Drunk & In Love (M.Brooks) I wrote this one in Dolgellau. When the 'Sesiwn Fawr' festival was in the town square I saw many of the young locals with their girl under one arm and a crate of lager under the other.
The fiddle riff is from the traditional Welsh song "Torth O Fara"
Whatever the weather my skies are clear Whenever we're together clouds dissapear We're out on the town and we're both on the beer As sober as a newt and a skunk We lean against each other as we totter down the street Wraps our arms round one another and our lips meet If we were more sober we would be more decreet But we're not we're in love and we're drunk
CHORUS And we don't care what they say we don't care what they think They can stare all they like and yeah we've had a drink Do you love me? Yes I do You're my best friend and I love you
We stumble and we stagger but we still stand Still our stagger has a swagger 'cause we're feeling grand We skiaddle over soon we're smooching to the band No matter that they're playing thrash punk My gaze meets your gaze soon your mouth meets mine We're snogging as the band plays and dancing out of time She loves me and I love her and I feel fine You and me we're in love and we're drunk.
I'm in love with you and your'e in love with me we're both intoxicated going steadily Under the influence as high as we can be We are in love and we're drunk
As we wind our weary way walking arm in arm As we stagger and we sway they shouldn't be alarmed We're full of love and liquor don't mean nobody no harm Show me the way to my bunk We feel happy yeah we feel alright And I'm a happy chappie I'm as high as a kite Looking forward to thge time when we kiss goodnight The way we kiss when in love and drunk
