You'll have to excuse me, I'm not in my best,
I been gone for a month, I been drunk since I left;
These so-called vacations will soon be my death,
I'm so sick from the drink, I need home for a rest.

We arrived in December and London was cold,
We stayed in the bars along Charing Cross Road;
We never saw nothin' but brass taps and oak,
Kept the shine on the bar with the sleeves of our coat.

You'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best,
I been gone for a week, I been drunk since I left;
And these so-called vacations will soon be my death,
I'm so sick from the drink, I need home for a rest.

[Take me home....]

Euston Station, the train journey north,
In the buffet car, we lurched back and forth;
Past old crooked dykes through Yorkshire's green fields,
We were flung into dance as the train jigged and reeled.

You'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best,
I been gone for a week, I been drunk since I left;
And these so-called vacations will soon be my death,
I'm so sick from the drink, I need home for a rest.

[Take me home....]

By the light of the moon she'd drift through the streets,
A rare old perfume so seductive and sweet;
She'd tease us and flirt as the pubs all closed down,
Then walk us on home and deny us a round.

You'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best,
I been gone for a month, I been drunk since I left;
And these so-called vacations will soon be my death,
I'm so sick from the drink, I need home for a rest.

[Take me home....]

The gas heater's empty, it's damp as a tomb,
The spirits we drank are like ghosts in the room;
I'm knackered again, come on, please take me soon,
And don't lift up my head till the twelve bells at noon.

You'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best,
I been gone for a month, I been drunk since I left;
And these so-called vacations will soon be my death,
I'm so sick from the drink, I need home for a rest.

[Take me home....]
