lyrics

Daddy quit drinkin' mama quit drivin
After they both got their DUI's
Guess they had to settle it between the two
Seemed the logical thing to do
So daddy quit drinkin' mama quit driving at all

Well daddy was out just a' drinking one night
And he shouldn't have been driving he was sewn up tight
But sometimes folks do just what they do
With his one headlight he went around the bend
And who was waiting but a police man
So the truck went to impound and daddy went to the can

Daddy quit drinkin' mama quit drivin
After they both got their DUI's
Guess they had to settle it between the two
Seemed the logical thing to do
So daddy quit drinkin' mama quit driving at all

Well I guess only three or four days had passed
And mama swore she wasn't goin' that fast
But the ticket said that she was doin' 92
She said the alcohol smell was from an appetizer
But that didn't fool no breathalyzer
So mama got a DUI goddammit daddy got one too

Daddy quit drinkin' mama quit drivin
After they both got their DUI's
Guess they had to settle it between the two
Seemed the logical thing to do
So daddy quit drinkin' mama quit driving at all

Well the years have flown by and us kids have grown
And daddy never liked mama drinking alone
So he fell off the wagon and I guess he seems happy that way
But mama drinks less now and daddy drinks more
Says he's got lots of lost time to make up for
Now they get drunk together, the truck's riding in the ol' driveway

Daddy quit drinkin' mama quit drivin
After they both got their DUI's
Guess they had to settle it between the two
Seemed the logical thing to do
So daddy quit drinkin' mama quit driving at all
So daddy quit drinkin' mama quit driving at all
