GET ME TO THE PUB

I do not mind my lot in life
full time mother n' half time wife
but I'm plum worn, want these feet up
Give me a song, a place to sup
where tankards clank in harmony,
and I can find some company,
I'll replace this morning's grot
with small talk in a cozy spot,
The roof's been leaking all afternoon,
Truth, I'm sick of that ole tune..... so....
 
So, get me to the pub, love, get me to the pub,
My day's turned stale, I've a want for ale
'N a bit of grub,
Now, be a good bloke and grab me cloak
Before ya hear me wail
Ho, get me to the pub, Love, just get me to the pub.

The taxman collected the lint in my purse,
Our washer's broke, the cooker's worse,
The school called twice, what can I say,
It seems our brood skipped class today,
Then the youngest shaved the neighbour's cat
and the eldest said I've gotten fat,
Father Mike dropped by to give us heck,
It seems we bounced the offering cheque,
Oh, you think that's funny, well then here,
We were redeemed by your LAST beer... so....

So, get me to the pub, love, get me to the pub,
My day's turned stale, I've a want for ale
'N a bit of grub,
Now, be a good bloke and grab me cloak
Before ya hear me wail
Ho, get me to the pub, Love, just get me to the pub.

Oh, those pub chairs are soft and wide,
I'm treated there like a new bride,
Most will toast my health, share a smile,
'N I'll become myself, after a while,
Husband, you got home well after three
then tried to steal a kiss from me,
But I'll bed the stud behind the bar,
he loves who I am, knows who you are,
He listens well, then rocks me to sleep,
Love, I'm damn glad you're the barkeep...so

So, get me to the pub, love, get me to the pub,
My day's turned stale, I've a want for ale
'N a bit of grub,
Now, be a good bloke and grab me cloak
Before ya hear me wail
Ho, get me to the pub, Love, just get me to the pub.

Get me to the pub

    ohhh, ribauld and so sweetly clever.. i don;t think i can do this as i've only experienced this kind of scenes abroad, especially in prague... you captured the very essence of the moment.. more soon; am trying to get my bearings; so many changes on settings here that i did a new piece and got dizzy with some fresh apps here...i must have astral-traveled!... love to ya!..huggles! :)

    Dear Cyndi What a day to stop by. This is hilarious. I'd send to my daughter; however this is not a good day to do it. She's driving Timmy to soccer and overnighting with Grace's class at the aquarium (don't know why). love you and your sense of humor. Kathy
