Lyrics:

One bourbon, One Scotch, and one beer.
One Bourbon, One Scotch, and one beer.
Hey mister bartender come in here!
I want another drink and I want it now.
My baby she's gone, she's been gone tonight,
I aint's seen my baby since the night before last.
One bourbon, one scotch and one beer.

Spoken:

And then I sat there,
gettin high, mellow, knocked out, feelin good.
And by that time, I looked on the wall,
at the old clock on the wall.
By that time it was 10:30.
I looked down at the bar, at the bartender.
He said, "What do you want Johnny?"

Sung:

One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer.


Well my baby's gone, she's been gone tonight.
I ain't seen my baby since the night before last.
I wanna get drunk, get her off of my mind.
One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer.


Spoken:

And I saty there, getting high, stoned, knocked out,
And by that time, I looked on the wall,
At the old clock, and by that time,
It was a quarter to two:
Last call for alcohol.
I said, "Hey Mr. Bartender"
"What do you want"

Sung:

One bourbon, one scotch and one beer.
