the housemartins, happy hour

Music and lyrics The Housemartins

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 it's them who choose and if you don't win then you've lost

What a good place to be don't believe her
'Cause they speak a different language
And it's never really happened to me

(It's happy hour again)
Don't believe her oh no
'Cause it's never really happened to me
(It's happy hour again)
Oh woah woah

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

(It's happy hour again)
Don't believe her oh no
'Cause it's never really happened to me
(It's happy hour again)
Woah woah woah woah ho

What a good place to be don't believe her
'Cause they speak a different language
And it's never really happened to me

(It's happy hour again)
Don't believe her oh no
'Cause it's never really happened to me
(It's happy hour again)
Don't believe her, don't believe her, 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

Build


the housemartins, build

Music and lyrics The Housemartins

Clambering men in big bad boots
Dug up my den, dug up my roots
Treated us like plasticine town
They built us up and knocked us down

From Meccano to Legoland
Here they come with a brick in their hand
Men with heads filled up with sand
It's build

It's build a house where we can stay
Add a new bit everyday
It's build a road for us to cross
Build us lots and lots and lots and lots and lots

Whistling men in yellow vans
They came and drew us diagrams
Showed us how it all worked it out
And wrote it down in case of doubt

Slow, slow, quick, quick, quick
It's wall to wall and brick to brick
They work so fast it makes you sick
It's build

It's build a house where we can stay
Add a new bit everyday
It's build a road for us to cross
Build us lots and lots and lots and lots and lots

It's build
