  • Alright, alright
    Alright, alright
    Alright, alright, it's a hell of a feeling though
    It's a hell of a feeling though
    Alright, alright, it's a hell of a feeling though
    It's a hell of a feeling though

    Who are these people?
    I just woke up in my underwear
    No liquor left on the shelf
    I should probably introduce myself
    You shoulda' seen what I wore
    I had a cane and a party hat
    I was the king of this hologram
    Where there's no such thing as getting out of hand
    Memories tend to just pop up
    Drunk pre-meds and some rubber gloves
    Five-thousand people with designer drugs
    Don't think I'll ever get enough (don't think I'll ever get enough)

    Champagne, cocaine, gasoline
    And most things in between
    I roam the city in a shopping cart
    A pack of camels and a smoke alarm

    This night is heating up
    Raise hell and turn it up
    Saying "If you go out you might pass out in a drain pipe"
    Oh yeah, don't threaten me with a good time

    It's a hell of a feeling though
    It's a hell of a feeling though
    Alright, alright
    It's a hell of a feeling though
    It's a hell of a feeling though

    What are these footprints?
    They don't look very human like
    Now I wish that I could find my clothes
    Bedsheets and a morning rose
    I wanna wake up
    Can't even tell if this is a dream
    How did we end up in my neighbors pool
    Upside down with a perfect view?
    Bar to bar at the speed of sound
    Fancy feet dancing through this town
    Lost my mind in a wedding gown
    Don't think I'll ever get it now
    (Don't think I'll ever get it now)

    Champagne, cocaine, gasoline
    And most things in between
    I roam the city in a shopping cart
    A pack of camels and a smoke alarm

    This night is heating up
    Raise hell and turn it up
    Saying "If you go out you might pass out in a drain pipe"
    Oh yeah, don't threaten me with a good time

    I'm a scholar and a gentleman
    And I usually don't fall when I try to stand
    I lost a bet to a guy in a Chiffon skirt
    But I make these high heels work
    I've told you time and time again
    I'm not as think as you drunk I am
    And we all fell down when the sun came up
    I think we've had enough

    Alright, alright, it's a hell of a feeling though
    It's a hell of a feeling though
    Alright, alright, it's a hell of a feeling though
    It's a hell of a feeling though

    Champagne, cocaine, gasoline
    And most things in between
    I roam the city in a shopping cart
    A pack of camels and a smoke alarm

    This night is heating up
    Raise hell and turn it up
    Saying "If you go out you might pass out in a drain pipe"
    Oh yeah, don't threaten me with a good time Writer/s: Amir Jerome Salem, Brendon Boyd Urie, Carl Henrik Gunnar Lehmann, Fred Schneider, Frederick William II Schneider, Jacob S. Sinclair, Jerker-Olov Hansson, Jonathan Rotem, Ricky Wilson, Teal Douville
