Verse 1
=======
         C7                     F7
When the hangover strikes and I open my post 
        C7
And the coffee is on
        F7                         Fm
And I'm burning my toast I let the battle commence
        C                      Dm
I see a sun in the trees and a draught at the door
        Em                       Bb7
With my head in my lap there's a day  
      Riff 1 Ab7        G7           C7    F7  C7  G7
To ex-plore     but I'm left without sense


Verse 2
=======
       C7                     F7
As the hangover strikes and I turn on the tap 
        C7
But the water's too loud
        F7                         Fm             B7
And I'm caged by the fact that the battle's not lost
          C                      Dm
Is it the hair of the dog or the baa of the lamb
     Em                     Bb7 
In a sheepish attempt to be half
       Riff 1 Ab7        G7    C7    F7  C7  G7
Of the man that I might be  or was           

Riff 2

Refrain 1
========= 
F         Bb7  B7  C          Dm Em F#m
Poor poor poor poor shaken one
Fm        Bb7            Ebmaj7             Dm   G7
Pour pour pour pour me a-nother one another one


Verse 3
=======
         C7                       F7  
When the hangover strikes and the mirror reveals 
          C7
That it's midnight or bust
      F7                        Fm        B7
And a drink does appeal now the battle is won
       C                          Dm
So the cure of the can pours it's heart out to me
           Em                      Bb7
Though I'm feeling locked up and I can't 
 Riff 1      Ab7      G7     C7     F7  C7
Find the key  well no damage was done

Riff 2

Refrain 2
=========
F         Bb7  B7  C          Dm Em F#m
Poor poor poor poor shaken one
Fm        Bb7            Ebmaj7             Dm   G7
Pour pour pour pour me a-nother one another one
