This is a mean old world,
Baby to live in by yourself.
This is a mean old world,
Baby to live in by yourself.
Can't get the woman you love,
Cause you know she's lovin someone else.

Well I drink to keep from worryin
Baby and I smile to keep from cryin'.
Yes I drink to keep from worryin
And you know I smile to keep from cryin.
That's to keep the public from knowin
Just what I have on my mind.
