Just One Drink

 
Who don't remember
Pa telling Ma
"I'm going out to meet some friends
down at the local bar"
She'd say "No, no, no, no, baby
don't go drinking out there all night long!"
He'd say "Don't worry, honey
I'll just have one and then I'll come on home"

Just one drink - there ain't no such thing!
Just one drink - there ain't no such thing!
Just one drink - there ain't no such thing!
There ain't no such thing as just one drink!

I can't remember
all the times I've agreed to just one
You can't call it a nightcap
when you drink it in the morning sun
So I'm taking time out to dry out
I think about an hour will do
'Cause that's about the time my friends come around, saying
"Let me buy just one for you!"

Just one drink - there ain't no such thing!
Just one drink - there ain't no such thing!
Just one drink - there ain't no such thing!
There ain't no such thing as just one drink!

Just one drink, baby
That's all you ever drove me to
That same one, baby
I'll be drinking ten years after you

Now who's ever heard of just one drink?
Just one, not two.
Who over there will get off of their chair
and tell me just one will do
Ain't nobody heard of just one drink
but they ask for it every time
Then it's two, three, infinity
It's just one drink that multiplies

Just one drink - there ain't no such thing!
Just one drink - there ain't no such thing!
Just one drink - there ain't no such thing!
There ain't no such thing as just one drink!
