"Thirteen Steps Below"

Thirteen steps to the bottom floor...
so I took one and left twelve more!
I'm stand'n there think'n,  I'm gonna do fine...
When just about then I lost my wine!

So I skipped the next three, and that left nine!
Now I'm standing here try'n to get a grip...
when all at once both my feet slipped!
And I fell to the bottom, nine more steps below!

Now I'm lay'n in the hall with my sight impaired...
moan'n and groan'n 'cause I hurt everywhere!
And think'n to myself, I wish I'd just stayed upstairs...
so I crawled through the room and made it to my bed!

I was do'n alright till it popped in my head...
I had left my smokes upstairs in the other room!
Now I forgot and left the one I just lit..
But it's gonna burn up,.... 'cause I think I'll just quit!

Now I have a fool proof plan in mind...
If you wanna stop smok'n in a real short time!
Just drink ya some wine and try to go....
Thirteen Steps Below!
