Track Name: Barfly
Broken bottles in the bathroom, paper on the floor, got some neon signs hanging over the door, saying "come on in, you've been here before," it's like everyone knows your name. Bar's to the left, pool table to the right, it looks like it's gonna be a helluva night, someone will get drunk, get in a fight, it's almost always the same.
Girls walking by in the shortest skirts, you can't believe what passes these days for a shirt, and the dudes in the tight pants that look like they hurt, they're gonna try to get some tonight. Waitress is practicing her balancing act, she's got 3 beer bottles and 3 shots of Jack, and you sit in the corner watching people react. It's all quite a sight.
Tonight you're a barfly, just watching the world go by.
The bartender knows all the regulars' drinks, it's an easy job, that's what everybody thinks, you wish the dude at the jukebox would just play some Kinks while you wait to shoot some pool. There's a drunk girl sitting all alone at the bar, later on she'll go home and go a little too far with the guy on the bike, he don't drive a car because cars ain't cool.
Tonight you're a barfly...
A couple brothers drop in from the frat, they're all polo shirts and visor hats, keg party date party life's just a cocktail party drinking all day and all night. Got off late now it's time to cut loose what you having tonight it ain't too hard to choose, a little blow to go with the booze you gonna let everything slide.
Tonight you're a barfly.
(Yeah, you are)
