I'm going down the pub love,

With some mates to have a brew;

Don't worry about me driving,

I'll only have a few.


See? Now I'm on our street love,

And my concentration's fine;

I told you I would be okay,

Look out the window and you'll see that I'm--


I can't believe what's happened love,

I think I'm going to gurl;

I was almost at our house love,

Then I hit a little girl.


Please don't cry love,

I'm sure it will all be fine;

The police just want me for questioning,

I should be home by nine.


Prison is a disaster love,

I think i'm going to hurl;

I really regret that night,

When I hit that little girl.


I feel like my life is a mess love,

and I hope that girl's alive;

Tell my mates to always stay safe,

And to never drink and drive.
