The Lyrics

Everyone's allowed a stinker, right?
He nursed his drink, ooh, the whole damn night
He wasn't so sure how he was gonna pay
Want to stay...want to stay
He said with a frown, "My funds are low
It's a quarter past...I have to go
But I'll be back around"

The bartender poured, oh, he drank more
It's fifty cents a beer
At Happy Hour, the cheapest drinks
Oh, it's fifty cents, it's fifty cents a beer

And the next day, he wandered in
After five, he comes everyday
For a buck a draft
Always cold, worth the wait
He plays some foosball...hits the pool hall
Place is hopping, but he leaves the bar at eight
But he'll be back around

The bartender poured, oh, he drank more
It's fifty cents a beer
At Happy Hour, the cheapest drinks
Oh, it's fifty cents, it's fifty cents a beer...

An occasional happy hour is good for the soul.

(123) Sounds like Norm with his never-ending bar tab. DKTOS, but 5'd anyway.
Guy - March 06, 2005 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Your tab sir, comes to $5.55.

Thanks Adagio and Guy. (and SOTM is code for 123, right? =)

(123) Funny stuff, but DKTOS. I trust your pacing enough to give you 5s anyway.

(123) DKTOS, but clever title pun and seems to embody the spirit of Pearl Jam.

What Johnny said... 50c - that's like 25p, right?
