Lyrics

I went to a New Year's Eve party
Hosted by my good friends Marc and Tom
And I took my girlfriend Audrey
Cuz lately we had really been getting on.
It was a night like no other,
All the regulars were there,
And if I knew then what I didn't know then,
I could swear my baby had much longer hair.

Well I drink lots of beer
And the end is predictably clear
My nights end passed out curled up on the floor.
But my friends, they all say,
It didn't go down that way,
And the girl I was kissing at midnight ain't the same one as my date.
If I'd just passed out, I'd still have, my girlfriend now,
If I'd just passed out, I'd still have, my girlfriend now,
Now, now, now, now, now, now, now.

I was able to keep hold of my lenses,
Much to everyone's surprise,
But the one thing I never thought I'd lose tonight
Just hopped a cab and rode off in the night.
Audrey, my Audrey was a good one,
She was always nice to all my friends,
From the ones who drink a lot to the ones who smoke pot,
She was never judgmental or grim.

But when I drink lots of beer
The end is predictably clear
My nights end passed out curled up on the floor.
But my friends, they all say,
It didn't go down that way,
And the girl I was kissing at midnight ain't the same one as my date.
If I'd just passed out, I'd still have, my girlfriend now,
If I'd just passed out, I'd still have, my girlfriend now,
Now, now, now, now, now, now, now.

(repeat from "But when I drink .." and end)
