Release information
Release Date: 1994
length: 3:23

It was a Monday night when I went out with the boys
It was free drinks for all, you could only smell the joys
I think I went a little too far I ended up on the floor
But you know I'll be back in the morn'

Well, someone drove me home
But I don't know who they were
They took me to a hospital, I said what's this bloody bar
They said my head was bleeding and I'd gone too bloody far
But you know I'll be back in the morn'

Clear the way, clear the way
Paddy's going out again today
Clear the way, clear the way
Paddy's going drinking in the U.S.A

Well the next thing you know I was lying on the ground
I drank some more whiskey, you know I was feeling sound
I dreamt I met MacGowan and he bought me another round
And the two of us went drinkin' 'til the morning


Well all my cash is gone and my guts are getting sore
I can no longer spend my evenings laying on Wally's floor
And if there's a bastard out there
Who will lend us another score
Then the two of us will go out drinkin' 'til the morning
