“Happy New Year” (apologies to Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah")

Now here we go a raucous night
The TV played, the lights are bright
But you don’t really like the noise now do ya ?
The crowds are out, partying all
Waiting for a falling ball
The glitzy host repeating Happy New Year

Happy New Year, Happy New Year
Happy New Year, Happy New Year

The drinks were strong 100 proof
You saw her barfing on the roof
Her puking and the odor overthrew ya.
She staggered to a folding chair
She croaked your name and messed your hair
And from her lips she mumbled: "Happy New Year"

Happy New Year, Happy New Year
Happy New Year, Happy New Year

You say I took the early train
Avoiding seeing whats-her-name
But if I did, well really, what's it to ya?
There’s a haze and fog in every word
I can’t remember what I heard
The happy or the drunken Happy New Year

Happy New year, Happy New year
Happy New year, Happy New year

I got some rest, not quite enough
I couldn’t sleep, the night was rough
My misspent youth, I didn’t mean to ‘do’ ya
And even though It all went wrong
Heaving, puking all morning long
Nothing in my gut but Happy New year

Happy New year, Happy New year
Happy New year, Happy New year
Happy New year, Happy New year

PS...Maybe I should have written a Covid version.
