​Anotherdrinkingsong

This song is by Skyclad and appears on the album A Semblance Of Normality (2004).

Where they sit around
And get a round in while the getting's good
They'll make the most until the money's gone
They're coming out to celebrate
To sing and dance and to escape
A crazy world where everything seems wrong
Drinking to forget and to remember all the glory days
The days we stood apart and we stood strong

Though the beer befuddles sense
It can't provide them recompense
They settle for another drinking song

Where the busy man finds recreation
The idle man finds business
The melancholy man finds sanctuary
The stranger may have welcome
And still within these self-same walls
The citizen may find some courtesy
From rose and crown to cock and bull
All history is written there
To folklore, myth and legend we belong

Come, masons, plumbers, carpenters
Come cricketers and huntsmen
All join in with another drinking song

Well you can keep your long-hours culture
Your lusting for adventure
There's life aplenty down "The Tap 'n' Spile"
Forget your occupation down "The Salutation"
This tragicomedy will make you smile
From quaint barstool philosophy to subtle innuendo
It's funny how the tribes all get along

Curse abstinence and temperance
Come celebrate insouciance
And join us in another drinking song
