Slingin' Beer And Callin' The Cops (explicit version)
The screen door's broken and so is my heart
You've gone screamin' and the car won't start
I wanta leave and take the kids with me
But you won't let us go, so I'll just be, yeah

(Yeah) Slingin' beer and callin' the cops
Gettin' on TV wearin' my flipflops
We don't need no relationship doc
Just leave us alone; this has gone over the top

Now fightin' in the yard; lots of shovin' around
Holdin' my own 'til you pushed me to the ground
Here come the cops, and they're just in time
I was headin' for the place I keep my millimeter nine, yeah



Now six packs and you aren't a good mix
By the time you were through, there was nothing to fix
Now you gotta know we're through with your kicks
So get on down the road, man; hit the bricks, yeah


We've been through this way too many times
It's time for you to go; leave it all behind
I always let you off, but this time, no pass
On your way out, don't let the door hit you in the aaa-aaa, yeah

Repeat CHORUS (2x)

Just leave us alone; we'll be gone when you get out

Short Song Description:
The drinking and domestic violence has gone way too far, so she's leavin.'
Long Song Description:
This is the latest episode where there is a fight between these spouses involving alcohol and escalating to domestic violence. She gets the kids to leave; he tries to stop her, resulting in "slingin' beer and callin' the cops."
Story Behind the Song:
I was in a conversation with two women. One was explaining that she and her husband had had a really bad argument but that they sat down at either end of the kitchen table and worked it out. The other woman said: "Hell, if that was me and my husband, we'd be slingin' beer and callin' the cops." Needless to say, I jotted down that line.
