Sailor – One Drink Too Many lyrics

Well
The table is set
The candles are lit
And there's the knock on the door.
Boy! She's looking pretty
All dressed up

Now who could have wished for more.
Yes
We wined anc! Dined and all was fine

Knowing that she was game

But' then I went and really spoiled it all
By filling up my glass again.
(For) one drink too many took the smile right off of her face
One lousy drink too many took the girl right out of my place
Well
I tried to talk her out of going home
But instead I fell flat on the floor

And all I remember ist a great big bang

I guess she must have slammed the door.
Well a couple of days and a hangover later

She gave me one more chance.
But only if I took her to "CHEZ MAXIM"
For a fancy dinner and dance.
So we came to seek
Cheek to cheek

That moment we'd known before.
But then I went and did it all again
By filling up my glass once more.

(For) one drink too many took the smile right off of her face.
One lousy drink too many took the girl right out of that place.
Well
I tried to talk her out of going home
But instead I fell flat on the floor.
And all I remember ist a 'cha-cha-cha'
With the bouncers at the door.

Yes
We came to seek
Cheek to cheek
That moment we'd known before.
But then I went and did it all again
By filling up my glass once more.

(For) one drink too many took the smile right off of her face.
One lousy drink too many took the girl right out of that place.
Yes
I tried to talk her out of going home
But instead I fell flat on the floor.
I guess I need to work it out again like keeping myself ashore.
