Sargasso Bar

This song is by Barry Andrews and appears on the album Town and Country (1979).

Couple in the corner
Now she's crying on his shoulder
Well they're a couple of Modern Lovers
Sort of Kevin and Isolde

She's embarrassed by his footwear
He's embarrassed by her hair
But he doesn't really care
He says it's murder staying emotionally aware

He's another Lost Soul
But he's only come here to die
And get high

In the sargasso bar, the sargasso bar, the sargasso bar
In the sargasso bar, the sargasso bar, the sargasso bar

Big John in the wooly
Football training in the evening
Well he got married married married
Now he only thinks of leaving

And he's surrounded by the blubber
Watch the terylene stretching
As he makes a point about his car
When you're on miles to the gallon

You know where you are
And he's here every night, he's such a regular guy
He gets high

In the sargasso bar, the sargasso bar, the sargasso bar
In the sargasso bar, the sargasso bar, the sargasso bar
We came in from the rain
Now we're surrounded by the Eels of Death

Everyone nervous and everybody couldn't care less
We raise our glasses in 2/4 time
We study the latecomers as they slither in beneath the door
About this time of the night

There's more and more and more and more
Well, give them ten minutes then they all go home to die
'Cause they're so high

In the sargasso bar, the sargasso bar, the sargasso bar
In the sargasso bar, the sargasso bar, the sargasso bar
In the sargasso bar, the sargasso bar, the sargasso bar
In the sargasso bar, the sargasso bar, the sargasso bar
In the sargasso bar, the sargasso bar, the sargasso bar
In the sargasso bar, the sargasso bar, the sargasso bar
