about

I like songs where later verses change our interpretation of what came before. I think that this and "Stale Tequila" are about as far in that direction as I can go.

lyrics

You're the tea in my teacup.
You're the beer in my glass.
You're the whiskey in my coffee.
I know that we're gonna last.
I know we're sure gonna last.

CHORUS:
And I can't live without you, baby.
You just smooth all my troubles away.
You've become quite a habit to me;
I need you more each and every day.

You're the heroin in my needle.
You're the cocaine on my spoon.
You make me so high I feel like I could fiy.
You've got me howling at the moon.
You've got me howling at the moon.

[CHORUS]

You're the rock in my crack pipe.
You're the monkey on my back.
You know how much I need you,
so please won't you take me back?
Oh, please won't you take me back?

CHORUS:
'Cause I can't live without you, baby.
You just smooth all my troubles away.
You've become quite a habit to me;
I need you more each and every day.
I want you more each and every day.
