i am an alcoholic lyrics – nofx

i liked going to school,
i didn’t want to fool around with drugs
cuz all of my friends were dropping out
i had to get stuff done, i wasn’t fun
i didn’t try pot ’til i was 21,
but now i’m overcompensating

i’d like to see what morning looks like
don’t wanna drink pint after pint
i wanna wake up without feeling sick
but i can’t cuz i’m a drug-abusing alcoholic
i can’t cuz i’m a drug-abusing alcoholic
i can’t cuz i’m a drug-abusing alcoholic
i can’t cuz i’m a drug-abusing alcoholic

at 28 i realized
hydrocodone was pretty great
for hangovers and late night hangs
i decided to spend my life having the best of times
it’s too bad most of them i’ll probably forget

and now i know what morning looks like
but only when i greet it from the previous night
my friends are telling me that i need to find a clinic
but i won’t cuz i’m a drug-addicted alcoholic
i won’t cuz i’m a drug-addicted alcoholic
i won’t cuz i’m a drug-addicted alcoholic
i won’t cuz i’m a drug-addicted alcoholic

can’t stop taking drugs
