One bourbon, One Scotch, and one beer. 
One Bourbon, One Scotch, and one beer. 
Hey mister bartender come in here! 
I want another drink and I want it now. 
My baby she's gone, she's been gone tonight, 
I aint's seen my baby since the night before last. 
One bourbon, one scotch and one beer. 
 
Recitativ: 
 
And then I sat there, 
gettin high, mellow, knocked out, feelin good. 
And by that time, I looked on the wall, 
at the old clock on the wall. 
By that time it was 10:30. 
I looked down at the bar, at the bartender. 
He said, "What do you want Johnny?" 
 
Sung: 
 
One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer. 
 
 
Well my baby's gone, she's been gone tonight. 
I ain't seen my baby since the night before last. 
I wanna get drunk, get her off of my mind. 
One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer. 
 
 
Recitativ: 
 
And I saty there, getting high, stoned, knocked out, 
And by that time, I looked on the wall, 
At the old clock, and by that time, 
It was a quarter to two: 
Last call for alcohol. 
I said, "Hey Mr. Bartender" 
"What do you want" 
 
Sung: 
 
One bourbon, one scotch and one beer.
