  • 7 drunken nights by the dubliners absoulte class.
  • We'll drink a drink a drink
    To Lily the Pink the Pink the Pink
    The saviour of the human race
    For she invented medicinal compound
    Most efficacious in every case.

    Mr. Frears
    had sticky-out ears
    and it made him awful shy
    and so they gave him medicinal compound
    and now he's learning how to fly.

    Brother Tony
    Was notably bony
    He would never eat his meals
    And so they gave him medicinal compound
    Now they move him round on wheels.

    We'll drink a drink a drink
    To Lily the Pink the Pink the Pink
    The saviour of the human race
    For she invented medicinal compound
    Most efficacious in every case.

    Old Ebeneezer
    Thought he was Julius Caesar
    And so they put him in a Home
    where they gave him medicinal compound
    and now he's Emperor of Rome.

    Johnny Hammer
    Had a terrible stammer
    He could hardly say a word
    And so they gave him medicinal compound
    Now he's seen (but never heard)!

    We'll drink a drink a drink
    To Lily the Pink the Pink the Pink
    The saviour of the human race
    For she invented medicinal compound
    Most efficacious in every case.

    Auntie Millie
    Ran willy-nilly
    When her legs, they did recede
    And so they rubbed on medicinal compound
    And now they call her Millipede.

    Jennifer Eccles
    had terrible freckles
    and the boys all called her names
    but she changed with medicinal compound
    and now he joins in all their games.

    We'll drink a drink a drink
    To Lily the Pink the Pink the Pink
    The saviour of the human race
    For she invented medicinal compound
    Most efficacious in every case.

    Lily the Pink, she
    Turned to drink, she
    Filled up with paraffin inside
    and despite her medicinal compound
    Sadly Picca-Lily died.

    Up to Heaven
    Her soul ascended
    All the church bells they did ring
    She took with her medicinal compound
    Hark the herald angels sing.

    Oooooooooooooooo Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee'll drink a drink a drink
    To Lily the Pink the Pink the Pink
    The saviour of the human race
    For she invented medicinal compound
    Most efficacious in every case.

    The piano has been drinking, my necktie is asleep
    And the combo went back to New York, the jukebox has to take a leak
    And the carpet needs a haircut, and the spotlight looks like a prison break
    And the telephone's out of cigarettes, and the balcony is on the make
    And the piano has been drinking, the piano has been drinking...

    And the menus are all freezing, and the light man's blind in one eye
    And he can't see out of the other
    And the piano-tuner's got a hearing aid, and he showed up with his mother
    And the piano has been drinking, the piano has been drinking
    As the bouncer is a Sumo wrestler cream-puff casper milktoast
    And the owner is a mental midget with the I.Q. of a fence post
    'Cause the piano has been drinking, the piano has been drinking...

    And you can't find your waitress with a Geiger counter
    And she hates you and your friends and you just can't get served without her
    And the box-office is drooling, and the bar stools are on fire
    And the newspapers were fooling, and the ash-trays have retired
    'Cause the piano has been drinking, the piano has been drinking
    The piano has been drinking, not me, not me, not me, not me, not me

  • Nick Cave- Brother, my cup is empty



    Brother, my cup is empty
    And I haven't got a penny
    For to buy no more whiskey
    I have to go home

    I am the captain of my pain
    Tis the bit, the bridle,
    The trashing cane
    The stirrup, the harness
    The whipping mane
    The pickled eye
    The shrinking brain
    O brother, buy me one more drink
    I'll explain the nature of my pain
    Yes, let me tell you once again
    I am the captain of my pain

    O brother, my cup is empty
    And I haven't got a penny
    For to buy no more whiskey
    I have to go home

    I cannot blame it all on her
    To blame her all would be a lie
    For many a night I lay awake
    And wished that I could watch her die
    To see her accusing finger spurt
    To see flies swarm her hateful eye
    To watch her groaning in the dirt
    To see her clicking tongue crack dry
    O brother, buy me one more drink
    One more drink and then goodbye
    And do not mock me when I say
    Let's drink one more before I die

    O brother, my cup is empty
    And I haven't got a penny
    For to buy no more whiskey
    I have to go home

    Well I've been sliding down on rainbows
    Well I've been swinging from the stars
    Now this wretch in beggars clothing
    Bangs his cup across the bars
    Look, this cup of mine is empty!
    Seems I've misplaced my desires
    Seems I'm sweeping up the ashes
    Of all my former fires
    So brother, be a brother
    And fill this tiny cup of mine
    And please, sir, make it whiskey
    For I have no head for wine

    O brother, my cup is empty
    And I haven't got a penny
    For to buy no more whiskey
    I have to go home

    I counted up my blessings
    And counted only one
    One tiny little blessing
    And now that blessings gone
    So buy me one more drink, my brother
    Then I'm taking to the road
    Yes, I'm taking to the rain
    I'm taking to the snow
    O my friend, my only brother
    Do not let the party grieve
    So throw a dollar onto the bar
    Now kiss my ass and leave

