Closing Time
Jaya the Cat Lyrics


Closing time is closing in
Last call, the bar is 'gesloten'
Don't have to go home but you can't stay here
Stumble down the stairs into the streets again

Might be an answer here but I don't know
Gave up my sanity to save my soul
SMS from the afterlife there on my phone
Says "Relax while you're here and
Don't sweat the tomorrow"
Sometimes the money ain't coming in
Sometimes you forget why you're living
Sometimes you lose sometimes you win
Sometimes you give sometimes you get taken

Under the neon lights sweeping the floors
Pull up the chairs and wipe the bar down man
One last shot and you're out the door
And it's over

God knows but he just ain't tellin'
Why the devil gets to sleep while all the angels have to
Sing for a living in this off-key choir
Forgive my transgressions fulfill my desire
If I was with you I'd be home tonight
But you're so far away that I just stopped trying
Better off sailing on this sea of life
From one boat to the next
Sunk by a hurricane
Sometimes time just goes slipping by
Sometimes you can lose focus in life
But as you stumble out into the morning light
Well it's all right

Under the neon lights sweeping the floors
Pull up the chairs and wipe the bar down man
One last shot and you're out the door
And it's over

Closing time is closing in
Last call the bar is gesloten
Don't have to go home but you can't stay here
Stumble thru the doors into the streets again
Might be an answer here but i don't know
Gave up my sanity to save my soul
Sms from the afterlife there on my phone
Says relax while you're here and don't sweat the tomorrows
Sometimes the money ain't coming in
Sometimes you forget why you're living
Sometimes you lose and sometimes you win
Sometimes you give sometimes you get taken
Under the neon lights sweeping the floor
Put up the chairs and wipe the bar down man
One last shot and you're out the door
And it's over
God knows but he just ain't telling
Why the devil gets to sleep while all the angels have to
Sing for a living in this offkey choir
Forgive my transgressions, fulfill my desires
If i was with you i'd be home tonight
But you're so far away that i just stopped trying
Better off sailing on this sea of life
From one port to the next
Than sunk by your hurricane
Sometimes time just goes slipping by
Sometimes you can lose focus in life
But as you stumble out into the morning light
Well it's alright

Oh, that makes more sense. I that he was pretending to say "closing" or "closed" all drunk-like

Cheeesus

That must be the worst poured pint I have ever seen at the start

I think it's safe to assume it's better than any pint of lager you'd ever get in the UK though! Chemical free, cold and with a head.

I always thought it was "The Bar in Heslooten" (probably some town in the Netherlands i've never heard about). Guess i was wrong.
