  • I can make anybody pretty
    I can make you believe any lie
    I can make you pick a fight
    With somebody twice
    Your size.

    Well I've been known to cause a few breakups
    And I've been known to cause a few births
    I can make you new friends
    Or get you fired from work.

    And since the day I left Milwaukee
    Lyncheburg Bourbon, France
    Been makin' the bars
    With lots of big money
    And helpin' white people dance
    I got you in trouble in high school
    And college now that was a ball
    You had some of the best times
    You'll never remember with me
    Alcohol, alcohol

    I got blamed at your wedding reception
    For your best man's embarrassing speech
    And also for those naked pictures of you at the beach
    I've influenced kings and world leaders
    I helped Hemingway write like he did
    And I`ll bet you a drink or two that I can make you
    Put that lampshade on your head

    And since the day I left Milwaukee
    Lyncheburg Bourbon, France
    Been makin' a fool out of folks
    Just like you
    And helpin' white people dance
    I am medicine and I am poison
    I can help you up or make you fall
    You had some of the best times
    You'll never remember with me
    Alcohol

    And since the day I left Milwaukee
    Lyncheburg Bourbon, France
    Been makin' the bars
    With lots of big money
    And helpin' white people dance
    I got you in trouble in high school
    And college now that was a ball
    You had some of the best times
    You'll never remember with me
    Alcohol, alcohol

  • Travis from Iowait's not a one-word chorus its chorus is as follows:

    And since the day I left Milwaukee
    Lynchburg Bordeaux, France
    Been making the bars
    With lots of big money
    And helping white people dance
    I got you in trouble in high school
    And college now that was a ball
    You had some of the best times
    You'll never remember with me
    Alcohol, alcohol


    if it was one word it'd be
