Happy Hour Hero

APPEARS ON


__________ every night
At the Cactus Moon Lounge
He's got on a polyester suit and wingtip shoes
Drinking CC and 7 and slappin' on the waitress
And talking of all the fortunes he came to lose

He's handing out his business card
From back when he had a job
Flashing money that he can't afford to spend
It's a quarter after five
At the Cactus Moon Lounge
And the happy hour hero strikes again

He's got an imitation diamond that he's wearing on his finger
Lost its sparkle about a year or so ago
He's got a simulated Rolex
Hanging on his arm
Looks expensive but it runs a little slow
His finer days are done
His drinks are two for one
He knows that his ship has sailed back in
It's a quarter after five
At the Cactus Moon Lounge
And the happy hour hero strikes again

He's only got a minute
But he could talk for hours
About all the money and all the women that he's made
And his brand new sets of wheels
And his big timin' deals
And the hard times and the prices that he paid
He's got to catch a plane tonight
There's a meeting on Thursday morning
Big money's coming up just around the bend
But if you come back tomorrow
Right about five o'clock
I'll bet the happy hour hero strikes again

He's got an imitation diamond that he's wearing on his finger
Lost its sparkle about a year or so ago
He's got a simulated Rolex
Hanging on his arm
Looks expensive but it runs a little slow
His finer days are done
His drinks are two for one
He knows that his ship has sailed back in
It's a quarter after five
At the Cactus Moon Lounge
And the happy hour hero strikes again

Yes, it's a quarter after five
At the Cactus Moon Lounge
And the happy hour hero strikes again
