Site Meter Ogre's Politics & Views: Whiskey you're the Devil

Continuing my month-long celebration of Saint Patty's Day, today I present another classic and wonderful Irish Drinking Song, "Whiskey you're the devil."

I'm not sure how much Whiskey drinkers will appreciate this song, but I'm willing to bet they won't deny it...it's another great sing-along tune, too.

Amazon has a short clip so you can hear the tune if you don't know it:

Whiskey you're the divil, you're leading me astray
Over hills and mountains and to Amerikay
You're sweeter, stronger, dacenter
You're spunkier than tay
Oh whiskey you're me darlin' drunk or sober.

Oh, now brave boys are off for
marching off to Portugal and Spain
Drums are beating, banners flying
The divil a home we'll come tonight
Oh, love fare thee well
With me tiddery idle loodle lum a da
Me tiddery idle loodle lum a da
Me right fol torral addee o
There's whiskey in the jar.

Said the mother do not wrong me
Don't take me daughter from me
For if you do I will torment you
And after death me ghost will haunt you
Love fare thee well
With me tiddery idle loodle lum a da
Me tiddery idle loodle lum a da
Me right fol torral addee o
There's whiskey in the jar.

Now the French are fightin' bouldly
Men are dying hot and couldly
Give every man his flask of powder
His firelock on his shoulder,
Love fare thee well
With me tiddelly idle loodle lum a da
Me tiddery idle loodle lum a da
Me right fol torral addee o
There's whiskey in the jar.
