  • I used to come home late and not a minute too soon
    Barking like a dog, howling at the moon
    You'd be mad as an ol' red hen, up all night wonderin' where I been
    I'd fall down and say come help me honey
    You laughed out loud, I guess you thought it was funny
    I sobered up, and I got to thinkin'
    Girl you ain't much fun since I quit drinkin'

    Now I'm paintin' the house and I'm mendin' the fence
    I guess I gone out and lost all my good sense
    Too much work is hard for your health
    I could've died drinkin', now I'm killing myself
    Now I'm feedin' the dog, sackin' the trash
    It's honey do this, honey do that
    I sobered up, and I got to thinkin'
    Girl you ain't much fun since I quit drinkin'

    Now I'm fixin' the sink and I'm mowin' the grass
    You made me a list and I'm bustin' my, wheel
    All broke down, tailspin draggin'
    It's a tough ol' life up here on the wagon
    Now I'm feedin' the dog, sackin' the trash
    It's honey do this, honey do that
    I sobered up, and I got to thinkin'
    Girl you ain't much fun since I quit drinkin'
    Yeah, I sobered up, and I got to thinkin'
    Girl you ain't much fun since I quit drinkin' Writer/s: CARL REBER JR. GOFF, TOBY KEITH
