  • Song Lyrics:
    Could've been the whiskey
    Might've been the gin
    Could've been the three or four six-packs,
    I don't know, but look at the mess I'm in
    My head's like a football
    I think I'm going to die
    Tell me, me oh, me oh my
    Wasn't that a party

    Someone took a grapefruit
    Wore it like a hat
    I saw someone under my kitchen table
    Talking to my old tom cat
    They were talking about hockey
    The cat was talking back
    Long about then everything went black
    Wasn't that a party

    I'm sure it's just my memory
    Playing tricks on me
    But I think I saw my buddy
    Cutting down my neighbor's tree

    Could've been the whiskey
    Might've been the gin
    Could've been the three or four six-packs,
    I don't know, but look at the mess I'm in
    My head's like a football
    I think I'm going to die
    Tell me, me oh, me oh my
    Wasn't that a party

    Billy, Joe and Tommy
    Well they went a little far
    They were sittin' in my back yard, blowing on a sireen
    From somebody's police car

    So you see, Your Honor
    It was all in fun
    That little bitty track meet down on Main street
    Was just to see if the cops could run
    Well, they run us in to see you
    In an alcoholic haze
    I sure can use those thirty days
    To recover from the party

    Could've been the whiskey
    Might've been the gin
    Could've been the three or four six-packs,
    I don't know, but look at the mess I'm in
    My head's like a football
    I think I'm going to die
    Tell me, me oh, me oh my
    Wasn't that a party

    Could've been the whiskey
    Might've been the gin
    Could've been the three or four six-packs,
    I don't know, but look at the mess I'm in
    My head's like a football
    I think I'm going to die
    Tell me, me oh, me oh my
    Wasn't that a party

    Wasn't that a party
    Wasn't that a party
    Wasn't that a party
    Wasn't that a party...
