The Drinks Are On Me
(P.Mark)
From the album Go Big or Go Home

I come from a long line of barstool companions
Tell your story man have I got one for you
Life’s too short for silence
I may be right, I may be wrong
But no story ever fell on deaf ears
That had a bottle to help it along

I come from a long line of higher education
The higher I get the more my lesson gets learned
And now, now that she’d gone
I can stay out all night long
So tonight, the drinks are on me

Nevermind the place is empty
Nevermind the clock striking three
The sun rising over the city
It’s a sight you really ought to see
So fire up that jukebox
Mix the drinks up strong
She may not be here with me
But I still love that song

I come from a long line of late night walkers
Flashing neon is a siren to my soul
And at home the clock ticks like a gong
So I’ll stay out all night long
And say tonight, the drinks are on me

Bridge

I come from a long line of self-made men
Everything I got, brother I paid for in spades
I ain’t made out of money
But if I was I share the wealth
If a man’s honest with strangers
You can bet he’s honest with himself

I come from a long line of closet gamblers
Roulette wheel eyes and a crapshoot smile
And the years when winning was my style
They all come back to me for a little while
When I say tonight, the drinks are on me

And my real friends they never run away
And they smile, especially when I say
That tonight, the drinks are on me
