Do you fancy a drink
Just the one
To clear your head
We won't be long
It's a beautiful day
To waste away
There's plenty of time
For another one

You know you shouldn't do it
But can't see no reason why
So blow your mind

Make mine a short
I'm getting there
But where there is
I couldn't care
There must be something
I haven't tried
Perhaps that bottle
Before my eyes

Through the haze
The sun goes down
It's getting late
Let's hit the town
Call some friends
To paint it red
Feed the animal
In your head

They throw you out
You hit the night
Go to a club
You feel alright
You get a pill
Take just half
Then take the rest of it
For a laugh

Across the floor
You think you see
The one in your drams
Your fantasy
But that last drink
Has made you blind
You need the bar
But it's hard to find

You know you shouldn't do it
But can't see no reason why
So blow your mind

There's a brand new game
You want to try
Called "lining them up"
It's the first to die
You think you've won
But it's time to leave
All back to yours
For a cup of tea

You know you shouldn't do it
But can't see no reason why
So blow your mind

When you find your keys
You all fall in
And spend an hour
In search of skins
When all seems lost
And looking grim
You find a bottle
Of christmas gin

You know you shouldn't do it
But can't see no reason why
So blow your mind

The rest is blank
And that's the worst
An empty head
For an empty purse
You had a laugh
Or so you think
But in the morning
You just stink

You know you shouldn't do it
But can't see no reason why
So blow your mind

So you fancy a drink
It's just the one
To clear your head
We won't be long

    Just one chance is all I ever wanted
    Just one time I'd like to win the game
    From now on I'll take the chance if I can have it
    Just one just one
