 Struggling with Alcohol? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

An icy wind blows through the door 
You feel like you've been here before 
You tremble and you start to sweat 
The symptoms of withdrawal 

Alcohol 
Why do you do it? 
Why do you keep beating me? 
You give some people a real good time 
But you cause some untold misery 

Heroin 
Why do you do it? 
I don't like what I've seen 
You promise someone a real good time 
And then you take them from their family 
You tremble and you start to sweat 
You don't want to withdraw 
And when your flesh begins to crawl 
You'd rather not be here at all 

Alcohol 
How do you do it? 
Please don't do it to me 
You give some people a real good time 
But you cause some untold misery 

Alcohol 
Why do you do it? 
You ain't gonna do it to me 
You give some people a real good time 
And you cause some untold misery
