The popular song of Doses and Mimosas by Cherub. If you don’t know the song properly, then here you go.

[Verse 1]

“Don’t get me started, love

I’ve had too much to drink

Had too much time to think

So leave me alone

Crying when you’re by yourself

‘Cause of what they think about you

Makes time go slow, slow, slow, yeah

Makes time go slow, slow, slow, slow

[Verse 2]

Something’s gotta give soon

Or I’m gonna lose it

Substance abusing

And never come down, down

Fall off the deep end

And forget my English

What’s the point of language

If you don’t say what you feel?

So, with that being said

[Chorus]

To all the bitch ass hoes that hate me the most

Oh yeah, I hate you too

To all the punk ass fucks that just want to talk shit

I hate you too

To all the high class ass that’s too hard to pass

Oh yeah, I hate you too

Doses and Mimosas

Champagne and cocaine

Help to get me through

[Verse 3]

Ten in the morning

And I’m skipping breakfast

And drinking a beverage (Ahh)

To ignore it all

Guess ignorance is bliss and

I’ve come to embrace it

It’s all overrated

Except drugs and alcohol

So, with that being said

[Chorus]

To all the bitch ass hoes that hate me the most

Oh yeah, I hate you too

To all the punk ass fucks that just want to talk shit

I hate you too

To all the high class ass that’s too hard to pass

Oh yeah, I hate you too

Doses and Mimosas

Champagne and cocaine

Help to get me through.”
