your opinion, song "Pretty Good At Drinkin' Beer"

what kills me, is most guys I know are hard core. they can do, will do, over achieve. GIT SUM! is their motto.

Even JWBM is a monumental overachiever (ever seen her boat?)

i guess this song talks about being a useless peice of crap (like a katrina victim) like it is a good thing.

i know a guy matches this song perfect: married the purtiest girl in town, and beats her up all time. gave her a tumor/concussion deal, she had to cut her hair short because it was too heavy when she washed it, and gave her migraines. he got on disability, and he's beat her enough she's on disability now.

he's JUST LIKE what this song describes: useless, except for....drinking beer.

BILLY CURRINGTON LYRICS:

"Pretty Good At Drinkin' Beer"



what happened to America?

"Country Boy Can Survive"
[Originally sung by Hank Williams Jr.]

I mostly resemble the line, I ain't cutout to climb highline poles. And I used to be good at drinking beer not so much anymore.

I get really tired of people celebrating stupidity, being proud of being stupid or lazy. A cute song about it just isn't that cute.

"Country Boy Can Survive" is a great song. Whole different story



Here's a deep thinker

I don't care for Billy Currington's song "Perty good at drinking beer" But I would be willing to listen to it 24/4 if I would never have to Kenny Chesney's "The Boys of Fall" again!!

I think your confusing Billy Curringtons song with Toby Kieths video of "trailerpark". Either song is simply a mockery of a situation not meant to support stupidity or laziness.

LOVE Country Boy will Survive by Hank Jr and Down in the Boondocks by little town?bro/sis band....

overachiever here, and we can survive *just fine*LOL. heheh Miss you John/SMChief/ Granpa!!

I do like the singer's laid back style along the lines of 70s Margaritaville Jimmy Buffet, but no story in it. just 'hi, got beer?' but it's just that, a catchy ditty.

yeah. the same 'Katrina city mentality' gets me too- Out in the Eastern border of LA, my cajun friend told me of a community effort to repair the older folks places, move the families with little ones in safer or make their place safer before they even took to their own places. asked for nothing from the guberment.those are my kind of people.

this song? I think of a nice looking, not stupid white guy who wants me to do all the cooking,cleaning, fixing,working, everything- so he can look good at a party that I have to pay for and clean up after. what would any woman see in that?..........sounds like a politician.
