The social drinker
He always wears his hat to bed
Don’t ask him why he won’t remember that it’s on his head
He’s not a thinker
By ear is how he plays the game
He wanders by familiar face but no one knows his name
He’s not bad he’s just sad in his way
When he talks to himself at the end of the day

The social drinker
He never knows what day it is
He’s not concerned that half the thoughts he has aren’t even his
The day’s for sleeping
The morning’s for a nip or two
And then he’s earned an evening out at someone’s well to do
Dinner party or cozy soirée
He isn’t disconcerted he can’t hear the things that people say

The social drinker
Don’t ask him about days gone by
A memory deserves to drown before it makes him cry
You’ll never know him
He keeps it all beneath his hat
The social drinker gets a rosy vibe when he’s out to imbibe
The social drinker says I’ll drink to that
