Robyn Hitchcock – I Pray When I’m Drunk Lyrics


Well I pray when I’m drunk
I pray for guidance
To get me from the sewer where I am
Yeah, I don’t know who to
I pray to someone
To get me on my way and give a damn
Yeah, I pray when I’m drunk
Pray when I’m sober
I’m grateful for the man that I’ve become
Yeah, I swarm with the bees and I ooze with the mackerel
And I think about you every time I strum
Some things can change
Somethings you cannot change
All things are strange
Yeah I pray when I’m drunk
I feel the hammer
Of judgment as it smashes on my soul
Yeah I’m glad that I’m drunk
I feel more open to spiritual leanings that I hold
Yeah I’m glad when I’m drunk
Glad when I’m sober
I’m grateful for the hangover that’s gone
And I’m grateful for you
And all the pickings
From the carcass of the life that I came from
From the carcass of the life that I came from
