The first time that I met him, he didn't look so fine,
It must have been a good five years 'til we met up one
More time,
To say he was looking better was the difference between
Heaven and Hell,
I said, "I don't know what you're drinking, but pour me
A pint as well."

He said, "All I'm drinking's water from the stream
That's never dry,
No drought could make it run out, no matter how it
Might try,"
And I can't quite explain it in a way that I can tell,
I said, "I don't know what you're drinking, but pour me
A pint as well,"
I don't know what you're drinking, but pour me a pint
As well.

He said it had nothing to do with him; it was someone
That he met,
He offered him living water, now his glass was always
Wet,
This water was something special, not drawn from a
Regular well,
I said, "I don't know what you're drinking, but pour me
A pint as well."

He said, "All I'm drinking's water from a stream that's
Never dry,
No drought could make it run out, no matter how it
Might try,"
And I can't quite explain it in a way that I could
Tell,
I said, "I don't know what you're drinking, but pour me
A pint as well,"
Oh, I don't know what you're drinking, but pour me a
Pint as well.

He said, "I'd love to help you, but it's not mine to
Give,
You'd need to see the proprietor if want to drink and
Live,
You won't buy this in a barroom, for they've got none
To sell,"
I said, "I don't know what you're drinking, but pour me
A pint as well."

He said, "All I'm drinking's water from a stream that's
Never dry,
No drought could make it run out, no matter how it
Might try,"
And I can't quite explain it in a way that I can tell,
I said, "I don't know what you're drinking, but pour me
A pint as well,"
Oh, I don't know what you're drinking, but pour me a
Pint as well,
"All I'm drinking's water from a stream that's never
Dry,
No drought could make it run out, no matter how it
Might try,"
And I can't quite explain it in a way that I could
Tell,
I said, "I don't know what you're drinking, but pour me
A pint as well,"
Oh, I don't know what you're drinking, but pour me a
Pint as well.
