While it’s pretty obvious this song is about getting plastered, I like to think of it as more of an analogy for life in general. Kind of a “pursue your dreams, don’t wait ’til tomorrow,’ sorta thing. Granted, seeing this song in that view does require ignoring the lines that are very obviously about getting wasted, but hey – we (and by we, I mean humanity at large) are great at rationalizing. Plus, it’s a catchy song. What’s not to love?
