It's happy hour again I think I might be happy if I wasn't out with them And they're happy, it's a lovely place to be Happy that the fire's real, the barman is a she. Where the haircuts smile and the meaning of style Is a night out with the boss Where you win or you lose, and it's them who choose And if you don't win, then you've lost

A "Happy Hour" is a promotional tool used by many drinking establishments when their prices are discounted. The Housemartins were compared by many to The Smiths. However the Smith's guitarist Johnny Marr was not impressed. He complained that "'Happy Hour' was a complete rip-off of 'I Want The One I Can't Have', and they've nicked others to. This was The Housemartins first Top 10 hit in the UK, which was a fair achievement for a band on an independent label

US release, b/w instrumental 'The Mighty 'Ship,' sealed w/PS. The third single, the great leap forward, their first UK #1, I think, and deservedly so. Beautiful, rousing delivery of really angry, ironic lyrics.
