lyrics

Steamers

Every Friday night around ten to ten
The boys start looking for a girl to win
And the girls don't mind. They're drinking free white wine

Well the beer starts talking they've been out since 3
And the girls pretend to like the boy's company
Oh but that's all right. It happens every time

But deep down we know, they'll all leave alone
Cos the boys pass out around around ten past two
And a taxi home is the girl's next move

The day I see proof that all pigs can fly
The day that the moon is pulled by the tide
The day all MPs can stop telling lies
That's when the steamers shelling out for drinks take home the girl

Well you'd think they'd learn by the age they're at
There ain't no girl wants a drunken twat
But the guys in here yeh they persevere

You can tell she's stringin him along for shots
But he don't care cos he thinks she's hot
For his East coast twang and his transit van

They all want their hole but past weeks have shown
That the boys pass out around ten to three
And the girls go looking for chips and cheese

The day Stevie Ray, headlines Glastonbury
The day junkies give me peace on the street
The day they award a grammy to me
That's when the steamers shelling out for drinks take home the girl
