Cheaters and liars,

they got me again,

Cheaters and liars,

that's why this bottle's my friend.

 

Well at least it don't cheat,

at least it don't lie,

an' it helps me forget

and it lets me get by.

 

This bottle stands by me,

this bottle's true blue,

stayed with me in bad times,

it can always pull me through.

 

Oh at least it won't leave me

for my so-called best friend,

an' spend all my money,

and break my heart again.

 

This bottle don't love me,

oh but I don't care,

whenever I need it,

it's always right there.

 

An' it never worries

if I'm rich or I'm poor,

an' when it's empty

I'll just get me some more.

 

Cheaters and liars,

well I've known my share,

pretendin they need you.

pretendin they care.

 

But when it's all over,

it's the same thing every time,

those cheaters and liars

they'll be laughin' while you're cryin'.

 

Those cheaters and liars,

they'll +get you to trust,

then they'll stab you in the back

an' leave you in the dust.

 

Cheaters and liars,

they got me again,

Cheaters and liars,

that's why this bottle's my friend.

You should try a typical 3chord blues version of this 😉

I can see why JAPOV might think of a classic blues for this, given the theme and the lyrics. It also might allow for a more expressive delivery. I think it works fine as it is. Two minor suggestions for the lyrics. 

Replacing "Oh at least it won't leave me" with "Or at least it won't leave me," would tie it more closely to the preceding verse in a more conversational style. 

Changing "it's the same thing every time" to "it's the same every time" would make that line easier to sing without rushing.

I may or may not be an enigma
