Just another day Can't get out of bed, but I have to go to work. It's just like every day Feeling like crap, because I have to start at 5am. I'm getting sick of this, working 15 hour shifts I'm getting sick of this, working 7 days a week I'm getting sick of this, no time to party with my friends this must come to an end chorus: Are you ready, for the last party of your life. We'll be drinking beer and whiskey together. No one will be leaving alive. cause we've been waiting for so long, Now tonight will last forever. so get ready and join us at our endless party tonight! Will we see the day when we figure out a way, to break away from all this misery the day we realize, there is much more to life then constantly be worried about getting by I'm getting sick of this, working 15 hour shifts I'm getting sick of this, working 7 days a week I'm getting sick of this, no time to party with my friends this must come to an end (chorus) There have to be more people just like me Who realize that being free Isn't what free is supposed to be It's time for everyone to wake up Or has everyone been hypnotized All I know is that, this shit isn't working for me (chorus) so get ready to join us at our endless party get ready to join us at our endless party we're gonna have a party, until the day we die

No Regrets 02:46
A night out with the boys, hit some bars hit some pubs. Give me a whiskey on the rocks to warm up. In fact bring me the bottle, no need for a glass Don't worry about it cause we're gonna drink it all And after one hour, the room starts spinning I'm fighting it off, but the liquor is winning while hugging the crapper, i feel much better as my reflection pukes back at me The night at it's end, as the sun hits the sky. No money for the rent but no regrets for tonight, A night to remember but I'm sure I'll forget Cause liquor has dried up my brain. Time for bed, I don't have to work in the morning, But my liver will work all day!

I'll be your lovely buttercup, if you want me to be. Then you'll be my dandelion, so I can blow you away from me. the night's they are the hardest, I don't like to sleep alone. But I'm a lonely soldier, with a mission away from home. and ooooo, Till this day I'm convinced. we were done before we started now it's time for me to leave. Guild is filling me up, regrets I have tons. Your mood is slowly changing, an strange ambiance. I hide and duck away from us, take cover from the bombs. Like a stranger in a battlefield, with bullets and guns. and ooooo, Till this day I'm convinced. It was over for it started And now it's time for me to leave. Together forever, guess I should have known better then this but still miss, your lips, how you kissed Together forever, guess I should have known better then this I still miss, your lips, how you kissed with me The tide is slowly changing, the ship that was stuck, Now gently slides through the river, but I'll won't push my luck. No mines, torpedo's, battleships, it's quiet as can be. But there won't be a next time…. cause I'll just leave. Together forever, guess I should have none better then this I still miss, your lips, how you kiss Together forever, guess I should have none better then this I still miss, your lips, how you kiss with me Together forever, guess I should have none better then this I still miss, your lips, how you kiss (Together, forever) Together forever, guess I should have none better then this I still miss, your lips, how you kiss with me (Together, forever) Together forever, guess I should have none better then this I still miss, your lips, how you kiss (Together, forever) Together forever, guess I should have none better then this I still miss, your lips, how you kiss with me (Together, forever)

Whatsherface 05:07
I watch her working serving drinks at the bar while smoking my sigaret I order my whiskey on the rocks I see her smiling not sure if she's smiling at me well I wish I could be that guy worth smiling for but what would a beautiful girl like her want with a stupid drunk guy like me her ass really is much prettier, then my face will ever be makes me wonder if she has flaws at all I try to call her Hey girl I'd like another drink but she refuses to serve me unless I remember her name so I start thinking I try and I try and I try and I try can't remember her name even though I'm a regular now what would a beautiful girl like her want with a stupid drunk guy like me her ass really is much prettier, then my face will ever be makes me wonder if she has flaws at all Hey Maria, Or is it Sophia I’m sorry I don’t recall your name But alcohol is the one to blame Oh Joanna Or maybe Suzanna Please serve me another drink This place is trashed, but I guess that’s fine I’m walking on these sticky floors caused by the drinks that were spilled last night But between of all this filth, there’s one little ray of sunshine A beautiful unnamed flower, That's why I come here all the time Well I can't speak for all those other assholes She might think that i'm an asshole too Come to think of it, I'm actually pretty shitty because i'm always drunk around her because i'm always drunk around her Drink with me yes i'm hoping she'll Drink with me yes i'm hoping she'll Drink with me yes i'm hoping she'll get too drunk too see the way too drunk fuckup that I can be

Dear Friend 02:40
In desperate times , in times of need You were there , there for me When i was feeling down and sad I am glad that i had A friend like you on my side Whom shared the tears when i cried And felt the pain when i was hurt Well that is just absurd When i was drunk and on the floor You'd pick me up and just ignore The fact you had to carry me All the way home so no one sees That i was just a hopeless mess and it was due your honesty That i became a better man I'll thank you when I can So if you have a friend like him raise your glass and we honor them together It's a fact that we all need A dear friend, so lets honor them together I remember it like yesterday My girl , o shit she ran away She ran away with another man You cheered me up like no one can And led me to my special one My perfect life had just begun We're still together till this day well I thank you my dear mate So if you have a friend like him Raise your glass and we honour them together It's a fact that we all need A dear friend, so lets honour them together If you have a friend like him Raise your glass, and we honour them together Its a fact that we all need A dear friend, so lets honour them together

