“You Can’t Drown Your Troubles”

You Can’t Drown Your Troubles

©2015 Larry Krone


Hello all you drinkers out there

I’m a drinker too

Like you, I drink too many when

There’s nothing else to do


When I have a lot of troubles

The solution I can find

Is to sit down with a bottle

And drink them off my mind


If they stay in there I just drink more

Hoping they will drown

But they just put their speedos on

And really go to town


Now I don’t want to dash your hopes

But you’re not gonna win

-But don’t worry-

You can’t drown your troubles

But you can teach them to swim
