Lyrics

1 and Chorus
Well it’s Friday night and me shift is done,
I’m off into Barnsley for to have some fun,
I’ve got meself together and I feel ten ton,
So let’s get cracking on the bunny run.

2
I’ll ask our lass if I can borrow twenty pounds,
I’ll meet up with me mates and we’ll go round town,
We’ll drink and scrap and have a laugh,
I’m that excited nearly had a bath.

3
Drinking wi’ our lass is quite alright,
But it’s no bloody good on a Friday night,
So she goes wi’ her mates and I go wi’ mine,
That way we all have a real good time.

4
My idea of perfect heaven,
Is to start off wi’ a couple in the Number Seven,
A few in t’ Shakey and the Corner Pin,
Another in t’ Chennels if they’ll let us in!

5
Well I love to strut down Wellington Street,
Give some chat to the lasses that we meet,
They wear next to nothing and sometimes less,
Very much to me liking I must confess.

6
At half past eleven we get thrown out the pub,
It’s a big decision, a curry or a club,
Or maybe just get the last bus home,
No takers for that one, I should have known!

7
It’s three in the morning, there’s an aching in me head,
A churning in me belly as I lie here in me bed!
But it’s no good regretting the things I’ve done,
I’ll be out next week on the bunny run!
