The Final Comedown: Nothing prepares me for the end of term

Othmar's Trombone

I’ve looted and I’ve begged
On the tubes of the Bec and Broadway
I’ve been run over by cars

But nothing in Heaven or Earth
Prepared me for this

It’s a victory worth sharing
We should celebrate I think
With the bloodiest of Marys
But I’m too ****ed to drink.