    O brother, my cup is empty
    And I haven't got a penny
    For to buy no more whiskey
    I have to go home

  • Rye Whiskey (Nick Cave)

    Jack of Diamonds, Jack of Diamonds, I know you most of all
    You've robbed my poor pockets of silver and gold
    And Whiskey, you villain, you've been my down-fall
    You've cuffed and you've kicked me but I loved you of old


    Oh Whiskey, Rye Whiskey, Whiskey I cried
    If I don't get rye Whiskey I surely will die


    Well I go yonder mountain and build me a still
    And I send you a gallon for a five dollar bill
    Well it's beefcake when I'm hungry, Whiskey when I'm dry
    And it's greenbacks when I'm hard off and hell when I die


    If the sea were made of Whiskey and I was a duck
    I'd swim to the bottom and never come up
    Oh, but the sea ain't made of Whiskey and I ain't a duck
    So I play Jack Of Diamonds and trust on my luck


    Rye Whiskey (traditional)

    I'll eat when I'm hungry,
    I'll drink when l'm dry,
    If the hard times don't kill me,
    I'll lay down and die.


    Rye whisky, rye whisky,
    Rye whisky, I cry,
    If you don't give me rye whisky,
    I surely will die.


    I'll tune up my fiddle,
    And I'll rosin my bow,
    I'll make myself welcome,
    Wherever I go.


    Beefsteak when I'm hungry,
    Red liquor when I'm dry,
    Greenbacks when I'm hard up,
    And religion when I die.


    They say I drink whisky,
    My money's my own;
    All them that don't like me,
    Can leave me alone.


    Sometimes I drink whisky,
    Sometimes I drink rum,
    Sometimes I drink brandy,
    At other times none.


    But if I get boozy,
    My whisky's my own,
    And them that don't like me,
    Can leave me alone.


    Jack o' diamonds, jack o' diamonds,
    I know you of old,
    You've robbed my poor pockets
    Of silver and gold.


    Oh, whisky, you villain,
    You've been my downfall,
    You've kicked me, you've cuffed me,
    But I love you for all.


    If the ocean was whisky,
    And I was a duck,
    I'd dive to the bottom
    To get one sweet suck.


    But the ocean ain't whisky
    And I ain't a duck,
    So we'll round up the cattle
    And then we'll get drunk.


    My foot's in my stirrup,
    My bridle's in my hand,
    l'm leaving sweet Lillie,
    The fairest in the land.
    Her parents don't like me,
    They say l'm too poor;
    They say I'm unworthy
    To enter her door.


    Sweet milk when l'm hungry,
    Rye whisky when l'm dry,
    If a tree don't fall on me,
    I'll live till I die.


    I'll buy my own whisky,
    I'll make my own stew,
    If I get drunk, madam,
    It's nothing to you.


    I'll drink my own whisky,
    I'll drink my own wine,
    Some ten thousand bottles
    I've killed in my time.


    I've no wife to quarrel
    No babies to bawl;
    The best way of living
    Is no wife at all.


    Way up on Clinch Mountain
    I wander alone,
    l'm as drunk as the devil,
    Oh, let me alone.


    You may boast of your knowledge
    An' brag of your sense,
    'Twill all be forgotten
    A hundred years hence.


    (Negro Variant)
    In my little log cabin,
    Ever since I been born,
    Dere ain't been no nothin'
    'Cept dat hard salt, parched corn.


    But I know whar's a henhouse,
    De turkey he charve;
    An, if ol' Massa don' kill me
    I cain't never starve.


    (Variant chorus)
    Rye whisky, rye whisky,
    You're no friend to me;
    You killed my poor daddy,
    Goddamn you, try me.

    the Doors - Alabama Song



    Well, show me the way
    To the next whisky bar
    Oh, don't ask why
    Oh, don't ask why
    Show me the way
    To the next whisky bar
    Oh, don't ask why
    Oh, don't ask why

    For if we don't find
    The next whisky bar
    I tell you we must die
    I tell you we must die
    I tell you, I tell you
    I tell you we must die

    Oh, moon of Alabama
    We now must say goodbye
    We've lost our good old mama
    And must have whisky, oh, you know why

    Oh, moon of Alabama
    We now must say goodbye
    We've lost our good old mama
    And must have whisky, oh, you know why

    Well, show me the way
    To the next little girl
    Oh, don't ask why
    Oh, don't ask why

    Show me the way
    To the next little girl
    Oh, don't ask why
    Oh, don't ask why

    For if we don't find
    The next little girl
    I tell you we must die
    I tell you we must die
    I tell you, I tell you
    I tell you we must die

    Oh, moon of Alabama
    We now must say goodbye
    We've lost our good old mama
    And must have whisky, oh, you know why

    A Pub With No Beer : Slim Dusty. (a.k.a A Lifer's Lament)

    Oh it's so lonesome away from your kindred 'n all
    By the campfire at night we'll hear the wild dingoes call,
    But there's nothing so lonesome, morbid or drear
    Than to stand in the bar of a pub with no beer.
