That was you upon the mountain
All alone and all surrounded
Walking on the ground you're breaking
Laughing at the life you're wasting
One, two, a jive won't do it
You do it on your left,
and you'll never get through it
Everything you'll have to see
Dinner isn't just one day

Good try, we don't like it
Good try, we won't take that ****
Oh, I can't win

Things in bars that people do
