Bought a drink for you back on the night that I met you, mm
Pop some cheap champagne when the first ball dropped, mm
Couple shots when I first said, "I think that I love you", oh
And you musta had a couple when you said, "Get lost", yeah

Now that it's over, did you think I'd be sober?
It may sound harsh but I've always been this way

Told you I could drink, told you I'd be fine
Told you I would move on if you left me behind
'Cause you pushed me to the brink and I don't got no time
To sit around and wait for you to make up your mind
I'll drink you under the table, outta my head
Over the memories of you in my bed
And honestly, just what else did you think
When I told you I could drink?

Oh, yeah

Got a round with the boys when they heard I was solo, yeah
A double shot and some Coke in a solo cup
Oh, ain't a bar in this town that I found that I won't go
Well, you could take the high road but it don't hold up

Yeah, I told you I could drink, told you I'd be fine
I told you I would move on if you left me behind
'Cause you pushed me to the brink and I don't got no time
To sit around and wait for you to make up your mind
I'll drink you under the table, outta my head
Over the memories of you in my bed
And honestly, just what else did you think
When I told you I could drink?

Oh
I told you I could drink

Now that it's over (now that it's over), did you think I'd be sober? (Mm)
It may sound harsh but I've always been this way

I told you I could drink, I told you I'd be fine
I told you I would move on if you left me behind
'Cause you pushed me to the brink (oh oh) and I don't got no time
To sit around and wait for you to make up your mind
I'll drink you under the table, outta my head
Over the memories of you in my bed
And honestly, just what else did you think
When I told you I could drink?

I thought I told you I could drink
I thought I told you
When I told you I could drink (woo)
Whoa, I told you I could drink
Oh, oh
