Fancy coming for a beer?
Not for me, I’ve got to run
Come and have a swift one here!
Oh, all right, but just the one.
Thank you – could I have a half?
You know Matt and Loz and Suzie?
We’re all having a good laugh!
Soon I’m starting to feel woozy.
They are such a jolly crowd
And the repartee’s so witty
Perhaps another drink’s allowed?
Leaving now would be a pity.
It’s my turn to buy a round.
Five pints and a Gin and It
Have you change for twenty pounds?
Suzie’s looking pretty fit.
God, this lager’s really strong
And the glasses have got bigger
Have you lived around here long?
You have such a lovely figure.
Can it be my round again?
Now the room has started spinning
Do you fancy married men?
Something big is just beginning.
Have I said your eyes are blue?
Who’s bought me another litre?
Someone on the phone for you
Think she said her name was Rita.
Hello darling – yes, it’s me
You’ve just cooked a lovely pasta?
Just another glass or three
Helping me to get home faster.
No, I’m certainly not squiffy!
What d’you mean, I’m sounding boozy?
I’ll be home in half a jiffy -
And I want you to meet Suzie!
