One more game of cricket, and I’ll take the wickets before we hit the USA
Tell my little brother to look after my mother, I won’t be coming home today
Just a game, that’s all, up in Donegall, we’ll be gone for a couple of days
Just a game for the school, play it by the rules, and then we’ll drink the night away
Then we’ll drink the night away

Taking Johnny’s car, he’ll be here in an hour, and then we’ll be on our way
Gonna drive off far, under the stars, and let the night slip away
Oh it’s gonna be cool, all the boys from school, and the girls from down the way
Gonna dance around the fire, until we get tired, and then we’ll drink the night away
Then we’ll drink the night away
Then we’ll drink the night away
Then we’ll drink the night away

If we win the cup, you can fill ‘er up with a bottle of chardonnay
Give it to the girl with the beautiful curls who always comes to see us play
Tell her for sure that you won it for her and the girls from Donegall Way
We’ll hit up the bar in your daddy’s car, and then we’ll drink the night away
Then we’ll drink the night away
Then we’ll drink the night away
Then we’ll drink the night away
Then we’ll drink the night away

Hear your momma crying when you lay there dying, somewhere in Donegall
What was Jesus thinking, when he let me sink in to the arms of the Lord?
There ain’t no first eleven, when you’re up in heaven, there ain’t no glory days
If we win the cup you can fill ‘er up, and drink the night away
What was Jesus thinking, when he let me sink in to the arms of the Lord?
When he took the cup, lifted it up, drank the night away
