Lyrics[edit]

Sharry Bobbins:
It's eight o'clock, children. Time for bed.
Lisa:
But we're not sleepy.
Bart:
Sing us a song, Sharry Bobbins.
Lisa:
Yes, sing us a song!
Sharry Bobbins:
I've been singing you songs all day, I'm not a bloody jukebox! Oh, all right.
In front of a tavern,
Flat on his face,
A boozehound named Barney
Is pleading his case.
Barney:
Buy me a beer,
Two bucks a glass.
Come on, help me,
I'm freezing my ass!
Buy me brandy,
A snifter of wine.
Who am I kidding?
I'll drink turpentine.
Moe:
Move it, ya drunk,
Or I'll blast your rear end!
Barney:
I've found two bucks.
Moe:
Then come in, my friend.
Sharry Bobbins:
And so, let us leave,
On this heartwarming scene.
Bart:
Can I be a boozehound?
Homer:
Not till you're fifteen.
