John Twomey's Drinking Song

"To everyone a full measure"
"Not drinking? Than what is your pleasure?"
"You're short did you say?
"Can't afford it today?"
"What harm? You can pay at your leisure!"

So fill up your glass with brandy
Too much sure you'd sure you'd think it's a shandy
I've money enought to pay for the stuff
and to sing an ould ballad I'm handy

I love an ould tap o the toe
and there's sport in the brandy HO HO!
now now don't ye spill it
good girl Molly fill it
and her's to the bards that we know

And like those ould songsters bygone
let's have devilment, drinking and song
could one of yer try
a ballad by and by
to help a gay evening along
