Oh, they're coming in through the windows,
And they're walking up the walls,
They're running all o'er the ceiling,
And they're dancing in the hall;
They're coming in through the doorway,
And me eyes they start to blink,
I only see them whenever I had,
A little too much to drink.

There's elephants and there's kangaroos,
And birds of feathers fine,
There's lions and there's tigers too,
And prickly porcupines;
There's monkeys chasing big baboons,
It really tickles me pink,
I think I should do it more often and have,
A little too much to drink.

Last night I went out on the town,
Me wife was with me too,
I said if you stay with me long enough,
The chimp can join the zoo;
It wasn't too long we had to wait,
The words we spoke came true,
For there was me wife, the pride of my life,
Doing jigs with a green cockatoo.

Oh, they're coming in through the windows,
And they're walking up the walls,
They're running all o'er the ceiling,
And they're dancing in the hall;
They're coming in through the doorway,
And me eyes they start to blink,
I only see them whenever I had,
A little too much to drink.

Me brother he got married now,
Was just the other week,
And a few of us we had a few shots,
And then we swore to keep;
The preacher was a real nice man,
The bride she looked so sweet,
And the two of us we left the church,
A-wobbling on our feet.

Oh, they're coming in through the windows,
And they're walking up the walls,
They're running all o'er the ceiling,
And they're dancing in the hall;
They're coming in through the doorway,
And me eyes they start to blink,
I only see them whenever I've had,
A little too much to drink.

I think I should do it more often and have,
A little too much to drink.
