I like a pint of beer nearly every night, I like a yarn if the company is right, Goes in the pub, but they never say a sight, Cause they’re all playing Dommies in the bar! 2. Round in the smoke room, television on, Sometimes a quiz show, sometimes a song; Then you get the newsreel, on about the bomb, And they’re all-playing dommies in the bar! 3. All the best people, they go in the best room, Talk about the business slumps and the boom Somebody's going to lose their tea break soon Cause they’re all playing Dommies in the bar. 4. Now we don't know where we come from, We don't.
