Now here we come with revelry's
Rebellion in our hearts
'Cause here we know just where we stand:
It's over by the bar
Reflected years encroaching on
The faces by the stage
The same old fear's been coming here
Since we were underage

We're going home Sally, home baby
Coming on down the way
Home Sally, home baby
Any old time of day
While there's whiskey in the water
Well the band are gonna play
'Til we go home Sally, home baby
Any old time – any old time of day

Well the music's so old fashioned
Someone's playing a guitar
For all we care speed garage
Is a place you park the car
There are no turning tables
We're just moving in reverse
We've been so long together
Do we make each other worse?

I'll lower my defences and let you in tonight
But buried in my armour I'll be doing fine

Now by morning all the tables
Smashed to kindling in the hearth
I'll do my convalescing
Keep my spirits in a jar
'Cause what's a bowl and punch or two
Between a group of friends?
And when the sun goes down
We're gonna start it all again
