Lyrics

Ran across a street
And we beat the tram
It’s raining
And it’s twilight

Street lights blind us
As we make our way
Down a disused arcade
We go laughing

Check the back door
To our favourite haunt
Where the waiters
They don’t know us

Tonight I order a frosty
And as the drinks arrive
You turn to me
And say

A toast to our good fortune
A toast to our happiness

Picture of naked women
Line the walls
But we barely notice

A salmon or the steak
And don’t forget the bread
Oh please don’t forget the bread

The flames reflect off the whiskey bottle
And as the feeling rises
I could have seen the set of a film or a TV show
And here’s the soundtrack

A toast to our good fortune
A toast to our happiness

One, two, three

A toast to our good fortune
A toast to our happiness

I said a toast to our good fortune
A toast to our happiness
