lyrics

They say to write about what you know
The pen's in my hand so here I go
Baby I know just what you're thinking
But I swear this song it ain't about drinking

It ain't about whiskey and it ain't about gin
It ain't about Satan and it ain't about sin
It ain't about gambling nor any kinda vice
It's not at all naughty, it's mostly nice
And honey, sugar pie, this song ain't about drinking

It ain't about killing men by the dozen
This song ain't about marrying your cousin
It ain't about robbing banks for your keep
This song ain't about doing it with sheep
And honey, sugar pie, this song ain't about drinking

It ain't about sickness and it ain't about death
It ain't about hobos who have bad breath
It ain't about sorrow and it ain't about hurt
It ain't about being poorer than dirt
And honey, sugar pie, this song ain't about drinking

Born under a barstool and raised by a pack of wild koalas, Painless Parker plays a mixed bag of country laments, sea shanties, murder ballads and classic rockers, filtered through a grimy, whiskey-stained punk lens. He's fluent in two languages, and can cuss in at least seventeen. He enjoys rabble-rousing, shindigging, booze drinking and merrymaking. ... more
