Cheaper Than a Shrink

Album: Cold Beer Conversation (2015)
  • I was sittin' in a chair at the H&R Block
    Some bean-countin' pencil pusher runnin' up the clock
    Said, "I've tallied up your numbers for the end of the year
    And son, you've spent a small fortune on liquor and beer"

    I said, it's cheaper than a shrink
    You don't have to think
    You just pour and drink
    It's sixteen-fifty for a bottle of Jack
    No pouring out your heart to some high-dollar quack
    Just a flip of the wrist and you're gettin' it done
    And gettin' just as messed up and havin' a lot more fun

    And it's cheaper than a shrink
    You don't have to think
    You just pour and drink
    Aw, it's cheaper than a shrink

    Now me and her had this little problem between us
    Tryin' to bridge the gap between Mars and Venus
    She said, "Honey, I think we need to see a marital counselor"
    I said, "All we need to do is slam a case of twelve-ouncers"

    'Cause it's cheaper than a shrink
    You don't have to think
    You just pour and drink
    About eighteen bucks'll get you four six-packs
    No pouring out your heart to some high dollar quack
    Just a flip of the wrist and you're gettin' it done
    Gettin' just as messed up and havin' a lot more fun

    And it's cheaper than a shrink
    You don't have to think
    You just pour and drink
    Yeah, it's cheaper than a shrink

    If liquor prices soared as high as gasoline
    Then I'd a-quit drinkin' back when I was nineteen
    It's the oldest, most proven form of therapy
    The best thing about it far as I can see is that it's

    Cheaper than a shrink
    You don't have to think
    You just pour and drink
    And it's cheaper than a shrink

    Aw, you just pour and drink
    And it's a whole lot cheaper than some big-town, clock-hound, drag-you-down shrink Writer/s: BILL ANDERSON, BUDDY CANNON, JAMEY JOHNSON
