the man  is obviously a liar!

he says he's from scotland, yet he wants to go to  the pub with no beer.  
what's happening to the  world??????????????????

Maybe I'm a masochist???

It’s lonesome away, from your kindred and all
By the campfire at night,  where the wild dingoes call
But theres nothing so lonesome, so morbid or  drear
Than to stand in a bar, of a pub with no beer 
Now the publicans anxious, for the quota to come 
Theres a faraway look,  on the face of the bum
The maids gone all cranky , and the cooks acting  queer
What a terrible place, is a pub with no beer

Then the stockman rides up, with his dry dusty throat
He breasts up to  the bar, pulls a wad from his coat
But the smile on has face, quickly turns  to a sneer
When the barman said sadly, the pubs got no beer

Theres a dog on the v'randah, for his master he waits
But the boss is  inside, drinking wine with his mates
He hurries for cover, and cringes with  fear
Its no place for a dog, round a pub with no beer

Old billy the blacksmith, first time in his life
Has gone home cold  sober, to his darling wife
He walks in the kitchen, she says your early my  dear
But he breaks down and tells her, the pubs got no  beer
