When I wake up she’ll be the first thing that I think of
Of sunny days when she was mine
I’ll long for her, to love, to kiss her and to hold her
But tonight she’ll be the last thing on my mind

Cause I have a date with the captain’s daughter
I’ll stay up late numbing the pain with Mary Jane
In the morning I’ll go back to longing for and missing her
But tonight I’m drinking to forget what’s her name

There was a time her love felt like a prison sentence
So I escaped but now she won’t let me back in
There’s not one hung over sober moment I don’t miss her
So tonight I’ll medicate myself again

I have a date with the captain’s daughter
I’ll stay up late numbing the pain with Mary Jane
In the morning I’ll go back to longing for and missing her
But tonight I’m drinking to forget what’s her name

Life of the party, goodtime Charlie, drinking top shelf
Drowning my sorrows and my paycheck
But her goodnight kiss hell I don’t miss when I’m shooting doubles
So pour another round cause I ain’t finished yet

I have a date with the captain’s daughter
I’ll stay up late numbing the pain with Mary Jane
In the morning I’ll go back to longing for and missing her
But tonight I’m drinking, last night I was drinking
Tomorrow night I’ll be drinking to forget what’s her name
