Rod Stewart – I've Been Drinking lyrics

I'm drinkin' again
Thinkin' of when
You left me
That happened once so long ago

I've been havin' a few
And wishin' that you
Were right here by my side

Well, I'm makin' the rounds
And settin' them up
A total stranger to myself
I'm just makin' a fool of myself

I'm just hopin'
That you'll come right back once, someday
But I know, I know, I know
That there's no second time around

Now, listen
I know, I know, I know, I know

Sure I know I can borrow a smoke
Or sit here all night long and tell a joke
But after all is said and done, who's gonna laugh
Who's gonna laugh at a broken, a broken heart?

I've been drinkin' again
And thinkin' of when
Of when you left me
And that weren't so long ago

I've been havin' a few
You know that you know
And wishin' that you
Were here right by my side

Now listen one time

I've been drinkin' again
I've been drinkin' again
Sometimes I can't help myself
