“Getting Rid of Today” lyrics

Getting Rid of Today
© 2005 Larry Krone

Today I woke up on the wrong side
Of the bed, I didn’t want to be alive
I feel like a slave
And I forgot to shave
They don’t like that at my job
What happened to my pride

I’m going out tonight, but I just feel like dying
Bartender pretends she doesn’t see me crying
I can’t let this misery
Take control of me
I need a happy hour to make me feel alright again

I’m gonna have fun tonight if it kills me
Pour another shot, I’ll pay
I’ll be chasing the dawn
Later on
But now I’m getting rid of today

Whiskey is the poison that I’m needing
To kill the memories of this morning
That mean, ornery man
Isn’t who I am
These days I hate the way that I’m being

I’m gonna have fun tonight if it kills me
Pour another shot, I’ll pay
I’ll be chasing the dawn
Later on
But now I’m getting rid of today

What would I do without Jack Daniel’s
I hate to think
I know what I don’t like
My job
My life
And I know what I love
To drink

I’m gonna have fun tonight if it kills me
Pour another shot, I’ll pay
I’ll be chasing the dawn
Later on
But now I’m getting rid of today

Yeah, now I’m getting rid of today
I just need to forget about today
