about

The house that Katie and I live in has a family plot in its backyard. Though we didn't actually do any of this (get drunk and write a song in the cemetery) I thought it would make for a fun song!

lyrics

We should get drunk
At the cemetery in our backyard
And write a song
But we'll probably forget the next morn

Something about this makes me miss the good ol' days
When we were young and drunk in backyards
Singing next to graves
When we didn't care for who we serenade

We should get drunk
After our ceremony on the back porch
And write a song
But all our guests would probably get bored

Cuz writing these lyrics always takes up so much time
And all these beers have made me forget how to think

Screw it.
Let's just go an have another drink!

Something about this makes me miss the good ol' days
When we were young and drunk in backyards
Singing next to graves
When we didn't care for who we serenade
