(Don Pfrimmer/Rivers Rutherford)

Ah, sit down here with me now.

Baby, you look good tonight,
That cotton dress sure suits you right,
But I may not be thinkin' what you're thinkin'.
Before I go an' promise you,
All those things that lovers do,
Girl, you need to know that I've been drinkin'.
Under normal circumstances, I'd never lie to you,
But the devil in me dances when I've had one or two.

You know love and alcohol,
Can't trust that stuff at all.
It always seems to get the best of me.
The combination's dangerous,
Every time I mix 'em up,
I end up sayin' somethin' I don't mean.
Well, it ain't my fault:
Blame it on love and alcohol.

Now if you happen to decide,
To take me home with you tonight,
Baby, I'll be glad to go along.
But there'll be no "I told you so's".
I'll tell you now so now you know:
Come tomorrow morning, I'll be gone.
Now before you drink another,
Before I finish mine, I think I oughta warn you one more time.

You know love and alcohol,
Can't trust that stuff at all.
It always seems to get the best of me.
The combination's dangerous,
Every time I mix 'em up,
I end up sayin' somethin' I don't mean.
Well, it ain't my fault:
Blame it on love and alcohol.

C'mon now.

Hey bartender, we need a couple more over here, now.
I ain't done yet.

You know love and alcohol,
Can't trust that stuff at all.
It always seems to get the best of me.
The combination's dangerous,
Every time I mix 'em up,
I end up sayin' somethin' I don't mean.
Well, it ain't my fault:
Blame it on love and alcohol.

You know, it ain't my fault:
Blame it on love and alcohol.

Ah, baby, you're lookin' better all the time.
