"Time Gentlemen Please"




“Time gentlemen please” He shouted out with ease

A twinkle in his eye, a really popular guy

Except at closing time. It really is a crime

To serve after hours, as he stands and he glowers

Drink up, go home. I’m ignoring your moan

“Just one more beer as we’re all still here.”

I won’t break the law I will not pour.

Another drop, its time to stop.

I rang the bell and you know full well

It means Time when you hear the chime.

As the licensee it’s up to me,

I must insist, don’t you get the gist

When the last bell rings. Pick up your things

It’s time to go. So, don’t be slow

You’ll miss your bus. If you make a fuss

I’ll pour your drink right down the sink

Don’t ask why? just comply

Please don’t stay just go away

I’ll see you soon in the saloon.

When time is called don’t be appalled

Don’t create a stink it’s just a drink

When you next appear to buy a beer

Say “You’re right, I’m going to leave on time tonight.”
