When Work Is Over

Original and similar lyrics
When work is over he likes to hit the bars, And at the boozer we'll have another jar, Because drinking can help ease the strain Of his boring occupation, Dull conversation, Living by the book And the rules and regulations. Drinking helps us to forget what we are, We leave the office and walk straight to the bar. Don't stop to think, Have another drink! Drinking helps us to relax with the chaps, A double scotch and we forget where we're at. Don't stop to think Have another drink! When work is over he likes to hit the bars, Go down the boozer and have another jar, Because drinking can help ease the strain Of his boring occupation, Dull conversation, Living by the book And the rules and regulations. Boring occupations, Dull conversations, Living by the book And the rules and regulstions. Drinking helps us to forget what we are, We leave the office and walk straight to the bar, Don't stop to think, Have another drink.

Ha, This One Is About Alcohol Too

ATMOSPHERE "Sad Clown Bad Winter #11"
OK, I'ma have to see some I.D. from everybody here, except you huh So what's it gonna be? You all look like whiskey people to me [Verse 1] Never sick of listening to your problems Your boss threatened that you're gonna lose your job then You fought with your neighbour and he called the cops man Your wife left you and she took the dog, damn! Looks like you came to the right place Take a shot just to wash away the taste We don't know your name but everybody knows your mad face Save that seat for anyone that caught a bad case Every day is overcast, pains in the lower back Bones that you didn't even know you had Not sure but you think your best friend stole your lawn mower ...That would explain why he stopped coming over You ain't seen the doctor in a while Even longer for the dentist, I can tell by your smile Still making payments on a car That's sitting on a spare flat in your backyard Stacks of bills on a messy kitchen counter Ring around the blue-collar cause the hot water heater's down Here, put a couple of these down And sing the blues like they supposed to sound [Hook] Here comes a beer, catch all your tears Drink the remedy, forget about your problems Here comes a shot, lose all your thoughts Drink the remedy, forget about your problem This one's on me, fix you for free Drink the remedy, forget about everythang This one's on me, got what you need And take your medicine, you'll feel better friend {And then she said, "Did you put, did you put it in?} Wha-What? {Did you put it in yet?"} You know what? {And I was like, I was like...} You know, I'ma turn the TV on I'ma turn the TV on, I don't want to hear about this [Verse 2] Used to be you just get in the car and steer All alone, just you and them stars up there Find a highway outside of the gen-pop Turn up the music, go till the engine stops And that's life but with these guy's prices It's cheaper to just drink yourself to sleep, huh Dependency can be your best friend once you know That drugs and alcohol is all you've got that's dependable It's enough to make you wanna huff on paint again And lock you in the bathroom with the Jameson Nah man, come down here and make a friend If you do right, won't remember tonight We still open so have another cold one Until you don't recognise where you woke up And don't throw up, nah hold your liquor My tattoo gorilla be quick to eighty-six ya Now get lost in the river of smoke As it floats towards the ceiling that measures your growth Life is better with a poor memory But don't forget to leave a tip on the bar for the remedy [Hook] Ay buddy wake up, wake up Wake up, there's no sleeping at the bar man, get up It's time to settle out your tab You've had, you've had enough You've got, you've got to go home, wake up Yo, aiyyo, ay Stevie come over here man, check this guy He's still dazed? Hey buddy

A Drinking Song

Divine Comedy
Back at the house A bottle is found And opened in honour of those who have drowned, While we who have not are stricken with guilt And dutifully see that not one drop is spilt; We're drinking to life, We're drinking to death - We're drinking 'til none of our livers are left! We're wending our way down to the spirit store, We'll drink 'til we just can't drink anymore! Raise your glasses high, Drink the cellar dry! Well, bloody my nose And blacken my eye! If it ain't some young Turk in search of a fight - And Chanticleer's chest is sagging with pride, For honour has yet to be satisfied. Well, heaven be thanked We live in an age When no man need bother (Except on the stage) With 'Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori' - And definitely not tonight! I can still remember When I was just a kid - I was free to do what I wanted to, But I never, ever did... So now with years of discretion reached, May we not forget Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité For there's life in the old world yet! There'll always be an England (oh yes there will), An Ireland and a France (indubitably), A Liechtenstein and Finland (absolutely right, completely undeniable), And we have only one chance... Earnest young man with an unhealthy tan Puts a drink in my hand and says: I understand You're in search of the place To continue the chase Of the heavenly taste? I suggest in that case You all come with me To my place by the sea Where the glasses shall be overflowing with free Alcoholic delights - And free love if you like - For what point has this life If you can't realise you're dreams?! Oh, raise your glasses high, And drink the town dry! We'll drink beyond the boundaries of sense! We'll drink 'til we start to see lovely pink elephants Inside our heads, inside our beds - Inside the threads of our pyjama legs - So don't shoot til you see the reds of our eyes And an army of elephants marching behind! From the day I was born 'til the night I will die All my lovers will be pink and elephantine!

Forgive And Forget

AVALON "A Maze Of Grace"
Me and my shadow He goes wherever I go My darker side sometimes chases me home He makes me feel guilty For things I'm forgiven of Says I'm unworthy While you say I'm loved Lest I forget it You have said it I believe If I forget That you forgive Will that affect The way I live What I regret I won't believe I won't forget That you forgive me He's my distraction 'Cause he knows my passion is you His broken record plays 'round and 'round inside my head He'd keep my own two eyes Focused on pitiful me But I'll turn my heart in love Toward the world instead Lest I forget it I'm forgiven and I'm free I am living in the promise of a merciful place Where all my shame is gone I am living in the freedom of forgiveness and grace It's all I am counting on

Wasted Whiskey

RODNEY ATKINS "If You're Going Through Hell"
I had every intention of getting hammered here tonight I gave my truck keys to the bar keep Said "dave, don't you dare let me drive" In the middle of this bottle I drank my train of thought off track So I've gotta stop drinking or start rethinking my reason for throwing them back Cause it's just wasted whiskey trying to drink you off my mind There ain't enough bourbon behind this bar And I ain't got that kinda time So I'm gonna stand while I can and raise my glass Toast every time you kiss me Cause drinking to forget about you Is wasted whiskey So here's to new beginnings and to the memories And cheers to your mamma and daddy cause they were right about you and me And here's to milsap on the jukebox and to your new friends you've found And here's to our joint account, master card cause I'm buying the whole house a round [Repeat chorus] It's just wasted whiskey trying to drink you off my mind There aint enough bourbon behind this bar And I aint got that kinda time I'm gonna stand while I can and raise my glass Toast every single time you ever kissed me Cause drinking to forget about you Is wasted whiskey Drinking to forget about you That's just wasted whiskey
