Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

Where beggars take cheques
And children steal credit cards
From the pockets of wrecks
That lie in the road
I came to in my future
And that was just yesterday
Unsure of my past
That's a knot in my gut

You buy me a drink
Then you think that you've got the right
To crawl in my head
And rifle my soul
You tell me I'm free
Then you want me to compromise
To sell out my dreams
You say you'll make it worthwhile

Oh, boys would you drink to me now
Here on the hill
Halfway up, halfway down
Oh, boys would you drink to me now
Here on the hill
Halfway up, halfway down

You tell me I'm drunk
Then you sit back and smug a while
Convinced that you're right
That you're still in command
Of your senses
I laugh at your superior attitude
Your insincere platitudes
Make me throw up

The sooner you realise
I'm perfectly happy
If I'm left to decide
The company I choose

Oh, boys would you drink to me now
Here on the hill
Halfway up, halfway down
Oh for the company
Born to the company
Live for the company
Until I die

The sooner you realise
I'm perfectly happy
If I'm left to decide
The company I choose
The company I choose
Is solidly singular
Totally trustworthy
Straight and sincere
Polished, experienced
Witty and charming
So why don't you push off
This company's my own

Oh, boys would you drink to me now
Here on the hill
Halfway up, halfway down
Oh, boys would you drink to me now
Here on the hill
Halfway up, halfway down
Oh for the company
Dream of the company
Live for the company
Until I die
Oh for the company
Dream of the company
Drink to the company
Until we die
Until we die
Until we die
