It was a Friday night, we were down at Paddy's Bar
Joe Hurley came up to me, he said how are you doing so far?
He said MacGowan's drinking down the street
So we jumped in a cab, because we couldn't stand on our feet
We went down to the grocery, there he was at the bar
Sitting with his back to us, he wasn't very far
Rory walked right up, said can I buy you a fucking drink?
The beautiful barmaid she said what do you boys think?
Can I buy you a drink, it's so good to see you
You know what man, I wouldn't want to be you
Excuse me there, beautiful senorita
The two things I hate, the Queen and Tequila
We woke in the morning, we had to play the Fleadh
Pud he forgot his smokes, it wasn't Erin Go Bragh
I went backstage, I couldn't even think
Christy Moore, Sinead O'Connor, somebody give me a drink
When we left New York, we were feeling fine
Warm all over man, it must have been the wine
So until the next time, this is what we say
Ramones and Shane MacGowan, rocks the USA
