about

Duality challenged Edric Haleen to write a song about any internal organ below the neck except the heart! (They went on to explicate that “the chosen organ must be the main focus and topic of the song.”)

lyrics

Drink! Drink! Drink! Drink!
Gather your buddies and head to the bar!
Drink! Drink! Drink! Drink!
Ev'ryone come as you are!

There's no cause to argue or bicker,
'Cause ev'ryone's happy and full of good cheer!
So go get a wine or some liquor!
Or, better yet? Go grab a beer!

Drink! Drink! Drink! Drink!
Spirits are flowing and spirits are high!
Come hang with the guys as we socialize!
And drink! Drink! Drink!

************************************

Drink!
Drink!
Drink!
Drink!
Let Nature's bounty wash over your tongue!
Drink!
Drink!
Drink!
Drink!
Drink while the night is still young!

There's beer from your favorite brewers!
There's bourbon, tequila, and scotch you can try!
There's SoCo, Jack Daniel's, and Dewar's,
And Smirnoff and Svedka and Skyy!

Drink!
Drink!
Drink!
Drink!
Pull out the stopper and don't stop us now!
There's still a whole wall full of alcohol!
So drink! Drink! Drink!

************************************

Drink!
Drink!
Drink!
Drink!
Drink 'til you vomit, then go back for more!
Drink!
Drink!
Drink!
Drink!
'Til you're passed-out on the floor!

But make sure that you're a survivor!
Remember how costly a car wreck can be!
So choose someone else as your driver,
And order your next one on me!

Drink! Drink! Drink! Drink!
Keep the rounds coming! Let's go 'round again!
Don't care if it's wine or it's turpentine!
Just drink! Drink! Drink!

Just drink!

Drink!

Just drink!

Yeah!!!

LIVER’S PART

Umm... Excuse me?
Hey -- down here? Uh...
Pardon me?
Just a word?
If I may?
Hey?
I’m suggesting you
Slow it down.
Just a bit.
Not so much!
Thanks!

You’ve been drinking a while now.
It’s been fun and all...
But I’m falling behind.
I can’t process this!

So how ‘bout if you
Take a break
For a while?
Have some food
Huh?
You don’t need to keep drinking!
Please?!?

Seriously! What’s a liver gotta do
To get your attention up there? Huh?!?

That’s enough!
You’re cut off!
Time to go!
Now!!!
Man, I’m tellin’ you...
What the heck?
Even more?!?
Come on, brain,
Help me out!

My last owner was nicer.
What a shame it was
When they put me in you.
You’re abusing me!

Gonna give me cirrhosis!
I’ll look just like the last one!
Did you see that thing?!?
It was horrible!
I don’t wanna end up like that!
Somebody help!!
I don’t deserve this!
Get me outta here!!
You bastard!!!

No! Oh, what a world!

(Incoherent sobs)
