Jakey’s Gin

Jakey’s Gin published on

When I was a young man I was led astray
I met with a body down in Logy Bay
We went out in all weather
We wore out our shoes,
And up Kingsway road for a drink or two

Drink ‘er up boys its well after ten
Drink ‘er up boys its well after ten.

Some people say that the pinky is fine
Others will swear by a drop of moonshine
But as for myself I’m a bottle of each,
mixed in with a gallon of dipper or screech

It’s the old shavin’ lotion that’s made me this way
Sweeter than Pepsi and stronger than tea
And when in the evening when we’re feeling fine
We’ll stop into Jakey’s for icon and shine

It’s the old shavin’ lotion thats made me this way
Sweeter than Pepsi and stronger than tea
And when in the morning when I’m feeling rough
I curse, ol’ Jakey who sold me the stuff

Oh, whisky you’re the devil
You’re leading me astray
O’er hills and mountains
And to Amerikay
You’re nicer, sweeter, tastier, you’re spunkier than tea
Oh, whisky you’re my darling drunk or sober
