife, she drove me to drink That woman really drove me to drink Yes, my dear wife put joy in my life 'Cause she always would drive me to drink Ending: So, please, won't you drive me to drink? Oh, please, won't you drive me to drink? It's five miles to the bar and I ain't got no car So, please, won't you drive me to drink?
