I'm tired of putting up
With your sober ways
Tired of looking at you
Through an alcoholic haze
You better change
I'm begging you please
'cause if you don't start drinkin'
I'm gonna leave

I wake up in the morning
I'm under the roof
But I get no sympathy
Baby you're too aloof
You better change
Yes, I'm begging you please
'cause if you don't start drinkin'
I'm gonna leave

Budweiser, Budweiser, Miller Lite
Take a little nip baby it's alright
All a fellow wants is company
Come on baby have a taste with me

Yeah, you say it's alright baby
You don't care
But as soon as I indulge
I get that icy stare
You better change
I'm begging you please
'cause if you don't start drinkin'
I'm gonna leave

Don't give me no lectures
'Bout stress and strife
So-ber-i-ety
Just ain't my way of life
You better change
Yes, I'm begging you please
'cause if you don't start drinkin'
I'm gonna leave

Yeah, Budweiser, Budweiser, Miller Lite
Take a little nip baby it's alright
All a fellow wants is company
Come on baby have some fun with me

Yeah, you say it's alright baby
You don't care
But as soon as I indulge
I get that icy stare
You better change
I'm begging you please
'cause if you don't start drinkin'
I'm gonna leave

Well, if you don't start drinkin'
I'm gonna leave
Yes, if you don't start drinkin'
I'm gonna leave
