Site Meter Ogre's Politics & Views: Streams of Whiskey

Kender, not wanting to be left out of the half-month-long Saint Patrick's Day Half Month Celebration, sends along this group who "play edgy, progressive, Celtic music & song tinged with effervescent Pogue flavored liquid" -- a band called "Murder the Stout."

But with a song title like "Streams of Whiskey," how can the Irish resist?

Last night as I slept
I dreamt I met with Behan
I shook him by the hand and we passed the time of day
When questioned on his views
On the crux of life's philosophies
He had but these few clear and simple words to say

I am going, I am going
Any which way the wind may be blowing
I am going, I am going
Where streams of whiskey are flowing

I have cursed, bled and sworn
Jumped bail and landed up in jail
Life has often tried to stretch me
But the rope always was slack
And now that I've a pile
I'll go down to the Chelsea
I'll walk in on my feet
But I'll leave there on my back

Oh the words that he spoke
Seemed the wisest of philosophies
There's nothing ever gained
By a wet thing called a tear
When the world is too dark
And I need the light inside of me
I'll go into a bar and drink
Fifteen pints of beer
