Lyrics for Drunk on Election Night by Courtney Barnett :
I went to party with a girl in the city on election night
I was hoping that we’re going to make a move to the left
But we’re gonna make a swing to the right

I’m singing the blues
For a country
As we’re moving to another long night

1, 2
Gonna catch that plane and fly
Gonna sail on the next high tide
Just to get away from that
c*ck-sucking mother-f*cker
Darkening my mind

I stood in the corner throwing glances at the TV
Ripped the label off the bottle all night
Some sucker rode up in a Beemer trailing streamers
And I nearly got into a fight

I said You’re making a fool of the country
Holding hands with the Christian right
And I turned to my girl and I cried

Gonna catch that train and ride
Gonna sail on the next high tide
Just to get away from that
c*ck-sucking mother-f*cker
Playing on my mind
And darkening my time

All of a sudden I got something to say
I bury my head but it wouldn’t go away
Sat around waiting for a brighter day
But the bad stuff’s coming when the good do nothing
It’s true
So what we going to do
Gonna backpack to Peru
Gonna work for a time on a farm in Timbuktu
To get away from those
c*ck-sucking mother-f*ckers
Playing on my mind
To get away from those
c*ck-sucking mother-f*ckers
Darkening our time
