Lyrics

BRIDGE MIX © & p 2000 Barbara Kessler

You take things so seriously
Talk about such serious things
Haven't you noticed this prosperity and that tax break in your bracket
Tell the neighbors to bring the Bridge Mix
Start out with some Route 66 w
Whip up some Lipton California Dip
And make a racket

Chorus:
Lets get drunk and roll up the rug
Just like my mama did
When the laughter would keep us up
Just like when we were kids

It's incorrect politically
Leaves you bereft spiritually
It's high time now I think you'd agree to shed these inhibitions

Chorus:
And get drunk and roll up the rug
Just like my daddy did
When the laughter would keep us up
Just like when we were kids

Bridge:
Here is the church
Here is the steeple
Open the doors
We're all just Cheever people

You spend too much time in that car
Listen to too much NPR
Sidle up beside me at the bar have a good time
Have a good time baby
Let's get drunk and roll up the rug
Just like our parents did

Let the laughter keep us up
Just like when we were kids
