Dannicus Live – Gotta Quit Drinkin lyrics

Twas a fairy in my pint of rum
I seen her winking at me
She became more real with every drink
So I drank to set her free
I finished my bottle she came right alive
I tasted her lips so sweet
They said I was kissing Billy O'Brien
They threw my ass to the street

Twas a leprechaun in my tankard of beer
I heard him whisper to me
He promised me gold more than I could hold
If I would just drink him free
I drank the ale to the very last drop
And he handed a fortune to me
They said I was robbing poor Billy O'Brien
They threw my ass to the street

I gotta quit drinkin
I gotta quit drinkin
I swear I tell you no lie
I'm gonna quit drinkin
I'm gonna quit drinkin
I swear on my dear mother's eyes

We been best friends for many a year
And jail is hopeless to me
I'm gonna quit drinkin
I'm gonna quit drinkin
Now Billy have pity on me

I was drinkin a bottle of Irish whiskey
A unicorn I did see
She told me she'd take me to fame and fortune
If I could just drink her free
I finished the bottle and jumped on her back
And up to the the door we did flee
They told me I was mounting poor Billy's young wife
So they threw my ass to the street

I gotta quit drinkin
I gotta quit drinkin
I swear I tell you no lie
I'm gonna quit drinkin
I'm gonna quit drinkin
I swear on my dear mother's eyes

We been best friends for many a year
And jail is hopeless to me
I'm gonna quit drinkin
I'm gonna quit drinkin
Now Billy have pity on me

I sat in a pub sipping one day
When a bottle of wine called to me
A pretty young genie all scantily clad
Was promising favors for free
I purchased a bottle and gave it to Billy
He drank all the wine straightaway
He kissed his genie, they both disappeared
And they've never been seen to this day

I gotta keep drinkin
I gotta keep drinkin
There must be some magic for me
I'll drink every bottle
I can't stop to dawdle
I just gotta set them all free

I gotta keep drinkin
I gotta keep drinkin
Remember the genie so sweet
I know I could free her
The next time I see her
If they'd stop throwing my ass to the street