Hold On 03:16
No job no money left things are left unsaid my car just broke down but that won't make me sad life might suck for a while but I'll bring back my smile I've got lots of friends no life just ain't so bad and if you think I'd get depressed after all that's said and done I'll tell you that your wrong I think we've got to hold on to the things we haven't lost to all things we have got I think we've got to go on doing all good things we've done then life just will go on then life just will go on (new verse) Now that time has passed shitty things still come my way killed a man by accident man, that was a fucked up day Got arrested by the cops they asked me to explain turns out I did nothing wrong but I'm still the one they blame and if you think I'd get depressed after all that's said and done I'll tell you that your wrong I think we've got to hold on to the things we haven't lost to all things we have got I think we've got to go on doing all good things we've done then life just will go on then life just will go on

My darling when you read this, I'll be long gone But I have loved you all this time. Please tell the children who I was, And what I left behind. I have left you some money, in an envelope It's all that I could save. It isn't much, but it is enough, For food and clothes my love. Tell them how we loved, And ask them to do the same. Give them a kiss on their foreheads And tell them it'll be okay. Put all my possessions in a wooden box. Scatter my ashes at sea. You can cry all you want, my darling love, But don't feel sorry for me. Put all my possessions in a wooden box. Scatter my ashes at sea. You can cry all you want, my darling love, But don't feel sorry for me. Put all my possessions in a wooden box. Scatter my ashes at sea. You can cry all you want, my darling love, But don't feel sorry for me. Put all my possessions in a wooden box. Scatter my ashes at sea. You can cry all you want, my darling love, But don't feel sorry for me. No don't feel sorry for me.

My lord you seem depressed The land it ain’t looking at it’s best There are things to be done, no time for rest There isn’t enough food for every one These fields are dead. We will all go down, with the fisher king If he won't step up. Nobody will win Your intentions are sincere, but it’s been a miserable year. With your words, you mess up, My thoughts. Drag me down. We will all go down, With the fisher king (There is no hope) With the fisher king (You can try, but there’s no light, at the end of the night) With the fisher king (We’ll all go down) Things were looking up for the king. But the queen was fed-up and she left him. God forbid his one true love, she salted his wounds. So with your words, you mess up My thoughts. Drag me down. We will all go down, With the fisher king (There is no hope) With the fisher king (You can try, There’s no light, at the end of the night) With the fisher king (We’ll all go down) We’ve been under his reign for way to long We have suffered this curse long enough It’s time to cut ourselves loose To claim back what we owned Decide your own fate And watch the fields grow! Fuck the fisherking (And you will find hope) Fuck the fisherking (Leave him behind, Yeah you will find, your peace of mind) Fuck the fisherking (fuck the fisherking)

The night is cold, the night is long But two pints of beer will surely keep you warm Three pints of beer, can’t think clear But at the Fourth, the curse is here I remember,(he remembers) I was at the pub I winked at you and then you stood up You walked towards me and then I got to see My beer goggles were not working for me Another pint in front of you. You really should stop but you don’t know how to. OK last one Drunken man’s curse, here we come Your drunk and you fell on your arse, But it’s probably the drunken man’s curse Gravity ain’t your friend you see When your under the drunken man's curse. Five! Drunk dial your ex wife Six! Through some tequila in the mix Seven! Oh!? It’s only eleven Eight! throw up all over your mate I remember, (what happened) I was at the bar I was.. so.. drunk.. lost the keys to my car You thought it was a lesson, like hell it was Stayed and drank all night, so raise yer glass. Another pint in front of you. You really should stop but you don’t know how to. OK last one Drunken man’s curse, here we come!!! Your drunk and you fell on your arse, But it’s probably the drunken man’s curse Gravity ain’t your friend you see, When your under the drunken man's curse. Your drunk and you fell in love, But it’s probably the drunken man’s curse your front door key is not your friend you see, When your under the drunken man's curse.

My father was a sailor-man back in the day Back in the day, when I was young. Just a baby boy, but man did I love him To you, in the night, I would call. I didn't see much of him when I was younger And boy, did I miss him a lot. But when he came home, he kissed me and hugged me With humongous tattooed arms. A sleeve full of memories, each picture a story I'm so proud to be a part of that arm. Anchors, bottles, ships and a picture of me as his lucky charm. The ship, his passion, his work, his life, and it brought him back to us. An anchor stands for safety, security, protection That's what he needed the most The bottle is a comfort late at night, When he looked at pictures of us. And I earned that spot, cause kids are forever, On those humongous tattooed arms. A sleeve full of memories, each picture a story I'm so proud to be a part of that arm. Anchors, bottles, ships and a picture of me as his lucky charm. A sleeve full of memories, each picture a story I'm so proud to be a part of that arm. Anchors, bottles, ships and a picture of me as his lucky charm.

