Happy Hour
The Housemartins Lyrics


It's happy hour again
I think I might be happy if I wasn't out with them
And they're happy it's a lovely place to be
Happy that the fire is real the barman is a she

Where the haircuts smile
And the meaning of style
Is a night out with the boss
Where you win or you lose
And its them who choose
And if you don't win then you've lost

What a good place to be
Don't believe it
'Cause they speak a different language
And it's never really happened to me
Don't believe it, oh no
'Cause it's never been happy for me (oh)

It's another night out with the boss
Following in footsteps overgrown with moss
And he tells me that women grow on trees
And if you catch them right they will land upon their knees

Where they open all their wallets
And they close all their minds
And they love to buy you all a drink
And then we ask all the questions
And you take all your clothes off
And go back to the kitchen sink

What a good place to be
Don't believe her
'Cause they speak a different language
And it's never really happened to me
Don't believe her, oh no
'Cause it's never been happy for me

What a good place to be
Don't believe her
'Cause they speak a different language
And it's never really happened to me
Don't believe her, oh no
'Cause it's never been happy for me (it's happy hour again)

Don't believe her, don't believe her (it's happy hour again)
Don't believe her(it's happy hour again)

And again, and again
It's happy hour again, and again, and again
It's happy hour again, and again, and again
It's happy hour again

Verse 1]
It's happy hour again
I think I might be happy if I wasn't out with them
And they're happy, it's a lovely place to be
Happy that the fire's real, the barman is a she

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Where the haircuts smile and the meaning of style
Is a night out with the boss
Where you win or you lose, and it's them who choose
And if you don't win, then you've lost

[Chorus]
What a good place to be
Don't believe it
'Cause they speak a different language
And it's never really happened to me (It's happy hour again)
Don't believe it, oh no
'Cause it's never been happy for me (It's happy hour again)
No, woah-oh

[Verse 2]
It's another night out with the boss
Following in footsteps overgrown with moss
And he tells me that women grow on trees
And if you catch them right, they will land upon their knees

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Where they open all their wallets and they close all their minds
And they love to buy you all a drink
And then we ask all the questions, and you take all your clothes off
And go back to the kitchen sink

[Chorus]
What a good place to be
Don't believe it
'Cause they speak a different language
And it's never really happened to me (It's happy hour again)
Don't believe it, oh no
'Cause it's never been happy for me (It's happy hour again)
No, woah-oh, oh

[Chorus]
What a good place to be
Don't believe it
'Cause they speak a different language
And it's never really happened to me
Don't believe it, oh no
'Cause it's never been happy for me (It's happy hour again)

[Outro]
Don't believe it, don't believe it (It's happy hour again)
Don't believe it (It's happy hour again)
And again, and again
(It's happy hour again) and again, and again
(It's happy hour again) and again, and again
It's happy hour again

@Twiglet Judging by the PM's girth, he's not a stranger to a pint or two himself.

Just after Madness broke up these guys arrived in the nick of time like a northern version. Life was back to normal.

Less naughty version of Madness I say

Awe I love this song, it reminds me when I first started going out for happy hours clubbing when I was 18years old 😀😀😀

Andy McEachern

I never realized how much of an influence these guys were on Barenaked Ladies.
