Lyrics

VERSE
There’s something about the way she moves
That makes me feel like a fool
For thinking I would have nothing to lose
Trying to be the coolest cool

VERSE
I want to walk right up and seize the day
But that’s not a thing I could do
Unless I had the perfect thing to say
And make all my dreams come true

PRE-CHORUS
But knowing just what to say will require a little help

CHORUS
Some people call it “liquid courage”
I call it “drinkin’ up the nerve”
That way, I don’t have to worry
Makes me know I’m ahead of the curve
So no need to be in such a hurry
I’ll just be drinkin’ up the nerve

VERSE
One drink down; still no speech
Another gone; can I now be clear?
Three down, it’s still beyond my reach
Maybe need a few bottles of beer

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
You know, on second thought
I’d better come back tomorrow

Repeat CHORUS

SOLO

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Yes, tonight I’m just gonna keep on
Drinkin’ up the nerve
