Underage Drinker

Well I drink in the morning and I drink at night.
I'm an underage drinker and I feel alright.

I'm an underage drinker, I'm an underage drinker,
I'm an underage drinker, how about you?
I'm an underage drinker, I'm an underage drinker,
I'm an underage drinker, how about you?

Well I drink in the toilet and I drink in the bath,
I'm an underage drinker it's a good laugh.

(Chorus x 2)

We would sneak out of boarding school and do the round of pubs in Ryde, scrounging drinks off anyone we knew and enough people we didn't. A pint of bitter was 35p. If there were 3 of us on the piss and we could borrow a pound, we then had to find 5p to get the round in. Happy days!
