Lyrics - Carry Me Home

(Young, Young & Scott)

Taken from the single Dog Eat Dog

Recorded at Vineyard Studios, Cossington, England

Released in 1977

Produced by Harry Vanda & George Young

Well the bartender's working on a late night shift
See bums and blondes and barmaids on a midnight drift
And the dance band's playing the same old slime
I'm sinking whiskey and you're sipping fine wine
I don't know what it is you're trying to prove
Well it should be you but it's me who can hardly move hehe
And I've got my reputation lying on the line
Come on baby be a good dog and help the blind

Won't you carry me home
Won't you carry me home
Won't you carry me home
Like a truck, pick me up

You ain't no lady but you sure got taste in men
That head of yours has got you by time and time again
My arms and legs are achin' and my head's about to blow
And your back's been breakin' and I'd hate to spoil the show
But I've just spent next weeks wages and I'm right out of a coin
But you want more and it's half past four and they want to close the joint
But we can't afford a taxi and it's too late for the bus
But I've been tell by friends of mine you're someone I can trust

Carry me home
Oh won't you carry me home, oh oh
Carry me home
Don't let me lie here, in all this beer

You drank all your booze and half of mine
I'm bleary-eyed and you're waiting for the sunshine (to come and kill me)
Just like the man who threw me on the floor
Don't matter while I'm down here I might as well try and find the fucking door
'Scuse me have you seen my, swizzle stick
And if you got a plastic bag 'cause I'm gonna be sick
I'm dead drunk and heaven hanging upside down
And you're getting up and leaving you think I'm gonna drown

Carry me home
Ooh won't you carry me home, I need help
Carry me home, ah ah ah ah ah ah aah
Carry me home
Oh won't you carry me home
Ooh carry me home, ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
