Bubbles In My Beer    (1947)

Tonight in a bar alone I'm sitting
Apart from the laughter and the cheer
While scenes from the past rise before me
Just watching the bubbles in my beer

I'm seeing the road that I've traveled
A road paved with heartaches and tears
And I'm seeing the past that I've wasted
While watching the bubbles in my beer

A vision of someone who loved me
Brings a lone silent tear to my eye
As I think of the heart that I've broken
And of the golden chances that have passed me by

Oh, I know that my life's been a failure
I've lost everything that made life dear
And the dreams I once made now are empty
As empty as the bubbles in my beer

A vision of someone who loved me
Brings a lone silent tear to my eye
As I think of the heart that I've broken
And of the golden chances that have passed me by

Oh, I know that my life's been a failure
I've lost everything that made life dear
And the dreams I once made now are empty
As empty as the bubbles in my beer
