Sung to the tune of Billy Joel's 'Scenes From an Italian Restaurant'
Warning, for hardcore Aufaholics only. Contents may offend.

Bottle of white, a bottle of red, perhaps a pint of Guiness instead.
We'll get a table near the street, in our old familiar place, you and I face to face.
Bottle of red, a bottle of Becks, we just wanna hurl it doon wa necks.
I'll meet you anytime you want, at Sandro's Italian Restaurant.

Things are ok with Nev these days, 'Nevenda Homes' pays the ways,
got a good wife, got a good life and the family is fine.
Den lost touch long ago, lost his job I did not know,
you could lose it all after so much time.

Do you remember those days hanging out in that manky hut ?
Tryin to keep warm with a door that refused to shut.
Turks and the Krouts and Barry's naffin baked beans.
Cold beer, hot lights, Bombers doon at the brothel nights.

Brenda and Neville were the spirit-level of marriage among the lads,
I thought it all co-dependence and she had him by the nads.
No couple looked any finer, salt of the earth and hard as a miner
still here they were wanting more out of life,
surely Brenda and Neville would always know how to survive. Wye-aye. Wye-aye. Wye-aye. Wye-aye man.

Neville and Dennis wouldn't play table tennis in that wooden naffin pigsty.
Sure was a crap-hole but beat home on the dole, that you couldn't deny.
Everyone thought they were crazy,
some thought that Oz was much too lazy and Neville could never dream of that kind of life.
But one day he'd be happy waving Brenda goodbye. Wye-aye. Wye-aye. Wye-aye. Wye-aye man.

They went off to Spain where Oz was a pain even paying for twenty-two beers.
Ally got tricky with Wayne chasing Vicki and all ending up in Tangiers.
They started to fight when the money got tight and surely would all in tears, wye-aye, wye-aye.

They lived for a while in a very nice style but it's always the same in the end.
Oz got a divorce in a matter of course and Majorie never a friend.
Hazel and Barry somehow would marry would they ever go back there again ? Wye-aye, wye-aye.

Brenda and Neville would fight like the devil but three kids kept them alive.
From the high to the low to the end of the show for the rest of their lives.
Pepe I'll have some more pasta !
Dennis' love life, what a disaster
we always knew they would all find a way to get by.
Oh that's all I heard about Brenda and Neville, Barry's divorce from his lesbian Hazel,
so here we are waving Brenda and Neville goodbye. Wye-aye. Wye-aye. Wye-aye. Wye-aye man.

Bottle of red, bottle of white. I just wanna get me pissed tonight.
We'll do that anytime you want, at Sandro's Italian Restaurant.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who hears Oz say "I just wanna get me pissed". Apparently it's "I just wanna get in me pit" but I'm not buying it :x
