lyrics

Hello Ladies, Hello Gents
Hang your coats beside the bar and for a couple of cents you
Feel cool the only way you’re used to, and it’s a marvelous way to keep the blues at bay, but it’s early and so wait a minute.

Hello Manhattan, Hello Beer,
Fine wine, she’s only wearing her year and she’s
Wrapped in the arms of her adorers, unaware of the morning of horrors, you wake up slowly and say...

“This could be the first of the worst of my,
This could be the best of the best of my,
or This could be the first day of the rest of my life.”

So you’re in New York, Maybe Bangkok,
You find a drink like finding gum on the sidewalk.
One sip and the world has never felt smaller, like the ice spinning round in your highball glass, you’re a baller- no, wait a minute

Last call and your heading home, Next thing you know you’re on the telephone singing,
“I’m fine but I’ll be doing time behind the wrong kind of bars and in the wrong state of mind and when they open the doors, they’ll tell me something along the lines of...”

“This could be the first of the worst of my,
This could be the best of the best of my,
or This could be the first day of the rest of my life.”

Hello Ladies, Hello Gents
Hang your coats beside the bar and for a couple of cents you
Feel cool the only way you’re used to, and it’s a marvelous way to keep the blues at bay, but it’s early and so wait a minute.

“This could be the first of the worst of my,
This could be the best of the best of my,
or This could be the first day of the rest of my life.”
