Feeling down, and oh so blue Got another five oh two. Pleaded down to a reckless wet, To A.A. meetings the judge said get. Filled with irritability and discontent, I’ve got this card to prove I went. Just bad luck was what it was, And I will tell you why, because... Were not the cop from the Dunkins leaving He never would have seen me weaving. Really, I was driving home just fine, And I only blew a point oh nine! On myself this sentence I did bring, Now I’ve got to do this A.A. thing. Off to a meeting I now go, Sure hope that I see no one I know! A church! Oh no, not if I had my say, No way they’re going to make me pray! Just here to get the damn card signed, Hope I find someone tall to sit behind. Heard my story told, not once, but twice, And that guy Joe seemed very nice. Told me to call if what he has I seek. I hope to meet him there again next week!
