Joe Jackson

Joe Jackson (born David Ian Jackson, 11 August 1954) is an English musician and singer-songwriter now living in Berlin, whose five Grammy Award nominations span from 1979 to 2001. He is probably best known for the 1979 hit song and first single "Is She Really Going Out with Him?", which still gets extensive US FM radio airplay; for his 1982 hit, "Steppin' Out"; and for his 1984 success with "You Can't Get What You Want (Till You Know What You Want)". He was popular for his pop/rock and New Wave music early on before moving to more eclectic, though less commercially successful, pop/jazz/classical hybrids. more »

What's the use of getting sober 
When you're gonna get drunk again
Oh Sam done something fine 
When he bought that good whiskey, beer and wine 
I love my whiskey and I love my gin 
Every time you see me I'm in my sin 
So what's the use of getting sober
When you're gonna get drunk again 
DV:
I went out last night about half past one 
Thought I'd whoop it up a little and have some fun
I got me a half pint about half past two 
Mmm, mmm, the way I was feeling you know what I want to do 
Got me a pint about half past four 
Felt so good, went out and got me some more 
Got me a quart about half past five 
Boy, that was so nice didn't know if I was dead or alive 
So what's the use of getting sober If you're gonna get drunk again 
Oh Sam done something fine 
When he bought that good whiskey, beer and wine 
I love my whiskey and I love my gin 
Every time you see me I'm in my sin 
So what's the use of getting sober 
When you're gonna get drunk again 
Well I've been thinking 
But I keep drinking 
I guess I'm 'bout lose my mind
