Unkle Adams – Put the Keys Down (Lyrics)
It was just like any other night that night
He was sitting back kickin’ it sippin’ some Bud Light
Stressed out from the week just tryna’ unwind
Only God knows why he decided to drive
To the liquor store but he’d done it before
Just a couple blocks north hang a left on 4th
But this time he made the turn and he failed to stop
And nailed a Grandpa using the cross walk
He slammed on the brakes stunned and started to shake
He opened the door blood stains splattered the paint
The man was in pain he looked him right in the face
But it was too late he was slippin’ away
And that moment of silence when he closed his eyelids
Was cut short by the sharp sound of the sirens
How could this happen lights flashing around him
Squeezing the man’s hand that’s how they found him
 
It’s not too late yet you better get the message
Before you end up dead are you ready for heaven?
All you gota’ do is put the key keys down
I can hear em’ scream now put the damn keys down! X2




Grandpa Grandma Joe and Alana
Mom Dad and Chad all packed the van up
And hit the open road they were headed for the cabin
Little did they know that that would never happen
Jason and Stacey were drunk out their faces
Headed in the opposite way on highway six
Smoking reefer sippin’ cans of brewskie’
Swerving speeding and acting goofy
Jay dropped his joint on the floor and looked down
Swerved out and hit the family’s van pow!
He came too in a hospital bed
With police all around and his rights were read
Jason was arrested the only survivor
The rest died from impact wreckage and fire
Eight lives lost from a stupid decision
Guilt ridden Jay now lives in a prison
 
It’s not too late yet you better get the message
Before you end up dead are you ready for heaven?
All you gota’ do is put the key keys down
I can hear em’ scream now put the damn keys down! X2
 
Next time your drunk and you pick up the keys
I hope you take a second to remember this beat
If you don’t and you drive and somebody does die
I warned you fair and square don’t be surprised
I know you think you’re tough on the liquor and stuff
But it’s too late when you wake up crippled and hunched
My friends stuck in a chair you can’t tell me it’s fair
He can’t even speak so his message I share
It’s a breath of fresh air to know some of you care
I’m clearin’ the air so take a good look in the mirror
Now ask yourself are you’re ready to stand up?
To anyone anywhere planning to drive drunk
All I can ask is that you follow this task
Before another mother has to cry holler and gasp
All because you had to suck a couple bottles back
And drive away now she’ll never get her daughter back
 
It’s not too late yet you better get the message
Before you end up dead are you ready for heaven?
All you gota’ do is put the key keys down
I can hear em’ scream now put the damn keys down! X2
