Lyrics

1. Have another drink, Make it a whisky this time,
Join another loner who's nearly lost his mind.
Have another drink - It won't do you any harm.

2. Have another drink, Why not try a gin?
Join another lover and share the mess he's in.
Have another drink - It may help to keep you warm.

Bridge. Three o'clock in the morning, The lights are all down low.
Mr.Barman, don't be a drag, Don't say we have to go.

3. Have another drink, It really is a shame,
Join another loser who couldn't play the game.
Have another drink - It won't do you any harm.

Bridge. Three o'clock in the morning, The lights are all down low.
Mr.Barman, don't be a drag, Don't say we have to go.

4. Have another drink, It really is a shame,
Join another loser who couldn't play the game.
Have another drink, And please feel free - Don't you see?
'Cos this round is all on me.
