AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DRINKS

My soon to be ex-wife
And my used to be best friend Mike
Are Leaving me here in Tennessee for a world wide cruise...

Barkeep poured Long Island tea..
Right then it occurred to me...
I'll plan my own little trip ....to take the edge off this... distressing news...

I'll go
Down to the islands for some 151
Become a full fledged member of Canadian Club..
Chase that little worm... clear cross Mexico
I'll have a slice of lime with my Tanqueray
Across the pond when I invade the UK...
Then I'll sip ...some French Chablis......
I'll be feeling ...duty free!
I'm going round the world in 80 drinks..

So I ordered up a Guiness Strout..
Trying to ease any lingering doubts..
Checkin' out the barroom scene with reckless abandon..

I took off ...my wedding ring...
And gave it a Singapore sling..
When I found myself a fine blonde...
traveling companion..

From Kentucky to Texas we'll raise a little hell
With our Lone Star beer and some Rebel Yell..
Then have a pint or ten with friends I'll make in Dublin...
To Moscow by midnight for a shot of Grey Goose
Then I'll work my way back home for some 90 proof..
From my new best friend Jim Beam...
Who's still here in Tennessee
I'm going round the world in 80 drinks...

I know that one day she'll come crawling.... one last time...
But I'll take that with a grain of salt... Tequila and lime...

And go
Down to the islands for some 151
Become a full fledged member of Canadian Club..
Chase that little worm... clear cross Mexico
To Moscow by midnight for a shot of Grey Goose
Then I'll work my way back home for some 90 proof..
From my new best friend Jim Beam...
Damn... I love Tennessee
I'm goin round the world in 80 drinks...

Tag.. Wonder what Jim Beam is doin' tonight?
