Oh you fool
You drunken thing
Sprouting this
and that

Walking like a
deranged Spiderman
Falling here, there
and everywhere

You drunk, you drunk,
you silly auld fool
Resounds over the air
and from the bar

Making the same
old silly mistakes
Week and and
week out

Best intentions
always laid
But they become a
distance memory

You drunk, you drunk,
you silly auld fool
Resounds over the air
and from the bar

A life lived with
many regrets
But you can’t help
yourself

Excuses always made
to others
No-one but yourself
to blame

You drunk, you drunk,
you silly auld fool
Resounds over the air
and from the bar
