Jakey's Gin

When I was a young man I was led astray
I met with a buddy down in Logy Bay
We went out in a weather
We wore out our shoes,
And up Kingsway road for a drink of old blue

Chorus:
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

Chorus

Its 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

Chorus

Its the old shavin' lotion that's 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 this stuff

Chorus x 2

Take it two four out the door!
