Lyrics

  • TOO MUCH ALCOHOL,
  • I WENT DOWN ON 31ST STREET TO PICK UP A JUG OF ALCOHOL
  • WELL, I WENT DOWN ON 31ST STREET TO PICK UP A JUG OF ALCOHOL
  • TOLD THE MAN TO PUT IN SOME WATER
  • BUT HE WOULDN’T PUT IN A DROP AT ALL
  • I WAS DRINKIN’ MY STRAIGHT ALKI
  • AND I WENT WALKING ON DOWN THE STREET
  • WELL, I WAS DRINKIN’ MY STRAIGHT ALKI
  • AND I WENT WALKING ON DOWN THE STREET
  • WELL, MY EYES GOT SO HEAVY, I NEARLY FELL HALF ASLEEP
  • WELL, I LIKE SHERRY AND BRANDY, MY BABY SURE LIKE GIN
  • AND THAT LITTLE GIRL I GOT SURE PUT ME IN THE STATE I’M IN
  • WELL, I WENT DOWN ON 31ST STREET TO PICK UP A JUG OF ALCOHOL
  • TOLD THE MAN TO PUT IN SOME WATER
  • BUT HE WOULDN’T PUT IN A DROP AT ALL
  • WELL, WHISKEY’LL MAKE YOU DROWSY AND GIN CAN MAKE YOU THINK
  • WHEN A COMMON COLD COULD KILL YOU MY BABY TURNED ME TO DRINK
  • WELL, I WENT DOWN ON 31ST STREET TO PICK UP A JUG OF ALCOHOL
  • TOLD THE MAN TO PUT IN SOME WATER
  • BUT HE WOULDN’T PUT IN A DROP AT ALL
  • ONE HUNDRED PERCENT ALCHOL – NOW LET ME HAVE SOME
  • WELL, I LIKE SHERRY AND BRANDY, MY BABY SURE LIKE GIN
  • AND THAT LITTLE GIRL I GOT SURE PUT ME IN THE STATE I’M IN
  • WELL, I WENT DOWN ON 31ST STREET TO PICK UP A JUG OF ALCOHOL
  • TOLD THE MAN TO PUT IN SOME WATER
  • BUT HE WOULDN’T PUT IN A DROP AT ALL
  • NINETY-ONE PERCENT - BETTER MAKE IT NINETY-TWO
  • NINETY-THREE PERCENT - NINETY-FOUR, THAT’LL DO
  • NINETY-FIVE, NINETY-SIX
  • NINETY-SEVEN PERCENT, NINETY-EIGHT
  • BARTENDER, THAT’S NINETY-NINE.
  • MAKE IT ONE HUNDRED PERCENT, ONE HUNDRED PERCENT
  • ONE HUNDRED PERCENT, WANNA TRY SOME, WNNA TRY SOME,
  • ONE HUNDRED PERCENT – AND I WON’T FEEL A THING AT ALL.
