We were drinking like the Irish 
But we were drinking scotch
Bartender turned on a movie
Everybody turned to watch
And every single eye was gleaming

Under difficult conditions
not everybody makes it
To the loving cup
It's a mad mission
But I got the ambition
Mad, mad mission
sign me up

Sign me up
