lyrics

She said her name was Karyn,
That's Karyn with a "Y"
In a bar in Soho on the fourth of July
She came from up north
On leave from the military
The way she came on to me was getting kind of scary

So offered her my chair
But she said she wanted to share
I said I've got someone back home
And that was not why I was there...

Chorus:
Another round for my friends
Though our money's at an end
We're drunk enough to last until tomorrow
Another round for my friends
Though our money's at an end
We'll last until tomorrow
We'll worry about it then

We headed down to Portsmouth, Lee-on-Sollent to be precise
We stayed with some family that treated us all right
Busking in their living room tested all our wits
So we headed to the boardwalk and soon got over it

We thought we'd try our luck
Play and raise a few bucks
Before long we were looking for a pub
Because the busking really sucked

Repeat Chorus

We're heading up to Cambridge
We meet Delle Grimsmo-Powney
Eric Bleakley lies about being a sound-man (just kidding Eric)
Breaking mirrors off of cars and getting stuff stolen
Finding your clothes all floating in the river

And now you're going home (Spike)
With nothing but the shirt on your back
Having one last pint
At the Heathrow airport

Repeat chorus 2x
