The Streets
The Sherry End
[Chorus: Adam Love]
'Til the very end
We'll be just as friends
I've known you better, you've seen my worst
So let's invent words

[Verse 1: Mike Skinner]
When a good night flounders and it's over
How good it was, I tend to know
By adding up or rounding down
The evening's count of jokes
Me and my ilk share a twang
That's undeciphered by other gangs
That's a thing I love about my
Fine brothers in slang
If it's got a funny story, it's made to me
It's not for others in ear splash
It's ours, it's mad, it's many hours
Spent laughing at events pa**ed
We smirk at how smart the quirk that we spark
A word which people laugh at
It sparks around the crowd
This work of art which we have found

[Chorus: Adam Love]
'Til the very end
We'll be just as friends
I've known you better, you've seen my worst
So let's invent words

[Verse 2: Mike Skinner]
I love the craze of the latest phrase
Amazing mongrels of conjoinment
Crazy paving sayings
Are a joy to say with mates
And girls all love the lingo
They curl right up and bingo
They go that extra smile
They go the whole damn snog
I mean it though, the joke from that one night
That was wrong, that makes no sense, really
Shorten to a word then to a nod
That is friendship to me
The secret handshake of three mad mates
That makes me pleased to share traits
In understanding absurdities
That mean our brains play

[Chorus: Adam Love]
'Til the very end
We'll be just as friends
I've known you better, you've seen my worst
So let's invent words
