This a song called slave

Ministers of religion have visited me many times to talk about it
They say to me
I gotta leave it
I gotta leave it
It’s a bad habit for a man
But when I try
To leave it
My friends keep telling me fools l’m fool
Now I’m a slave (Slave)
A slave (Slave)
I’m a slave
Just a liquor slave (Liquor slave)
I’m a slave (Slave)
A slave (Slave)
I’m a slave
Just a liquor slave (Liquor slave)
I have lost my dignity I had before
Trying to please everybody
Some say to me yo yo
I look better when I’m drunk
Some say no no no
I look bad you know
Sometimes I cry
Me alone I cry
My crying never helps me cause now
I am a slave (Slave)
A slave (Slave)
I’m a slave
Just a liquor slave (Liquor slave)
I am a slave (Slave)
A slave (Slave)
I’m a slave
In my own country (Liquor slave)
Every night when I’m coming back home
My wife gets worried cos she knows
She’s got double trouble coming home
Sometimes I cry
I cry
My crying never helps me
Slave (A slave)
I’m a slave
A liquor slave (Liquor slave)
I am a slave (Slave)
A prisoner (Slave)
I’m a slave
Just a liquor slave (Liquor slave)
