The More I Drink

by Screedler on May 28, 2016

Somehow I missed this one when it came out years ago. It has been in heavy rotation as background music at my store for the past couple of days. Maybe the muzak programmers think it increases alcohol sales.

While the appeal to the casual listener was probably it’s comedic take on the alcoholic condition; the chorus is an accurate description of standard operating procedure for one who drinks too much.

Most “Are you an alcoholic?” quizzes include the question, “Do you find it hard to quit drinking once you start?” This song answers and illustrates the ever increasing need for alcohol and all the troubles it usually brings.

“The More I Drink” is a song recorded by American country music singer Blake Shelton. It was released in July 2007 as the second single from his album Pure BS. It was written by David Lee Murphy, Chris DuBois and Dave Turnbull.

He was sittin’ at the bar
Sippin’ on a regular Coke
We were drinkin’ and smokin’
And makin’ him the butt of our jokes

We all said, Man, what happened to you?
Why can’t you just have a few?
He said, I would if I could
But it’s probably best that I don’t

‘Cause the more I drink, the more I drink
Then I’m the world’s greatest lover and a dancin’ machine
I get loud, I get proud and it gets worse

Well, if I have one I’ll have thirteen
Now there ain’t no in between
‘Cause the more I drink, the more I drink

A couple of cold ones
And somebody hands me a shot
Hell, even buck-tooth and bow-legged women
Start lookin’ hot

And pretty soon I’m bummin’ cigarettes
And sweet talkin’ some big brunette
Yeah, once I get on a roll
Ain’t no tellin’ where I’ll stop

‘Cause the more I drink, the more I drink
Then I’m the world’s greatest lover and a dancin’ machine
I get loud, I get proud and it gets worse

Well, if I have one I’ll have thirteen
Now there ain’t no in between
‘Cause the more I drink, the more I drink, the more I drink, yep, yep

Hmm, that’s what I’m talking about

Man, if I have one I’ll have thirteen
And they can’t get me off the karaoke machine
The more I drink, the more I drink
Yeah, the more I drink, the more I drink, the more I drink
