As Usual

1.        I woke up with an aching head .... As Usual
        I can't remember going to bed .... As Usual
        Somewhere deep inside my brain
        I think I hear a diesel train
        I promise not to drink again .... As Usual

2.        I sucked the drink up like a Hoover ... As Usual
        V.P. wine and paint remover         ... As Usual
        My stomachs feeling mighty queer
        It must have been the (Local?) beer
        And nothing in my head is clear ... As Usual

3.        Woke up this morning in the park    ... As Usual
        I must have crawled there after dark... As Usual
        I`ll have to see how much I've got
        "Jesus Christ, I've spent the lot!"
        I must have been a drunken sot ... As Usual.


The drink (VP wine) in the second verse is sometimes Lanliq (or similar)

In the 3rd line substitute whatever the local ale is i.e. Boddies, McEwans etc
