Lyrics
Me and myself went drinking, Down in ‘ol Windsor town Me and myself went drinking, Down in ‘ol Windsor town I was looking for a good friend, but no-one seemed around But a man came up to me (he said) Buddy can I buy you a drink But a man came up to me (he said) Buddy can I buy you a drink I wanna be your good friend, by the way they call me Nick I said give me a corona and a slice of lime I said give me a corona and a slice of lime ‘Cos I’m determined to have a good time with this new friend of mine Me and the Devil drink at the Havana Bar Me and the Devil drink at the Havana Bar I said it’s your round Satan, two stella and a cigar So we drank lots of beer, had a good time and all So we drank lots of beer, had a good time and all And all it really cost me, was my poor old mortal soul
