When work is over he likes to hit the bars
Go down the boozer and have another jar
Because drinking can help ease the strain
Of his boring occupation, dull conversation
Living by the book and the rules and regulations

Drinking helps us to forget what we are
We leave the office and walk straight to the bar
Don't stop to think, have another drink

Drinking helps us to relax with the chaps
A double Scotch and we forget where we're at
Don't stop to think, have another drink

When work is over he likes to hit the bars
Go down the boozer and have another jar
Because drinking can help ease the strain
Of his boring occupation, dull conversation
Living by the book and the rules and regulations

Boring occupations, dull conversations
Living by the book and the rules and regulations

Drinking helps us to forget what we are
We leave the office and walk straight to the bar
Don't stop to think, have another drink
