This one's about the best offie in Cork, which sells slightly out of date booze at really low prices, hence the (affectionate!) nickname. Daycent


Not a lot in your pockets, just some lint and a couple of bits
Not enough for a night on the town but you're in the form to get off your tits
So off we go down the hill, past the Sin È and the Uptown Grill
This part of town may be dark and dank
But that's where we go when we wanna get tanked

Your arse a bit dodgy, your guts a bit sore
But you were out of your mind for under a score

At the Gone Offie – if you're not picky stick your head in the trough
At the Gone Offie – go in with a twenty you can drink your head off

It's the morning after the night before, all you're after is the fucking cure
Just the one would nearly do the job but you can get six for a couple more bob
Before you know, back to square one, the craic is 90 having loads of fun
Drinkin on a budget is as easy as this – just hit the Gone Offie for a rake of cheap piss!

Cheap gat – how bad? It's gone off? We'll be grand!
Foreign booze, out of date; cheap as chips, it's fucking great!

I've drank in many cities, drank in many towns
Been to many offies, you know I like to shop around
Since I'm in Cork city, the most one I've frequented
Has been the Abbott's (gone off) Ale House, it's where I go to get demented
