A Night of Serious Drinking

Everybody’s happy. Everybody’s glad.
Everybody feels good. Nobody’s sad.

We’re all there Friday night, drinkin’.
Leroy’s got a poker hand that can’t be beat.
Freddy sees his o’ money shrinkin’.
He’s suspicious ol’ Leroy’s learned how to cheat.
It’s a night of serious drinkin’. A night of serious drinkin’.

Ron’s in the corner on his head, thinkin’,
Ponderin’ the fate of the civilized world.
Leroy’s lookin’ at the waitress, winkin’.
He wants to wake up in the mornin’ with that girl
After a night serious drinkin’. A night of serious drinkin’.

Everybody's happy. Everybody's glad.
Everybody feels good. Nobody's sad.

Our bodies are givin’ us a warnin’.
We’re gonna regret it in the mornin’.

Instrumental section

Now the neon lights're outside, blinkin’.
The sun is comin’ up over Choctaw Ridge.
Loose change in our pockets, jinglin’,
As we all stagger home over the bridge,
Out bodies drained and stinkin’,
Church bells in our heads, ringin’,
After a night of serious drinkin’.

Everybody’s happy. Everybody’s glad.
Everybody feels good. Nobody’s sad.
