HAPPY HOUR
(Steve Gillette and David MacKechnie)

Welcome to happy hour, blinkin' on the neon sign
She won't mind if I stop for just one,
I can still make it home on time.

As my eyes grow accustomed to the smoky-dim lights
I see the jukebox by the door
And there she is in another man's arms
Slow dancin' across the floor.

So this is happy hour
Two drinks for the price of one
People laughin' and havin' fun,
What a great place to be.

Welcome to happy hour
They gather here every day
Cheatin's one of the games they play
And this time it's on me.

You're dancin' and your eyes are closed
I wonder what world you're in.
What will you tell me when you get home,
Where will you say you've been?

All the songs and laughter and his pretty words
Take away whatever made you blue
But when the fun is all over what will you do
When there's nothin' left of us but you?

So this is happy hour.
Two drinks for the price of one.
People laughin' and havin' fun,
What a great place to be.

Welcome to happy hour.
They gather here every day.
Cheatin's one of the games they play
And this time it's on me.
