The Lyrics

Life as a student can be hard sometimes...
I lie in my bed though I shouldn't be sleeping
In student bars, drinks are cheap
The house is a dump and the kitchen needs sweeping
Yet in the bars, drinks are cheap
I don't know why the fridge isn't cold yet, the milk's too old and smells
The bread is dry, the cheese is all mouldy
What have they sold me?

I look at the room and I notice it's turning
In student bars, drinks are cheap
My words double up on this paper I'm learning
In student bars, drinks are cheap
I don't know how I will revise it
I wouldn't advise you
I feel sick now, I can't deny it
Does that surprise you?

I groan to myself for I shouldn't go drinking
In student bars, drinks are cheap
My head really aches
In student bars, drinks are cheap

They were cheap at VT, but that was a long time ago. Thanks for bringing back memories.

Surely this should be credited to George Harrisong only? I think I saw him (and Eric, was it?) in Brum, England in December 1969! Sweet Indigothingymebob, for god's sake please contact me on: AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! mp
