The Lyrics

I'm at and

One thing I've found in my first ten years as an adult, places referred to as dives, trash, or dirty are usually fun little places. . .here's my tribute to them
Well I just want to go get some alcohol
But here's the catch, no cash at all
Booze is cheap and food is warm,
Paradise is found
until the morn
and they have few lights, in this place
All the patrons bruised their face
No place to sit, so I just stand
A whole in the wall, that's my plan

Whether you're a preacher or whether you're a teacher
Let's hang at a dive, hang at a dive
Costs are always risin, so I am advising, people,
Let's hit the dives, go to the dives
drink, eat, piss, sleep, Visiting dives, Visiting dives
fall, dance, play, meet, Dancing at diiiives

Yes we are

Well the food it blows the dude are high
And the women are after a rich young guy
Chicken wings will be done soon
I'm a working man struggle with my dues
You know I'm all right. It's OK.
Cause I have found this treasured place
In the rough, there are diamonds
So don't pass up the alley man!

Whether you're a worker or if you're just a lurker
Best be hitting the dives, hitting the dives
Karaoke singing and we will all be drinking, people,
Swinging at dives, loving them dives
Love, hate, Drink, Great, Lovin the dives, lovin the dives
Docs, Moms, Dads, Cops Checking the diives


Must party somewhere. Just pull up a chair
Cause you are welcome here, yeah
It's not a nightmare. You'll be so fly here, yeah.
Down at the diiiiiive!!

Well, no one cares bout your problems, they've had a lot
They are open there—and they love to talk
Juke-box on a homely charm,
Good times will be found
Those the walls are torn
and the price is right. drunks are great
Just love to watch them throwing grapes
Please don't try to understand
Just grab an ice cold Heineken

Hang out with your others, but don't brink your mother
She'd not like the dive, not like the dive
Their front doors are shakin, soon we'll all be tankin, people,
Check out the dives, check out the dives
Belch, yelp, Jump, help, Fight at the dives, fight at the dives
Duck, Punch, throw lunch Down at the diiiiives


Sit at a bar chair Somebody serve me
Somebody serve me, yeah.
Let's have some fun there. It's gonna be a blast
I'm down at a diiiiiiiiiiiiive
Having a blast dear, Spent my paycheck here
I need another beer (aaah aaaah aaah)
Life at the bar here. I'm loving this place here
I'm down at the diiiiiiiiiiive
Ain't going nowhere, Starting to slur here
I'm having a good time

Fives for "Dives."

What makes this parody so great (and you probably don't know it) is that this song is used during the bar fight scene in Airplane! and the place is totally a dive (it even features girl scouts beating each other up)

sirDave, you would've loved the ~BAD OTTER~ Saloon~ out on the Coast in NorCAL !

I really don't have more to say than I have already. This was pretty good and it totally reminds me of that scene in "Airplane!" which is bonus points for you because I love that movie.

(Artistry) Clever clever Davey! I didn't know exactly what to expect after reading the title, but this is fantastic. A lot of clever writing and near-rhymes. 555

I liked this, there seems to be a genuine affection for the topic, which could have gone the cynical route...sort of the disco answer to Toby Keith's "I Love This Bar".

(Artistry) I bet this song would go over great at a dive. Well, for the few people who were sober enough to pay attention. :-)

(Artistry) Interesting idea, and you did really well with it. Loved the subs for the "aah, aah, aah, aah" bits, particularly "drink, eat, piss, sleep" which made me LOL. $555 bar tab for you!

Artistry...well, I can count on one hand the number of times that I've even been IN a bar...and this doesn't make me want to start going more. Haha. Lots of funny lines, though...and I also (like Agri) was reminding of Toby Keith's "I Love This Bar."
