Lyrics


Intro

"The Brothers The Bollox! The Brothers The Bollox! The Brothers The Bollox!
The Brothers The Bollox! The Brothers The Bollox! They get carried away!"

Hey! Hey! Hey, hey, hey!


Verse 1

We stand, in silence
And pray for better days
The Brothers, The Bollox
We'll get carried away

Now With bottles in hand
We cut and we stand
And get carried away
So, we're running around this dismal town
To piss the night away, hey!


Verse 2

With brothers to the left of me
And brothers to the right
With the music in the air ah
We'll get rowdy tonight

So raise 'em up and take 'em down
What more can we say?
So, we're running around this dismal town
To piss the night away, hey!


Chorus 1

Running around this dismal town
To piss the night away
I'm throwing the switch
You son of a bitch
They get carried away

They're running around this dismal town
To piss the night away
So sing 'em a song
We'll sing it along
And get carried away, hey!


Verse 3

My head, is tickin'
The clock is wearin' thin
With our heads held high
The bottles fly
We're tipsy once again

So grab your glass and kiss your ass
For well it's time to play
So we'll be running around this dismal town
To piss the night away, hey!


Chorus 2

Running around this dismal town
To piss the night away
I'm throwing the switch
You son of a bitch
They get carried away

We're running around this dismal town
To piss the night away
So sing us a song
We'll sing right along
We'll get carried away, hey!


Bridge

Hey! (32x)

a-1, 2, 3, 4! (@ 2:59)


Chorus 3

Running around a dismal town
To piss the night away
At the flip of the switch
The son of a bitch
They get carried away

We're running around this dismal town
To piss the night away
So sing us a song
We'll sing it along
And get carried away!

They're running around a dismal town
To piss the night away
At the flip of the switch
The son of a bitch
They get carried away

They're running around this dismal town
To piss the night away
So sing us a song
We'll sing along
And get carried away, hey hey!


Outro

"The Brothers The Bollox! The Brothers The Bollox! The Brothers The Bollox! The Brothers

The Brothers The Bollox! They get carried away!"