That Kiss 02:51
I'm standing in front of my granddad's house He opens up, and gives me a smile I say, hey old man, you're looking great today I hope, when at your age, I'll look half as great as you His smile fades away and he says young man Growing old ain't as great as you'd think it would be Don't get me wrong I've seen some wonderful things I've seen a little girl turn into your mother And a little boy, into you It's your friends, your mates, your comrades But mostly your wife you'll miss Now i sit here, thinking of them How they all came to pass It's the nights we would drink, The nights of fun But mostly I miss that kiss I miss that kiss He told me the stories about a wonderful time About a time with his friends The mischievous he'd done and the pranks he pulled The old man, had me laughing all day long Then his face turned sad, with a tear in his eye And I know that he's thinking of her My granddad, he lost his wife The one he always stood by The one that he now misses It's your friends, your mates, your comrades But mostly your wife you'll miss Now i'm sitting here, thinking of them How they all came to pass It's the nights we would drink, The nights of fun But mostly I miss that kiss I miss that kiss

Stop 02:43
Tired of trying to be the one, that people think I am or they expect me to be. Tired of changing the way I react, when i'm angry or sad, can you please let me be. I will not change or take in consideration, what someone wants to alter 'bout me. Never again do i want to feel like I am some kind of joke due to losers and fuck-ups, who think they know better than me. Do not expect i will fail at my life, cause with you as example that's not what i strive for I am content with my own flawes and outbrakes, my problems and mistakes so just let me be I will not change or take in consideration, what someone I don't even know, wants to alter 'bout me. Never again do i want to feel worthless, due to losers and fuck-ups, who think they know better than me. Why won't you stop, blaming me for the things you fucked up blaming me for the things gone wrong blaming me for the things that you've done For the times that you tried to be so condescending you're not fully understanding, i just don't give a fuck. And I know every time i was trying to help, you'll be giving me hell,for just being around, You're reflecting on me on how your life really sucks, blaming me for your failures, so why won't you stop you're just a loser a fuck-up who thinks he knows better than me Why won't you stop, blaming me for the things you fucked up blaming me for the things gone wrong blaming me for the things that you've done I will not change or take in consideration, what someone wants to alter 'bout me. Never again do i want to feel like I am a losers a fuck-up, or some kind of joke You're reflecting on me on how your life really sucks, blaming me for your failures, so why won't you stop you're just a loser a fuck-up who thinks he knows better than me

Johnny was a friend of mine, We hadn’t met for some time. We drank and laughed the night away, “great fun for everyone” Till we got jumped from behind, Johnny got kicked in the spine. And we started shouting: “What the hell did we do wrong?” And they said: fuck you johnny! And knocked him to the ground. He got stabbed and they left him there to die. We drank our beers! And man, did we cry. While I lay awake I can still hear them shout. Beat up good johnny now, it’s all in good fun. Beat up good johnny now, there’s nowhere you can run Beat up good johnny now, it’s all in good fun. Beat up good johnny now, there’s nowhere you can run he begged them for mercy offered everything he had But they just wouldn’t stop (bashing his head) As i look back, I still don’t know how and why he was the unlucky one (to be the one to die) And they said: fuck you johnny! And knocked him to the ground. He got stabbed and I left him there to die. We drank our beers! And man, did we cry. While I lay awake I can still hear them shout. Beat up good johnny now, it’s all in good fun. Beat up good johnny now, there’s nowhere you can run Beat up good johnny now, it’s all in good fun. Beat up good johnny now, there’s nowhere you can run We never saw it coming, These hoodlums attacked him They beat him half to death While I was on the run. And when I looked back I regret that I ran, Instead of helping him, Ashamed to be called a friend. we never saw it coming I guess its just our luck they beat us half to death and to everyone’s surprise they got out a knife and they stabbed johnny twice I started running, But john got left behind. And they said: fuck you johnny! And knocked him to the ground. He got stabbed and they left him there to die. We drank our beers! And man, did we cry. While I lay awake I can still hear them shout. Beat up good johnny now, it’s all in good fun. Beat up good johnny now, there’s nowhere you can run Beat up good johnny now, it’s all in good fun. Beat up good johnny now, there’s nowhere you can run Beat up good johnny now, Beat up good johnny now, Beat up good johnny now, Beat up good johnny now There's nowhere you can run

about

Drunken Dolly Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Drunken Dolly started in 2004, inspired by bands
like “Dropkick Murphy's” and “Flogging Molly”.
through the years, the band managed to create
an cocky mix of punk and folk..
On their ep “Drunken Dolly and the
Drunken Man's Curse” you can hear the
raw sound of Rancid and NoFX, cheered up with a
hint of The Pogues and Dubliners. Add some Beach Boys style harmonic vocals and that's Drunken
Dolly.
