Lyrics by Andrew Krolikowski

Once upon a Waterloo
You gave into those drugs you do.
I could have been your pioneer,
But the sun went down too soon,
And now it's dark outside and I won't survive
If nature has Her way.
You're the townsfolk to my Frankenstein,
You burn my best mistakes.

But once upon a Waterloo
I lifted a gun an artist drew
and aimed it right towards my head and said,
"Honey...I'll be with you soon,
In the afterlife or the bar tonight
whichever one comes first.
My sober soul will drive you home,
I'll be your knight in the shining hearse.
But once upon a Waterloo,
That's when I fell in love with you.
Once upon a Waterloo is when I fell in love with you."
