I’ve been a wild rover for many’s a year/I’ve spent all me money on whiskey and beer!

2. “Whiskey-Bailey’s-Guinness,” Barleyjuice

Oh, vodka’s in the bottle and rum is in the flask/I’ve got a shot of brandy, and tequila in my glass/imported wines from off the vines will sometimes serve the task/but whiskey-Bailey’s-Guinness will knock me on my ass!

3. “7 Drunken Nights,” The Dubliners

Ah, you’re drunk, you’re drunk, you silly old fool.

Drink it up, men/it’s long after ten.

6. “Beer, Beer, Beer,” The Clancy Brothers

Look what he’s done for us/he’s filled us up with cheer/Lord bless Charlie Mopps/the man who invented beer!

Upon his knee, a pretty wench/aye, and on the table, a jug of punch!
