DRINK ALL DAY (GOT TO FIND YOUR OWN WAY HOME) (Robert J. Purvis)

You can drink all day, you can drink all night

But I want no trouble and you gotta find your own way

Drink all day, you can drink all night

But I want no trouble and you gotta find your own way home


There's a man over there and he's leaning on the bar

By the way the fella's standing, I can tell he won't be goin' far

Nobody cares 'cos they're all the bloody same

It's a shame I have to bother but I gotta keep the place clean


You can drink all day, you can drink all night

But I want no trouble and you gotta find your own way

Drink all day, you can drink all night

But I want no trouble and you gotta find your own way home


[dobro solo]


Dirty Ella in the corner with a belly full of rum

If you tell her where you're going, you can bet she'll come along

There's a label on her ankle, there's a tally on her shoe

For a pocket full of lollies, maybe you're a sucker too


You can drink all day, you can drink all night

But I want no trouble and you gotta find your own way

Drink all day, you can drink all night

But I want no trouble and you gotta find your own way home


[dobro solo]


Get a grip of what you're holding, take a look at where you are

You been dancing on the table, but you'll never be a star

Making quite an exhibition, would you do it in your home?

Go and sit down in the corner, leave the quiet man alone


You can drink all day, you can drink all night

But I want no trouble and you gotta find your own way

Drink all day, you can drink all night

But I want no trouble and you gotta find your own way

Drink all day, you can drink all night

But I want no trouble and you gotta find your own way

Drink all day, you can drink all night

But I want no trouble and you gotta find your own way home.

DRINK ALL DAY (GOT TO FIND YOUR OWN WAY HOME) (Robert J. Purvis)
[Live version]


You can drink all day, you can drink all night

But I want no trouble and you gotta find your own way

Drink all day, drink all night

I want no trouble and you gotta find your own way home


There's a man over there and he's leaning on the bar

By the way the fella's standing, I can tell he won't be goin' far

Nobody cares, they're all the bloody same

It's a shame I have to bother, I gotta keep the place clean


You can drink all day, you can drink all night

But I want no trouble and you gotta find your own way

Drink all day, drink all night

I want no trouble and you gotta find your own way home


[harmonica solo]


Dirty Ella in the corner with a belly full of rum

If you tell her where you're going, you can bet she'll come along

There's a label on her ankle, there's a tally on her shoe

For a pocket full of lollies, baby you're a sucker too


You can drink all day, you can drink all night

But I want no trouble and you gotta find your own way

Drink all day, drink all night

I want no trouble and you gotta find your own way home


[harmonica solo]


Get a grip of what you're holding, take a look at where you are

You been dancing on the table, but you'll never be a star

Making quite an exhibition, would you do it in your home?

Go and sit down in the corner, leave the quiet man alone


You can drink all day, you can drink all night

But I want no trouble and you gotta find your own way

Drink all day, drink all night

I want no trouble and you gotta find your own way (home)

Drink all day, drink all night

I want no trouble and you gotta find your own way (home)

Drink all day, drink all night

I want no trouble and you gotta find your own way home

(Drink all day).
