How To Play

Intro:  Em   D   Em   D
 
      Em
Like everybody else, I like a night on the town.
   C           Em
I love a bella vino when the sun goes down.
      D     A                             Em             Bm
But unfortunately, one thing has led to another (yes it has).
Em
I've struggled more than once to put the key in the door,
G       C          Em          C      A
Fallen flat on my face on the disco floor,
       D       A             D                 Em
But if I die, I'm gonna die laughing. (Now listen)
Em
I've sung and I've danced in the streets of Paree,
G   C
Discovered my trousers up an old oak tree,
      D           A
I've walked half naked through the hotel continental. (But you know what)
Em         A          Em
I'm glad I did what I did when I did it,
A                       Em
Make no mistake about that.
         A                                          Bm
And I'm glad I said what I said when I said it, Oh yeah.
            C                 G
It was the drink that made me do it.
   D                Em
I know sometimes I blew it.
            C                 G
It was the drink that made me do it.
       Bm
Every time, Every time.
 
Instrumental break:  Em   Bm   Em   Bm
 
                      Em
I've skipped a light fandango, and I've lost my socks.
C
Even spent the night in a telephone box.
      D                                     Em
I'm a sucker when I hear "one more for the road."
G    Em                                 D
I've woken up with women that I hardly knew,
C                     Em
Wine is the cause of silly tattoos.
D                                             Em
I've raised hell, where hell didn't need no raising.
         A                 Em
But I'm glad I did what I did when I did it,
A                      Em
Make no mistake about that.
         A                           Bm
And I'm glad I said what I said, Oh yeah.
            C                  G
It was the drink that made me do it.
     D               Em
Sometimes I guess I blew it.
            C                 G
It was the drink that made me do it.
       Bm
Every time.
 
Oh yeah
 
Break:  Em   A   Em   Bm   Em
 
Ahh yeah
 
G       Em
So, the moral of the story. Stick to tea and cakes.
       C                                                  A
If ya take to the drinking you're gonna make mistakes
D                             A                                Em
I wouldn't change a thing, if I could do it again. (No I wouldn't)
            C                  G
It was the drink that make me do it.
     D              Em
Sometimes I knew I blew it.
            C
It was the drink that made me do it.
        Bm         D      Em
Every time. Every time.
    D
Oh yeah
          Em
Blame the drink
