Godsmack - Whiskey Hangover

So what if I never wanna be sober?
So what if I wanna be numb all the time?
I can't justify why I'd wanna go slower
Taking my time just ain't my style, yeah

I walk dead or alive
I waste my time whenever I like
I'm feelin ok with my whiskey hangover

So what you cleaned your act up so far
So what if I'm pissing into the wind (again)?
Have you ever thought that I'm not who you are? (baby)
Cuz even when I lose I know how to win again and again
So sick of you preaching all the time
Just keep your shitty advice inside

Cuz I walk dead or alive
I waste my time whenever I like
I'm feelin ok with my whiskey hangover
Oh yeah yeah
Cuz I walk dead or alive
I waste my time whenever I like
I'm feelin ok with my whiskey hangover
Oh yeah
Oh yeah!
Lets go!

One sip ain't gunna do shit
On the 2nd sip I begin to admit
That the 3rd one down is what makes me feel alright
And number 4 I slam down to the floor
By 5 I'm ready to fight all night
An then 6, 7, 8 to make me break your face sometimes

Cuz I walk dead or alive
I waste my time whenever I like
I'm feelin ok with my whiskey hangover
Oh yeah yeah
Cuz I walk dead or alive
I waste my time whenever I like
I'm feelin ok with my whiskey hangover
With my whiskey hangover
With my whiskey hangover
With my whiskey hangover
With my whiskey hangover
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah...

"Whiskey Hangover" is a song by American heavy metal band Godsmack. Released as a promotional single in 2009, it marked the band's first in the almost two years since the release of "Good Times, Bad Times." The song became a live staple in Godsmack's shows during Crüe Fest 2 and was released in promotion of their appearance on the tour. "Whiskey Hangover" reached #1 on the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks. The writing process, according to Shannon Larkin, was collaborative, stating that all four members of the band wrote the song and Sully came up with the lyrics: "All four of us were in the room and we wrote that song in like 3 hours. But it took Sully weeks to come up with the lyrics, and he wasn’t even happy with it ‘cause we had to rush it, ‘cause we needed something for this Mötley Crüe tour. The 3 of us loved it, but Sully was kind of irritated with it ‘cause he knows it could have been better". Shannon Larkin described the single as a prime example of Godsmack original sound, stating that "Whiskey Hangover is good clue of what the band is going for, it's more simplistic than the last record - less bluesy, more heavy", and a "return to the original sound of the Godsmack and what made the band happen in the first place". 411Mania.com reviewer Mark Ingoldsby gave the song three stars out of five, stating that the single "is a return to the band's well-established sound, this time not veering far from their proven hard rock hit-making formula that was somewhat missing from their last and least-successful album. Powerful, driving guitars rock full blast during the track's intro and chorus, and then take the usual back seat as singer Sully Erna invokes his trademark Vedder-meets-Staley vocal stylings in the verses".
