You May As Well Go To The Bar-Room - Poem by Francis Duggan

You may as well go to the barroom and drown your sorrows in a few beers
Because crying over a lost love seems such an awful waste of your tears
He is not the only young and single man in the World there are plenty of others out there
Who could grow to love and respect you and who for you would
genuinely care.

Get over him he has made his decision his future 'twould seem will not be with you
You loved him perhaps a bit too much though to you he was not so true
Even at the time he was your lover he was having his 'bit on the side'
He did not find it hard for to dump you and how easily he cheated and lied.

Grieving over lost love seems so pointless it does seem such a waste of time
Though lost love has inspired the novelists to write novels and inspired the song makers to rhyme
You will meet a nicer and a more faithful fellow and you will bring great joy to his life
And you will learn love is not all one way and to him you'll be a good wife.

You may as well go to the barroom than staying at home grieving for someone who from you has gone
'Tis saturday night go out and enjoy the night life for life as you know without you will go on
Tonight is the night you may meet that someone special he will not come and knock on your door
Go to the pub and meet your friends and have a few drinks and enjoy yourself for a few hours or more
