I'd Rather Have a Bottle in Front of Me (Than a Frontal Lobotomy)

This song is by Randy Hanzlick, M.D..

Jimmy and I were brothers
We went down different paths
Jimmy always listened to my mother
And me, I never like to take a bath

As we grew and tumbled through adulthood
The pressure caused emotional drain
So now I'm slowly dying in the bottle
And Jimmy has to live with half a brain

Yes, me, I've got a bottle in front of me
And Jimmy has a frontal lobotomy
Just different ways to kill the pain the same

But I'd rather have a bottle in front of me
Than have to have a frontal lobotomy
I might be drunk, but at least I'm not insane

Jimmy let his troubles drive him crazy
He never tried to drown it in a drink
I know that drinking makes my thinking hazy
But at least I still have brains enough to think

Jimmy's got a brain that isn't stable
He doesn't have the sense to say his name
I'm sorry that his doctor was unable
To remove the proper portion of his brain

Yes, me, I've got a bottle in front of me
And Jimmy has a frontal lobotomy
Just different ways to kill the pain the same

But I'd rather have a bottle in front of me
Than have to have a frontal lobotomy
I might be drunk, but at least I'm not insane

Funny how the world works
People can be real jerks
Some prefer the tension over booze

Either way it ends the same
Hard to beat the living game
Might as well enjoy it while you lose

When I need a drink I start to shiver
And Jimmy always viewed it with concern
But I'd rather have cirrhosis of the liver
Than an intellect that's second to a fern

I wonder if old Jimmy's gonna hear it
When I tell him that his logic wasn't sound
They'll dose him up on lots of evil spirits
When they take him to the psychiatric grounds

Yes, me, I've got a bottle in front of me
And Jimmy has a frontal lobotomy
Just different ways to kill the pain the same

But I'd rather have a bottle in front of me
Than have to have a frontal lobotomy
I might be drunk, but at least I'm not insane
I might be drunk, but at least I'm not insane!
