American Aquarium – Clark Ave. lyrics
[Verse 1]
In the first row apartment on the corner of Clark
Smokin' hot redhead in the parkin' lot
Shakin' that thing, showin' everything she's got
With a wink she said "We're drinkin' down at the dock"

"So boy, you outta come"
She said, "I know you're taken, but what's wrong with havin' fun?"

[Verse 2]
So we get to the bar about a quarter to ten
And the guitar's screamin' and the band kicks in
Sittin' in the corner nursin' tonic and gin
Wearin' that dress, she's sexy as sin

Good Lord, I need a drink
With a body like that, hell, it gets so hard to think

[Chorus]
When I'm sober, I pray to Jesus
When I'm drunk, that's when I talk to God
Oh the Bible and the bottle both deceive us
Into thinkin' we're somethin' we're not
Into thinkin' we're somethin' we're not

[Verse 3]
Well the drinks kept pourin' and so did my lies
And I'm sure she could see through my bourbon disguise
Hand kept crawlin' up my thigh
She said "I don't do this with most guys"

Oh Lord, we all have a scene
My heart was racin' like an engine and it's dancin' like a Harlem queen

[Verse 4]
Well the bar's shuttin' down and it's time to go
Head to her place and turn the lights down low
Headlights shoot through the front window
She said "Quick! Run! Hide! My boyfriend's home!"

Oh Lord, what have I done?
I'm a-creepin' out the back and he's stormin' through the front

[Chorus]
When I'm sober, I pray to Jesus
When I'm drunk, that's when I talk to God
Oh the Bible and the bottle both deceive us
Into thinkin' we're somethin' we're not
Into thinkin' we're somethin' we're not
