Lyrics

Don't you get so tired
Of working hard man everyday x2
Why Not Be A Wino
and throw all your cares away

Why Not Be a Wino
And Live way down on skid row x2
You could drink wine all day
And throw your troubles out the door

I gotta get insurance on my car
Insurance on my wife
Insurance on my household
Insurance for my life

I say why not be a wino
Don't you know man don't you know
You could drink wine all day
And throw your troubles out the door

Solo

I gotta get insurance on my car
Insurance on my wife
Insurance on my household
Insurance for my life

I say why not be a wino
Don't you know man don't you know
You could drink wine all day
And throw your troubles out the door
