Twelve More Bars To Go (Drinking The Blues)                     W.Shorter/C.Foster

On the town tonight
He gets movin’
Life feels good to him
When he’s boozin’
Drowning sober thoughts
While he’s tipplin’

Out along the streets
He keeps cruisin’
There’s no end in sight
When he’s slurpin’
Got to have that taste
Ain’t no stoppin’

One step forwards
And two steps backwards
There’s no sense in view
When he’s drinkin’
Pulls the bottle back
And keeps sinkin’

On a final fix
His head swayin’
With his drooling lips
And mind strayin’
One more bar to go
He keeps sayin’
