who would want a drop.
If you want to treat your colleen,
You neednt be surprised.
For the whiskey that she'll give you,
Is surely well baptized.

There will be standing here from
All parts,
If your sweetheart you would treat,
They'll come with cakes and sugarsticks,
And other things to eat,
You'll hear the women bawling,
As you do pass them by
If you want to fill your belly,
Now is the time to try.

So now to end my funny song,
I hope next year you'll see,
An increase of health and likewise
Wealth and prosperity
There is one advice Id give you,
If you want to a lark,
You should never kiss your sweetheart till you meet her
In the dark.
