In 'The Glen' on an international day Heard a girl with an American accent say "Shame that you don't serve S.A. What else can you git me?" She got a pint of bitter instead Turned at looked at me and said "I'm tryin' to cure my achin' head With the hair of the dog that bit me"
She said "I had a heavy sesion last night Then me and my borfiend had a fight Now he's gone the little shite But I'm glad the bastard quit me" I said "Last night I got pissed in Penarth" The boys in the corner sang 'Sosban Fach' We agreed there was time for another swift half Of the hair of the dog that bit me
CHORUS Too ra ra Too rai eh Tomorrow will be better than yesterday With a pint to help me on my way Of the hair of the dog that bit me
We kept in touch and got along fine We sent each other Valentines She even knitted me a jumper one time But took it back when it didn't fit me We often went to the pub with each other And the next day we would have to recover So we'd go back again and order another Of the hair of the dog that bit me
One night as we walked along the coast She said I'd exorcised the ghost Of the man that she'd once loved the most And then it finally hit me She didn't say who she prefered But left it for me to infer The only thing I was for her Was the hair of the dog that bit me
She buggered off not long after that She just walked out and left me flat I felt like I'd been such a prat For letting her bullshit me I went off to drown my sorrows Drinking like there was no tommorrow For weeks as in self pity I'd wallow In the hair of the dog that bit me
Wish she was with me sitting here As I gulp another pint of beer I've only got one souvenir That Valentine's card she writ me I wish I could have read her mind To know that she'd leave me behind Perhaps there was a clue in how the card was signed "To the hair of the dog that bit me"
