I hated to call, I knew you wouldn't mind at all 
I know you know I'd do the same for you 
I'm not the kind that likes to drown my sorrow 
I may hate myself tomorrow 
Oh but


We need to get to where we can't think of her 
So tonight we're the designated drinkers 
Oh tonight, we're the designated drinkers
