Three Cups of Rum

here’s another rainy cold saturday night
when all you need is your friends sitting ’round a warm fire
seventeen and just a little crush to hide
your insecurity is wider than the distance keepin you apart
while she’s sitting near the fire place
crackling flames and dark are painting on her face

3 cups of rum
it’s just begun
the game to find the courage
they’ll fill your throat and push the right words out
when everything seems slower then you’ll find out it’s just clearer
so spit your feelings out before your last chance train will leave

time goes by, something’s changed but not your mind
the local news says ” firemen save a car bogged down with 2 lovers inside”
nothing strange but who was that guy?
He went across the muddy roads with that girl but she was not his love and now
can you find the way to tell her?
can you come through all of this without the help of

3 cups of rum
it’s just begun
the game to find the courage
they’ll fill your throat and push the right words out
when everything seems slower then you’ll find out it’s just clearer
so spit your feelings out before your last chance train will leave

3 cups for you, when your Monday ‘s not colored but blue
get it wet with one filled glass plus two
quench the thirst of a flower if want to see it bloom
growing older there will come a day
when your grandkids will ask you to play
but before then you’ll have to fill all your empty tank again
