Staying in is the new going out

I strongly suggest that you try it

Get a pizza or curry sent in

It's Saturday night, sod the diet.


Sometimes I just can't be bothered

Going on a pub crawl round town

I'd much rather be on my settee

But I don't want to let people down.


I get dragged to swanky packed bars

And pay a fiver a pint

When I could be at home watching Netflix

Having a really good night.


You queue at the bar for over priced beer

And the music's a din

I'm not being anti social

Come on over and we can all stay in.


You should stay in with a film

Next time you have no plans

Get comfy, flake out on the sofa

Eat junk food and drink a few cans.


Don't listen to people who tell you

That staying in is really sad

Try stopping in with food, drink and telly

For one of the best nights you've ever had.
