The Lyrics

As I woke up hungover from a night of drinkin'
I felt crap and awful and I staggered to my kitchen
I first switched on the kettle and found some filter paper
I stood there and I dithered o'er the Breville coffee maker

My head spins, wanna puke, gonna barf
I need some caffeine-o
I need some caffeine-o
There's coffee in the jar-o

I had to use the dunny and it wasn't very pretty
My guts were very runny and I caught it in my trolleys
I swore and I cried that never would I heave, me
But the revels of that last night were too much and I felt queasy


Feeling not so bleary, my guts no more in danger
Making' my morning coffee and some toast and jam for later
Thought 'bout eggs or maybe bacon, with a grilled tomato
I jumped up, fired up my cooker and I sautéed some potato


I was no longer wishin' to die nor was I scowlin'
And now my inner ear it felt more reassurin'
You see, I like drinkin' and payin' for my folly later
It's like I'm on a mission, and I never will abstain, yeah
