Stand up and take a bow, bartender
You've earned that bow and how, bartender
Hearin' ev'rybody's troubles
Tellin' 'em they're only bubbles
Why not drown 'em now?
Hail fellow and well met, bartender
Fourth voice in our quartet, bartender
Bottoms up, refill your glasses
Hear a toast from all the masses:
Here's to a friend that's a friend, bartendin' man.
