It used to be beer

It used to be beer – now it’s just cola,

a change that I made now that I’m olda.

Buy it in packs – just like the past,

prefer it that way – the longer they last.

Traded the buzz for something much more,

can end standing up – not drunk on the floor.

The fun that I had – be it truly for real?

’twas I “life of the party” or just a big heel?

Might rot out my teeth – raise my triglycerides,

not close to the benefits beer sure provides.

But do not wake up in stupor and fright,

and try to recall what happened last night.
