  • Lyrics
  • I know what's to come
    Though I'm feeling happy now
    The knowing I'm drunk
    Of ways of knowing it always lets me down

    'Cause I always stay too long
    Long enough for something to go wrong

    I'm in a brawl
    'Cause I won't take your lying now
    Writing's on the wall
    The police are on their way right now

    'Cause I always stay too long
    Long enough for something to go wrong
    Yeah, I always stay too long
    Fair ladies better sing my

    S-s-song
    S-s-song
    S-s-song
    S-s-song

    I've got my girlfriend ringing me
    Belling me up
    I know I should probably answer
    But I just can't be fucked

    I've got my peeps then with me
    And I'm having a blast
    I'm feeling so fucking good right now
    I want it to last

    So I put my phone on silent
    And I refill my glass
    The music's so fucking banging
    Feel like I wanna dance

    I'm at the bar and I see this chick
    Checking me out
    From afar, yeah, she wants my dick
    There ain't a doubt

    She's got a skirt so short
    Make you drool from the mouth
    Looking my way as if to say
    I'm in with a shout

    So I pull a chair over there
    And buy her a drink,
    She says, "Cheers" I say, "Yeah"
    Our glasses go clink

    Now I'm being bad in the car
    Rubbing this girl
    Once the cab is paid
    We make our way up to the hotel

    Now I'm in the lift getting lips
    Go nice and slow
    But do I care, do I fuck
    Come on a roll, yo

    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on,

    Come on a roll, yo

    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on

    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on

    Come on a roll, yo

    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on

    I've got my peeps then with me
    At the bar doing shots
    'Cause now we're so fucking plastered
    We don't know when to stop

    I've got my girlfriend ringing me
    Belling me up
    I know I should probably answer
    But I just can't be fucked

    I've got my peeps then with me
    And I'm having a blast
    I'm feeling so fucking good right now
    I want it to last

    So I put my phone on silent
    And I refill my glass
    The music's so fucking banging
    Feel like I wanna dance

    I'm at the bar and I see this chick

    From afar, yeah, she wants my dick

    Looking my way as if to say
    I'm in with a shout

    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on
    Come on, come on
