Belly Up

He was leavin' the bar headed out to the car
When somebody stepped on 'is fingers
So he screamed bloody hell but no one could tell
Cause it mixed right in with the singers

Singin' hey hey another day
Belly up to the bar
And shout it out loud to the fun lovin' crowd
'Tis the lager that's got me this far

Pour me another and one for me brothers
And one for the lad on the floor
Ya can't fall down when yur on the ground
So ya might as well have one more

Singin' hey hey another day
Belly up to the bar
And shout it out loud to the fun lovin' crowd
'Tis the lager that's got me this far

Now let me make clear yur stayin' right here
Till the sun welcomes in the morrow
With a mug o' stout we'll laugh and shout
And forget about all our sorrows

Singin' hey hey another day
Belly up to the bar
And shout it out loud to the fun lovin' crowd
'Tis the lager that got me this far

    Love that pub you've got there, Craig. Recalls occasional episodes from my youth. From your own too, I suspect. Congratulations.- Red
