lyrics

I get drunk and I forget things
Sometimes I don’t remember my name
I get drunk and I forget things
I don’t know what I did last night
I get drunk and I forget things
Don’t know what I had for dinner, even if I had dinner
I get drunk and I forget things
What’s this song about anyway?

10pm there was a taxi, there was an Irish bar and a Brazilian bar, there was a guy I knew from school, we talked about New York and the films of Ernest Borgnine, someone took us to a club where he knew someone on the door, there were optics, the chairs were chrome, there was a woman with a lazy eye.

I get drunk and I forget things
Sometimes I don’t remember my name
I get drunk and I forget things
I don’t know what I did last night
I get drunk and I forget things
Don’t know what I had for dinner, even if I had dinner
I get drunk and I forget things
What’s this song about anyway?

I lost my coat, I lost my wallet containing all my cards and a picture of my daughter, lucky there was money in my pocket and I borrowed £10 from the guy I knew at school. There was a fight, it was nasty, I knew a guy involved and I should have intervened but I helped him out to the ambulance and I waited while they patched up his eye.

I get drunk and I forget things
Sometimes I don’t remember my name
I get drunk and I forget things
I don’t know what I did last night
I get drunk and I forget things
Don’t know what I had for dinner, even if I had dinner
I get drunk and I forget things
What’s this song about anyway?

Next thing I heard there was a party, we took another taxi and listened out until we heard the music and the shouting. The door was open, no one even asked. There was graffiti on the walls and there was hash cake and naked eco-warriors in body paint. My friend disappeared upstairs. I sat on the fire-escape and watched the sun rise.

I get drunk and I forget things
Sometimes I don’t remember my name
I get drunk and I forget things
I don’t know what I did last night
I get drunk and I forget things
Don’t know what I had for dinner, even if I had dinner
I get drunk and I forget things
What’s this song about anyway?
