The Lyrics

"One over the eight" is an olde English term for being drunk...
I'm over the eight I am
Drunk as a skunk I am, I am
I been drinking at the bar next door
Had one beer then maybe seven more
Now everything's looking bleary
I can't even find the bloody can (Whezza can?)
I'm on my eighth pint now, I'm wobbly (Wobbly)
One over the eight I am

Second verse same in reverse

Am I eight the over I'm
Am I am I skunk a as drunk
Door next bar the at drinking been I
More seven maybe then beer one had
Bleary looking everything's now
Can bloody the find even can't I
Wobbly I'm now pint eighth my on I'm
Am I eight the over one

(Very wobbly instrumental)

I'm eiver the oght I am
Skunk as a drunk I am, I am
I dreen binking at the nar dext boor
Had bun we'er then maybe meven sore
Ow neverything's booking leary
I can't even find the coody blan
I'm on pie eighth mint wow, I'm nobbly
None over the weight I am

Funny thing is, Royce, that I've sung it out loud - and I sounded completely drunk without even touching a drop - the second verse is a real bugger to sing, too

His name is Phil Alexander, and he can lick any bloke in the house! Note to Chucky: That is NOT a reference to perversion, it's just something drunks tend to say.
