The Character Song Lyrics Seamus Moore. A song about the pub character, every pub in Ireland has one of these idiots, in fact I'd say every pub in the world. See if you can recognise anybody from you're local in the song, I bet you can, at least one.

There's a Character I met on me travels
And of him in this song I will tell
Just listen and you'll be remended
Of some one I think you know well
He annoys everyone that is near him
Sitting there on his bar stool
He's a really nice bloke when he's sober
But a pain in the beer when he's full.

With his drink he gathers more wisdom
While good manners take a back seat,
He buts in on you're conversations
And bores you until you retreat
Then he sarts on the bar man or bar maid,
With unlimited boring junk,
He's a man of few words when he's sober,
But you can't shut him up when he's drunk.

Oh he's personal friends of the famous
Singers dancers and so,
He'll tell all the bad things about them,
Their groupies, they don't want to know,
Repeating himself as he bores you,
You're a bloody good bloke he insists
He don't know you at all when he's sober,
But you're his best friend when he's jared.

I'm just using the men for example,
But we know lots of women the same,
Quiet often their worse than the men are
Cause no one can talk like a dame
They'll hug you and call you oh darling
You're the only great hero I choose.
They're pretty stand off ish when sober,
But come on like a rash when their boozed

With each drink they gather more wisdom,
While good manners take a back seat.
They but in on you're conversations
And bore you until you retreat.
Then they start on the barman or bar maid,
As they're swaying there on their bar stool.
They're really nice folk when they're sober,
But a pain in the rear when their boozed.
