We were drinking like the irish
But we were drinking scotch
Bartender turned on a movie
Everybody turned to watch
And every single eye was gleaming
As he reached the final scene
Well, at least mine did
Here's lookin' at you, kid

It's a mad mission
Under difficult conditions
Not everybody makes it
To the loving cup
It's a mad mission
But I got the ambition
Mad, mad mission
Sign me up

I think I've seen the look before,yes,
It's kind of non-commital
It says come hither, baby, but then he's hard wood to whittle
It says it don't mean a thing, but still, somebody does
He'd like you to join the club that likes to say
There's no such thing as love and

It's a mad mission
Under difficult conditions
Not everybody makes it
To the loving cup
It's a mad mission
But I got the ambition
Mad, mad mission
Sign me up

Sometimes you find yourself
Flying low at night
Flying blind and looking for
Any sign of light
You're cold and scared, and all alone
You'd do anything just to make it home

It's a mad mission
Under difficult conditions
Not everybody makes it
To the loving cup
It's a mad mission
But I got the ambition
Mad, mad mission
Sign me up

Sign me up
