[Repeat; x2]
Whoa oh

Staggering home everybody sings (whoa oh)
All the old songs, the cockney routines (whoa oh)
All the old women, all the young men (whoa oh)
Try changing places then back again (whoa oh)

Old man in the morning
Young man at night
Breakfast full of wisdom
Until you hit the lights

Knock back the drinks, hitch up your skirt (whoa oh)
Fall over backwards, undo your shirt (whoa oh)
Everyone shouting what a terrible state (whoa oh)
Age creeping backwards as it gets late (whoa oh)

Old man in the morning
Young man at night
Breakfast full of wisdom
Until you hit the lights

Have a quick short forget about work (whoa oh)
Have a couple more then you go berserk (whoa oh)
Who cares about this morning wise old man (whoa oh)
The wisdom comes up later and goes down the pan (whoa oh)

Old man in the morning
Young man at night
Breakfast full of wisdom
Until you hit the lights

Then another round, forget who's turn (whoa oh)
Waking up to feel your stomach churn (whoa oh)
Who's in the chair and who's on the floor (whoa oh)
Incoherants knocking on the door (whoa oh)

Old man in the morning
Young man at night
Breakfast full of wisdom
Until you hit the lights
Hit the lights
