My good buddy asked me, "Buddy, why don't you drink"
And I said, "It's probably better I don't"
He said, "There's a lot of girls in this here bar that we could chase"
I said, "Trust me, it's probably better I don't"

'Cause I used to be an all nighter
I'm a hell of a back slider
I've been around the block more than a time or two
And I can promise you I've drank my weight in booze
And I've been known to get on stage in nothin' but my boots

So it's better I don't 'cause believe me I will
I get looser than a line on a fishing reel
Dare me don't do, don't think I won't
Take it all off, turn it all on
Get buck wild, hell bent, and stoned
It's better I don't

Well, I was wearing the cuffs when the warden said, "Just tell me the truth"
And I said, "Sir, it's probably better I don't"
And I was up on the stand, and the judge said, "Just tell me what happened, man"
And I said, "Buddy, it's probably better I don't"

But since you asked, I was mindin' my own business at a hundred and five
I was county road cruisin' out runnin' the blue lights
I was on the home stretch, I was roundin' that last curve
Well, I ran out of gas, and that's when I learned

So it's better I don't 'cause believe me I will
I get looser than a line on a fishing reel
Dare me don't do, don't think I won't
Take it all off, turn it all on
Get buck wild, hell bent, and stoned
It's better I don't

Now, there's things I don't remember, there's things that I do
But I don't know the half of what I got into

And it's better I don't 'cause believe me I will
Yeah, I get looser than a line on your fishing reel
Dare me don't do, don't think I won't
Take it all off, turn it all on
Get buck wild, hell bent, and stoned
Drunk dial somebody on the phone
Drink too many beers and drive a Harley home
It's better I don't

Yeah, it's better I don't
Yeah, it's better I don't
