A friend of mine found an mp3 of a song called “Everclear”. It’s about the liquor. He thought that it was by Robert Earl Keene Jr., and it certainly sounds like him, and like his king of song. However, my brother’s friend knows everything about, and every song by, REK Jr., and he says it’s not an REK song.
Just to clarify the song, here are some of the lyrics that I remember:
“When I’m drinking everclear, I’m king of this whole world,
I’m bigger and badder than John Wayne, and cooler that Steve Earl…”
[I hope that’s not too much to violate any rules.]
Verse 1 is about trying to get a girl drunk, but she passes out.
Verse 2 is about spiking the watermelons at a Baptist picnic.
Verse 3 is about him getting drunk and waking up naked in some unknown place… " I hope that she was pretty, and I hope that she was kind, enough to leave my clothes someplace they’re easy to find."
Anybody know who sings this song? Or can at least confirm whether or not it’s an REK song?
