Music of the Waters.                 29
Solo.—Oh whisky makes me pawn my clothes,
Chorus.—Oh whisky, Oh Johnny ;
Oh whisky makes me pawn my clothes,
Chorus.—Oh whisky for my Johnny.
Solo.—Oh whisky gave me a broken nose, Oh whisky gave me a broken nose, I thought I heard the old man say, I thought I heard the old man say, I thought I heard the old woman say, I thought I heard the old woman say, Oh whisky up and whisky down, Oh whisky up and whisky down, I thought I heard the steward shout, I thought I heard the steward shout,
Chorus.—Here's whisky for my Johnny.
If I can't get whisky, I'll have rum,
Chorus.—Whisky, Johnny ;
Oh that's the stuff to make good fun,
Chorus.—Oh whisky for my Johnny.
For whisky men and women will run,
Chorus.—Oh whisky, Oh Johnny ;
I'll drink whisky when I can, That's the stuff to make you frisky,
Chorus.—Whisky, Johnny ;
Give me whisky and I'll give you tin, If you have no whisky give me gin, If you have no whisky give me gin. Belay there !
Belay is generally said when the song comes to an end, or " Coil up the ropes there, boys."
