    The Bartender Song (Sittin' at a Bar) - Rehab

    Bar tender I really did it this time
    Broke my parole to have a good time
    When I got home it was 6 a.m.
    The door was locked so I kicked it in
    She was trippin' on the bills
    I think she was high on some pills
    She through my *stuff out into the yard
    Then she called me a bum and slapped me real hard
    And in my drunkin' stooper
    I did what I should of never done
    Now I'm sittin' here talking to you
    Drunk and on the run

    I'm sittin' at a bar on the inside
    Waitin' for my ride on the outside
    She broke my heart in the trailer park
    So I jacked the keys to her *father's car
    Crashed that piece of *shhh and then stepped away
    ...
    * words changed

    The More I Drink - Blake Shelton

    He was sittin' at the bar, sippin' on a regular Coke
    We were drinkin' and smokin' and makin' him the butt of our jokes
    We all said, "Man, what happened to you? Why can't you just have a few?"
    He said, "I would if I could, but it's probably best that I don't."

    [Chorus]
    Cause the more I drink, the more I drink
    Yeah, I'm the world's greatest lover and a dancin' machine
    I get loud, I get proud....and it gets worse
    Well if I have one, I'll have thirteen
    Naw, there ain't no in-between
    Cause, the more I drink, the more I drink.

    A couple of cold ones, and somebody hands me a shot.
    Hell, even buck-tooth and bow-legged women start lookin' hot
    And pretty soon I'm bummin' cigarettes and sweet talkin' some big brunette
    Yeah, once I get on a roll, ain't no tellin' where I'll stop

    [Chorus]

    Yep-yep
    Humm, that's what I'm talking about

    Man, if I have one, I'll have thirteen
    And they can't get me off the kareoke machine,
    The more I drink...the more I drink.
    Yeah, the more I drink, the more I drink, the more I drink.

    "Johnny Tarr" by Gaelic Storm

    Lemme tell you a little story
    About a man named Johnny Tarr
    He was a hard drinking son of a preacher
    Always at the bar

    Lager from the tap
    Or shots of Paddy from the shelf
    He could open his throttle
    And throw back a bottle
    As quick as the Devil himself, Johnny Tarr

    And the word got around
    That Johnny Tarr was no pretender
    From Claire to here they'd lock up the beer
    When Johnny went on a bender

    Down at Dickey Mack's
    The Rising Sun, or at the Swan
    He was drinking at seven, by ten to eleven
    Well, all the booze would be gone, Johnny Tarr

    And even if you saw it yourself, you wouldn't believe it
    But I wouldn't trust a person like me, if I were you
    Sure I wasn't there, I swear I have an alibi
    I heard it from a man who knows a fella who says it's true

    It was nine in the morning
    On a cold and rainy night
    Johnny rolled into the Castle Bar
    Looking to get tight

    He had money in his pocket
    He had whiskey in his eye
    He said, "Get up off your *****
    And set up the glasses
    I'm drinking this place dry"

    Now all the serious boozers
    They were soon broken hearted
    When Johnny finished off six
    And he was only getting started

    Guzzling down the pints
    Knockin' em back like candy
    He was lookin' alright to be drinkin' all night
    Then Nora brought out the brandy, Johnny Tarr

    And even if you saw it yourself, you wouldn't believe it
    But I wouldn't trust a person like me, if I were you
    Sure I wasn't there, I swear I have an alibi
    I heard it from a man who knows a fella who says it's true

    Johnny drank the whole damn bottle
    Had another pint or two
    When it made no impression
    He started a session with Murphy's Millennium Brew

    He was waiting for his pint
    When his face turned green
    Jesus, Johnny fell down
    After only fifteen

    And you could've heard a pin drop
    Then the crowd let out a roar
    It took five Cork women
    To lift Johnny off the floor

    The doctor looked him over
    And said, "Better call the hearse
    But it's not what you're thinkin'
    It wasn't the drinkin' this man died of thirst" Johnny Tarr

    And even if you saw it yourself, you wouldn't believe it
    But I wouldn't trust a person like me, if I were you
    Sure I wasn't there, I swear I have an alibi
    I heard it from a man who knows a fella who says it's true

    And even if you saw it yourself, you wouldn't believe it
    But I wouldn't trust a person like me, if I were you
    Sure I wasn't there, I swear I have an alibi
    I heard it from a man who knows a fella who says it's true

    It takes place outside of a bar - does that count? :thumbsup2

    The Drunk Scotsman

    Well a Scotsman clad in kilt left a bar on evening fair
    And one could tell by how we walked that he drunk more than his share
    He fumbled round until he could no longer keep his feet
    Then he stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street
    Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
    He stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street

    About that time two young and lovely girls just happen'd by
    And one says to the other with a twinkle in her eye
    See yon sleeping Scotsman so strong and handsome built
    I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt
    Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
    I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt

    They crept up on that sleeping Scotsman quiet as could be
    Lifted up his kilt about an inch so they could see
    And there behold, for them to see, beneath his Scottish skirt
    Was nothing more than God had graced him with upon his birth
    Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
    Was nothing more than God had graced him with upon his birth

    They marveled for a moment, then one said we must be gone
    Let's leave a present for our friend, before we move along
    As a gift they left a blue silk ribbon, tied into a bow
    Around the bonnie star, the Scots kilt did lift and show
    Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
    Around the bonnie star, the Scots kilt did lift and show

    Now the Scotsman woke to nature's call and stumbled towards a tree
    Behind a bush, he lift his kilt and gawks at what he sees
    And in a startled voice he says to what's before his eyes.
    O lad I don't know where you been but I see you won first prize
    Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
    O lad I don't know where you been but I see you won first prize!!

