lyrics

If I can get my act together
If you can get your act together
If I can get my act together
If we can get our acts together

My friends Jen and Matt have a couple of cats
And 60 days sober as a matter of fact
And they just signed a lease on a five-bedroom house in Baltimore
Matt's folks used to beat on him every day
And Matt said "I'm never ever gonna be that way"
And they just signed a lease on a five bedroom house in Baltimore
And if we get our acts together
They said that we can have the whole third floor

My friends Jen and Weez had a couple of keys
To drive up to Atlanta from New Orleans
And they said I could ride along and pitch in on the driving
The cops in Alabama took one look at me
And they knew right away that I was the weak link
And it only took them about an hour and a half to break me

I've never told that story to anybody

Jen did a year but it was only in county
And I have no idea what happened to Weez
I picked Jen up on the day she got out
And she was just as high as the day she went in
I dropped her in Ohio at some weird house
And her and Matt met the very same night
And one week later they checked into a clinic together

They just signed a lease on a five bedroom house in Baltimore
And if we get our acts together
They said that we can have the whole third floor
