I drink alone, yeah
With nobody else
I drink alone, yeah
With nobody else
You know when I drink alone
I prefer to be by myself

Every morning just before breakfast
I don't want no coffee or tea
Just me and good buddy Wiser
That's all I ever need
'Cause I drink alone, yeah
With nobody else
Yeah, you know when I drink alone
I prefer to be by myself

The other night I laid sleeping
And I woke from a terrible dream
So I caught up my pal Jack Daniel's
And his partner Jimmy Beam
And we drank alone, yeah
With nobody else
Yeah, you know when I drink alone
I prefer to be by myself

The other day I got invited to a party
But I stayed home instead
Just me and my pal Johnny Walker
And his brothers Black and Red
And we drank alone, yeah
With nobody else
Yeah, you know when I drink alone
I prefer to be by myself

My whole family done give up on me
And it makes me feel oh so bad
The only one who will hang out with me
Is my dear Old Grand-Dad
And we drink alone, yeah
With nobody else
Yeah, you know when I drink alone
I prefer to be by myself

    There's a sincerity in self-destructive acts without witnesses. I need no applause and sneers as i set my rooms to spinning. I need no discourse for my introspective critiques. Let the world fade into oblivion. I am a god of creative destructiveness; and a devil or destructive creativeness. I exist in a realm where sinner and sin coalesce into rumination. I need no approval. I need no disdain. I've got a bottle of insight and an endless pool of confusion. I explore alone. I travel alone. I lose alone. I question my unfettered loneliness and i drink alone.

    Don't want to drink with nobody else. Nobody else all has germs and bacterias from hell.
    I keep my germs all to myself
    I sneeze alone..
    I pee alone...
    I cough alone..
    I sleep alone..
    I am SAFE
