about

If you've ever sound up babysitting a drunk idiot at a party instead of getting to have a fun time yourself, you've got yourself a Larry.

lyrics

Thanks for inviting me, it’s sure nice to get out
I know I tend to hide, but deep inside I’m a social gadabout
This party’s happening, and I owe it all to you
But just when I start to chill I feel the spill of lager on my shoe
It’s Larry, what fun - he’s already wasted and the night has just begun

Oh, no - It happens every time
I turn from partygoer into grumpy chaperone
Oh, no - I’m pouring out my wine
Cause someone’s got to drive Larry home

I hear you saying “Jill, don’t worry ‘bout him now
He’s not your cross to bear, it isn’t fair, he’ll make it home somehow,”
But I can’t celebrate, watching him progress
Besides you realize that he resides a mile from my address
Oh Larry, all right - I guess you found your babysitter for the night

Oh, no - It happens every time
I turn from partygoer into grumpy chaperone
Oh, no - I’m pouring out my wine
Cause someone’s got to drive Larry home

It’s okay, everybody has a role they gotta play
This is my curse, as he goes from bad to worse
I can’t be the wild child, oh no! I gotta be the nurse!

And now it’s getting late, the cool kids have all gone
But of course Larry’s here, he’s pierced his ear, and thrown up
on the lawn
I got him in the car, and got some on my blouse
It’s time to say goodbye, see this is why I never leave the house
Don’t worry - I’m not far - tomorrow morning we’ll come back
to get his car

Oh, no - It happens every time
I turn from party-goer into grumpy chaperone
Oh, no - I’m pouring out my wine
Cause someone’s got to drive Larry home

Oh, no - I’ll never be the one
I can’t just have a good time, no I guess I
should have known
Oh, no - so much for having fun
Cause someone’s got to drive Larry home
