i shouldn't talk when i drink

people say the strangest things
you won't believe what leaves their lips
listen closely at a party
they'll let some secret slip

i'm afraid i've been a victim
a little drink and the words flow
i'm liable to be opinionated
and talk about things that i don't know

i shouldn't talk when i drink
i'm liable to say what i think
(so i should) take my advice 'cause i know best
(so i should) drink a little more and talk less

i can say the oddest things
sometimes even i am surprised
i'm clever at conversation
i dot my t's and cross my i's

sittin' across you from the table
we shared a bottle of wine
it was there that i told you
that i wanted you for mine

i shouldn't talk when i drink
i'm liable to say what i think
(so i should) take my advice 'cause i know best
(so I should) drink a little more and talk less

(so i should) take my advice 'cause i know best
(so I should) drink a little more and talk less
