These two shots are for Derrick For rifle, not the handgun For coffee and cigarettes Give it back
You know, suicide isn't painless When you leave everyone in pain Two shots will never go down the same
This beating's for Jimmy For ultimate devotion For your mind of my own Bring out your dead
Sedated, flagellated You were the one most loved and hated Thanks for all that carpet and your songs
Oh, this patron's for Jason And this lager's for Andy And these doses are for bomber And this fix is for Bradley This ritalin's for Lumpy And this speedball's for friday This nitrous hit is for Lynn and best friend Dobbs
This bowl is for my mom For drinking more than I did For posting bail for me in New York
And in Hollywood that first time And that joint we smoked was the worst time 'Cause doing drugs with parents is just wrong
Oh, this patron's for Jason And this lager's for Andy And these doses are for bomber And this fix is for Bradley This song is for winning losers It's for lucky substance abusers The ones who left their black marks on us all
