We pride ourselves on our well-stocked shelves
Wine from Deneb and whiskey from Carr
Any world you can think of, we carry the drink of
We serve the universe at Hanrahan's Bar!

The bartender's Irish, Mike Flanagan by name
Killed a dozen men on a rimworld, they claim
The barmaid's a gentle, elegant lass
As long as you keep your hands on your glass!

Now, the Patrollers drop by every hour or two
Just to keep the place quiet and to belt down a few
If a fight breaks out, then they're always in
Unfortunately, they seldom win

Now the pride of Coe is the engineers' corps
They've been stationed here for a century or more
They make good money and they know how to spend
And if you've got troubles, there are no finer friends

Now, the combine whose men Michael Flanagan killed
Had sent up two hitmen to deliver their will
And when they tried to take him, engineers barred the way
And to everyone's surprise, the Patrol saved the day

"Wait!" cried the commander. "I'm not for your plan;
This here's a Patrol base, you can't take the man!
The combine may want him, but he's our personnel,
The Patrol owns this bar; you can all go to Hell!"

We pride ourselves on our well-stocked shelves
Wine from Deneb and whiskey from Carr
Any world you can think of, we carry the drink of
We serve the universe at Hanrahan's Bar!
