My pockets are all empty there's thunder in my head
It's twenty past eleven and I should be out of bed
I should be on the site but I was out last night
I'm going to give up drinking for the hundredth thousandth time

Sometimes when I go boozing I never stop to think
It helps me put my cares away when I go on the drink
But when it comes next morning and you're lying in your bed
It feels like someone's put an atom bomb inside your head


And I get the Arthur Guinness Blues
I can't find my trousers nor my shoes
My pockets are all empty and I'm late for work again
Today I'll make a promise to give up drink again

I used to be a pioneer and I never touched a drop
But one day I took a sup and now I never stop
My wife she's like a dragon she never stops her naggin'
So it's off down to the local I'm no more on the wagon

Now some men like their lager and others like their scotch
But I like pints and pints of stout and I drink it quite a lot
You can keep your fancy wines and your fancy German beers
'Cos I like pints of porter 'til it comes out of my ears

Repeat chorus and end
