I don't think Jerry would've minded.

If my head did ring with that jolt of sunshine
                       [F]    [C]                            [G]
And my nerves were frayed like a clock unsprung,
                [D7]         [G]               [G7]          [C]
Could you hear my breath come through the mucus?
       [G]        [D]        [C]                 [G]
As I blew my nose, it sounded like a gun!

[G]    [D7]   [G]         [G7]            [C]
It's a hangover, my thoughts are broken.
            [F] [C]                [G]
Perhaps I'd better stay in bed,
      [D7]        [G]       [G7]           [C]
Well, I don't know, I don't give a damn.
[G]         [D]       [C]                  [G]      [Am]
It was a party, a really swingin' jam!

[Am]                     [D]      [D7]
Ripple flowed like water,
                  [G]                 [C]             [A7]          [D]   [D7]
Now there's many cookies tossed and chunks to blow.

Screw  off the  cap if your cup be  empty,
Your head feels full, and  it will be again,
Let it be known the nausea's a- mountin.'
That wine was  made by one sadistic  man!

Out on the road, I can't see the highway
Between my eyes there's a blur of  light.
And where I walk no one could follow,
That zigzag path is from my steps a lone.

Ripple flowed like water,
Now there's many cookies tossed and chunks to  blow.

Those who booze it  up must wallow,
And if  we  fall, we're drunk or stoned,
But you can stand, and you are still sober--
If you know the way, won't you take me home?

La da da da da
Da da da da da da .... etc.
