lyrics

One night, while crawling on Pike street
Met a girl who thought me a swell
The things we had tasted
Had made us quite wasted
And walking a straight line to hell
She scooted in close to me sweetly
As I fed her another bad line
Oh I didn't have to beg
With her hand on my leg
Well, she asked if that stiff drink was mine
No! It's just my flask in my pocket
That I like to share with my friends
It's just my flask in my pocket
And a means to enjoyable ends.

We ran from the pub in excitement
But I lost her in the crowd on the street
As loud as I was
Singing like a drunk does
I fell prey to a cop on the beat
He told me he needed to frisk me
In his search for some illegal greens
No hint of panache
This thick-necked mustache
Thought he grabbed a magnum in my jeans
No! It's just my flask in my pocket
That I like to share with my friends
It's just my flask in my pocket
And a means to enjoyable ends.

Now, when this old life is over,
And my flask and my liver are gone
I'll sit at the gates
subject to the fates
Who'll expect I'll admit all was wrong
Saint Peter will give me the stink-eye
When my funeral mourners all dance
Oh he'll ask and he'll frown
Looking me up and down
What's sticking out of my ethereal pants?
Oh! It's just my (stomp) in my pocket
That I like to share with my friends
It's just my (stomp) in my pocket
And a means to enjoyable ends.
Well! It's just my (stomp) in my pocket
That I like to share with my friends
It's just my (stomp) in my pocket
And a means to enjoyable ends!
