I got off work last Wednesday night
Wasn’t quite feeling alright
Went to the bar on 49th
Sat myself down and ordered up a pint

Hey you there with your coat and your tie
Let me on the train, let me ease on by
Been drinking since work, see the morning light
Won’t do it again till tomorrow night

You know the bartender was a friend of mine
He knew just what would make me feel fine
Gave me a Magic Hat #9
Laid down a twenty and he kindly declined


Two became three and three became four
All the barflies were stumbling out the door
“Last call boys, can’t drink anymore”
“Except you man, stay as long as you care”


Next thing I know, six o’clock came
Looked in the sky and it started to rain
Fell on my ass trying to get on the train
Door started to close, so I had to say
