I'm a drunk and baby I'm a stoner An anti-social drinking on my owner Just a child wih an adult's body and face I'm a flake so please be very wary Unreliable drunk and really sweary Not the sort of man you could take home to meet your parents I ain't no saint, just a sinner, a waste of space yeah, I'm a disgrace I'm trying hard to be the man you want of me Polite and extrovert, funny and chatty But I don't think that I can keep it up for long Cos pretty soon I'm bound to start an argument About the food, your mother or the government Cos once I've had a drink I cannae hold my tongue I ain't no saint, just a sinner, a waste of space yeah, I'm a disgrace Every time I drank away my wages Apologised till I was blue in the face Embarrassed you in front of all the soccer moms But you always knew that I was different That made you want to be my girlfriend No much point in greeting about it now I ain't no saint, just a sinner, a waste of space yeah, I'm a disgrace

It's gonna be chaos, it's gonna get rough The night that they let us back in the pubs It's gonna be apocalyptic baby so get ready There's gonna be fighting, there's gonna be blood There's gonna be alcohol and probably drugs There's gonna be dancing, there's gonna be trouble, are you ready? Are you ready? Are you ready for this? We're gonna be drinking until daylight You wouldnae want to be a polis that night The cells will be bursting It'll be lilke The Purge so get ready Be careful out there, whatever you do And I just pray that it ain't a full moon There's gonna be hugging and kissing and cuddling so get ready Are you ready? Are you ready for this? It's gonna be jumping, it's gonna be great There's gonna be dancing in the streets of Raith It's gonna be like the last days of Rome so get ready It's gonna get manky, it's gonna get mean It's gonna be barry post COVID-19 The night that they let us back in the pubs, are you ready? Are you ready? Are you ready for this?

It's still so hard to believe Five years have passed since you were here We drank a cold beer and we shot the breeze Talked about the family, politics, history A lifetime of happy memories It was the last day you could talk You told bad jokes, we laughed a lot You said we'd meet up on the other side I raised a glass but never knew It was the last drink I'd have with you So much to give but you ran out of time Since you've gone, yeah, I guess we've all moved on And it's pretty quiet down but I'm pretty lonely Your jokes live on, I tell them to everyone Yeah it's pretty quiet down but I'm very lonely Since you've gone I've done my best To fill the void that you have left Till everything in this life fades away The world, it kept rolling on, and everybody's struggling And I just seem to drift from day to day You taught me many things in life Good from bad, wrong from right You could always fix my problems You taught me not to raise my hands To listen, reason, understand You could always see the good in everyone Since you've gone, yeah, I guess we've all moved on And it's pretty quiet down and it's pretty lonely Your jokes live on, I tell them to everyone Yeah it's pretty quiet down but it's very lonely Since you've gone, things have been pretty tough auld yin And I never tell anyone but I'm very lonely Since you've gone, well the world kept rolling on And it's pretty quiet down here but it's pretty lonely But your jokes live on, I tell them to everyone Yeah it's pretty quiet down but it's pretty lonely Since you've gone, yeah the world kept rolling on And it's pretty quiet down here but it's pretty lonely
