lyrics

If I was a cigarette he’d roll me and smoke me
If I was a bottle of beer he’d drink me up
But as I am I’m just a girl and that aint good enough
At least the way he’s treated has gone and made me tough

If I was a shot of bourbon he wouldn’t walk past me
If I was a handle of gin well he wouldn’t ignore
All the ways I try to love him, though it makes me sore
Cause right now he’s walking over my heart like a board in the floor

Chorus:
If I was a fifth of whiskey, he’d spend the whole night with me
But he won’t even give me the time of day
If I could only drink enough to become what he loves best
I’d let my whole self melt away and he could have the rest

Well there aint enough left in these bottles here at home
so he courts the foaming beer glass at the bar down the road
If my name were whiskey, if my name were wine
Then he wouldn’t leave me and he’d have me all the time

If I was a cigarette he’d roll me and smoke me
If I was a bottle of beer he’d drink me up
But as I am I’m just a girl and that aint good enough
At least the way he’s treated has gone and made me tough

Chorus:
If I was a fifth of whiskey, he’d spend the whole night with me
But he won’t even give me the time of day
If I could only drink enough to become what he loves best
I’d let my whole self melt away and he could have the rest