    "We Are Young" by fun.

    Give me a second, I
    I need to get my story straight
    My friends are in the bathroom
    Getting higher than the Empire State
    My lover she is waiting for me
    Just across the bar,
    My seat's been taken by some sunglasses
    Asking 'bout a scar
    I know I gave it to you months ago
    I know you're trying to forget
    But between the drinks and subtle things
    And the holes in my apologies
    You know I'm trying hard to take it back
    So if by the time the bar closes
    And you feel like falling down
    I'll carry you home

    Tonight,
    We are young
    So let's set the world on fire
    We can burn brighter
    Than the sun

    Tonight,
    We are young
    So let's set the world on fire
    We can burn brighter
    Than the sun

    Now I know that I'm not
    All that you got
    I guess that I,
    I just thought,
    Maybe we could find new ways to fall apart
    But our friends are back
    So let's raise the cup
    'Cause I found someone to carry me home

    Tonight,
    We are young
    So let's the set the world on fire
    We can burn brighter
    Than the sun

    Tonight,
    We are young
    So let's set the world on fire
    We can burn brighter
    Than the sun

    Carry me home tonight
    (La la la la la la)
    Just carry me home tonight
    (La la, la la la la la la)
    Carry me home tonight
    (La la la la la la)
    Just carry me home tonight
    (The world is on my side, )
    Carry me home tonight
    (I have no reason to run, )
    Just carry me home tonight
    (So will someone come and carry me home tonight?)
    The angels never arrived,
    But I can hear the choir
    So will someone come and carry me home

    Tonight,
    We are young
    So let's set the world on fire
    We can burn brighter
    Than the sun

    Tonight,
    We are young
    So let's set the world on fire
    We can burn brighter
    Than the sun

    So if by the time the bar closes
    And you feel like falling down
    I'll carry you home,
    Tonight.

    The Pub With No Beer- The Dubliners


    It's lonesome away from your kindred and all, By the campfire at night where the wild dingos call, But there's nothing so lonesome, so dull or so drear, Than to stand in the bar of a pub with no beer.

    Now the publican's anxious for the quota to come, There's a faraway look on the face of the bum, The maid's gone all cranky and the cook's acting queer, What a terrible place is a pub with no beer.

    The stockman rides up with his dry, dusty throat, He breasts up to the bar, pulls a wad from his coat, But the smile on his face quickly turns to a sneer, When the barman says suddenly: "The pub's got no beer!"

    There's a dog on the veranda, for his master he waits, But the boss is inside, drinking wine with his mates, He hurries for cover and he cringes in fear. It's no place for a dog, round a pub with no beer.

    Old Billy, the blacksmith, for the first time in his life, Has gone home cold sober to his darling wife, He walks in the kitchen; she says: "You're early, me dear" Then he breaks down and he tells her , that the pub's got no beer.

    Oh, it's lonesome away from your kindred and all, By the campfire at night where the wild dingos call, But there's nothing so lonesome, so dull or so drear, Than to stand in the bar of a pub with no beer.

    Escape (The Pina Colada Song) by Rupert Holmes

    I was tired of my lady, we'd been together too long.
    Like a worn-out recording, of a favorite song.
    So while she lay there sleeping, I read the paper in bed.
    And in the personals column, there was this letter I read:

    "If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
    If you're not into yoga, if you have half-a-brain.
    If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape.
    I'm the lady you've looked for, write to me, and escape."

    I didn't think about my lady, I know that sounds kind of mean.
    But me and my old lady, had fallen into the same old dull routine.
    So I wrote to the paper, took out a personal ad.
    And though I'm nobody's poet, I thought it wasn't half-bad.

    "Yes, I like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
    I'm not much into health food, I am into champagne.
    I've got to meet you by tomorrow noon, and cut through all this red tape.
    At a bar called O'Malley's, where we'll plan our escape."

    So I waited with high hopes, then she walked in the place.
    I knew her smile in an instant, I knew the curve of her face.
    It was my own lovely lady, and she said, "Oh, it's you."
    And we laughed for a moment, and I said, "I never knew"..

    "That you liked Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
    And the feel of the ocean, and the taste of champagne.
    If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape.
    You're the love that I've looked for, come with me, and escape."

    "If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
    If you're not into yoga, if you have half-a-brain.
    If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape.
    You're the love that I've looked for, come with me, and escape."
