  • Bought a drink for you back on the night that I met you
    Pop some cheap champagne when the first ball dropped, mmh
    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 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 around with the boys when they heard I was solo, yeah
    A double shot and some coke in a solo cup
    Oh, ain't no 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 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 told you I can drink

    Now that it's over, did you think I'd be sober?
    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 and I don't got no time
    To sit around and wait for you to make up your mind
    I 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
    Whoa, I told you I could drink
    Oh, oh
