Lyrics

D.U.I.
By
Winston Montgomery


D, DU, DUI
D, DU, DUI

Verse 1:
It's 2 am and the bars are all closing
The sky is black and the street lights glowing
No one around but drunks and cops
So you gotta watch out for sobriety stops

Verse 2:
Looks like I'm going home alone again
Not a new girl in the bar since 1910
Bartender asks, Can I call you a cab?
Are you crazy, man, tally up my tab.
Only 2 miles from home but I know I shouldn't drive
Cause I just can't afford another DUI

Verse 3:
There's a black and white that hangs near 15th St.
Tonight they're not the boys I want to meet
So I think I'm gonna take my secret route
But sometimes the cops can get mighty cute

Verse 4:
I rolled down my windows so I could breathe
Took a shortcut down an alley cross Folsom Street
Drove the wrong way on a one way block
Hung a huey in an empty parking lot
If I can make it to Ninth I can start to fly
Cause I just can't afford another DUI

Bridge
You know I don't want to hurt no one
I'm a good time boy, just out for fun
I sober up fast when I'm behind the wheel
Please don't take away my (beautiful) automobile
(No DUI)
Verse 5:
Then some lights started flashing in my rear view mirror
A siren came on and things got clearer
I pulled over but I wanted to run
A cop came to the window said, "We got you son".

Verse 6:
I spent 2 weeks in jail with Sheriff Mike
All the bad guys laughed and said, ride a bike.
The judge on the bench she made me nervous
10 thousand fine and community service
I hope it's true but I would only be guessing
That I have finally learned my lesson
