Drink And Drive
Joose Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Bad for business, good for me
I'll get mine eventually
Chase the train, catch a cold
I gotta get out before I'm too old (Go)

Get shots inside, then take a right
Well, if you drink and drive
Will you give it a try while we're still alive?
Well, if you drink and drive

Bad for business, good for me
I'll get mine, yeah
Chase the dream, catch a cold
Gotta get out, woo!

Get shots inside, then take a right
Well, if you drink and drive
Will you give it a try while we're still alive?
Well, if you drink and drive

Bad for business, good
I'll get mine
Chase the dream, catch a cold
Gotta get out soon, woo!

Get shots inside, then take a right
Well, if you drink and drive




Will you give it a try while we're still alive?
Well, if you drink and drive

Overall Meaning

The song "Drink and Drive" by Joose is a reflection of the reckless behavior of individuals who consume alcohol and still choose to drive. The character in the song portrays a self-centered outlook on life and refers to the act of drinking and driving as "bad for business, good for me." This line is suggesting that drinking and driving might not be in society's best interest but is advantageous to the singer who is more interested in his own well-being.


The repeated lyrics "Get shots inside, then take a right" insinuate that the character is drinking alcohol and then getting behind the wheel. The line "Will you give it a try while we're still alive?" pushes the listener to consider if they too will engage in this dangerous behavior.


The chorus acts as a warning, but the character is dismissive of the dangers of drinking and driving. It is concerning that the singer is more focused on chasing their dreams and getting out before they are too old, rather than the lives they might endanger on the road.


Overall, the lyrics of the song are cautionary, but the singer chooses to ignore the risks and drives under the influence of alcohol. This song highlights the need for responsible behavior when consuming alcohol and the terrible consequences of drunk driving.
