Original song inspired by dorm life

How do I get drunk tonight? That’s the question on my mind
Gonna steal my father’s wine Gonna drink a beer or nine-
Ty two (too) much booze

I could chalk my license or just get high
Break a few laws just to cloud my mind
Things get boring when you’re back at home
Help me find my lighter, we’ll roast this bone

Pull the cork, misplace the bottle
Pop the tab, knock it back full throttle

Brett walks in and crashes on the couch
Emptied my bottles, that gargantuan louse
I’m half dead, wasted and dry
Lick drops from this bottle until I die

Who’s gonna bury me? Let’s dig up some dirt and see
Or maybe I’ll just burn, throw my ashes in an urn
(earn) a dollar, die tomorrow
Earn a dollar, to die ‘morrow

I’m just one legal year short
Of easily partaking in my favorite sport
But the GPA reads a different story
I should buckle down and avoid the liquid glory

Have I learned my lesson? I think so sir
If you’re gonna give me one more shot then pour it right here

A: I’m drunk B: In love C: It’s fate D: All of the above
Fail this test, succeed at school
Cut class, smoke cigs, you golden fool

How to get drunk off my mind? that’s the question of the night
Gonna steal my father’s wine, gonna drink a beer or nine-
Ty two (too) much booze

Too much booze
Too much booze
No such thing as too much booze (earn a dollar, to die ‘morrow)
No such thing as too much booze (earn a dollar, to die ‘morrow)
No such thing as too much booze (earn a dollar, to die ‘morrow)

Rex Yehudi (shoham) gave feedback to J. Wager for “Lehman Blues”:
I like the guitar work on this track, a lot!

I also like the vocal work near the end, as well as the production value of the whole piece, overall.

All I would suggest is that your main vocal line could have something more to it. If it's not lumped together with anything else, I would say give it another go, or else (maybe also...) add some layers to the main line.

Funny, tune :) Thanks! -Shoham

Thank you, Zoberman. Much appreciated the purchase as well! I'll have an album out this summer if things stay on track
