The Lyrics

Have any of you ever been in this position? ;D

I don't remember, so I can't believe.
Tell me the truth, and this time don't deceive.
What was I doing New Year's - New Year's Eve?
I had no gig, no place to play to play trombone.
Now my friends show me - pics on their cell phone
When I got smashed on New Year's - New Year's Eve.

Did I get up and table dance
Right after I had dropped my pants?
There's no denial. The vid's gone viral.
Now I grieve.
For what I've heard has thrown me for a loss.
Tell me I wasn't fon-dle-ing my boss.
At least she will remember - New Year's Eve!

(Instrumental break to bridge)

I don't know how I dodged the cops
After I drank two fifths of schnapps.
It's so dismaying. When were they saying
Time to leave?
Next time I'll just have three bottles of beer,
Then I will have no escapades to fear.
Nothing to post on Facebook - New Year's Eve!

I did WHAT in the reed player's saxophone??? ;D

Honestly? There are things far worse that have happened on New Year's Eve! Thank God I did some of those frealy things before camera phones were available and only had to fear an instant camera and B&W copy machine reprints ;-)

Apparently I danced on a table one New Year's Eve when very drunk... since is COMPLETELY out-of-character behaviour for me, I would've categorically refused to believe everyone who told me this - had one of them not been my husband, who doesn't usually lie about things like that. *shame.* Loved this parody though - lots of funny lines. A party-ful 555 :^)

I'm sure we've all got stories like this to tell, though they may be second-hand, and not just at NYE either. I'll spare you mine, but I won't spare the votes.

If I did this, it was only in a dream as I asleep by about 11:30 at home. Nicely told tale Ribber. I won't stop at a fifth - I'll give you three of the fives.
