The world is drunk, take away the keys
The world is drunk he'll soon be on his knees,
He's picking lots of fights and he can't remember why
There's trouble in the parking lot somebody's gonna die
He's acting like a disrespectful punk
The world is drunk

The world is drunk and it's not a pleasant buzz
He's threatening whatever peace there was
He tasted it now he's going to drink the tavern dry
And when the keg is empty the fists are gonna fly
He even threw some punches at a monk
The world is drunk

He used to be so friendly we rarely had a spat
He was always green and leafy
When he stopped in for a chat
But we hit him up for loans and we never paid him back
How in the world is the world supposed to act?

The world is drunk he needs to sleep it off
Quick before he orders another quaff
He's getting in the car and he’s drinking gasoline
He's mortally disorderly he's acting really mean
He even locked the driver in the trunk
The world is drunk!!
