Now, an I'd ruther be sloppy drunk
A-than anything I know
A-you know, an I'd ruther be sloppy drunk
A-than anything I know
You know, in another half-a-pint
A-mama n' you will see me go

Now an I'd ruther be sloppy drunk
A-sip-tin from the can
You know an I'd ruther be sloppy drunk
Sip a-tin from the can
Now than to be out in the street
A-runnin' from the man

(harmonica & instrumental)

A-because it, ooh-ooh
A-bring me 'nuther half-a-pint, yeah
A-because it's, umm-mmm-mmm, now
A-bring me 'nuther half-a-pint, yeah
Yes, I've got my happy song
An I'm really now gonna raise this joint

Well now, an I'm 'onna drink a-whiles I'm up, baby
A-drink until I fall
Well now, an I'm 'onnna drink a-whiles I'm up, baby
Drink until I fall
Now if you want me to stop drinkin' whiskey
A-you ain't talkin' about nothin' at all.

(harmonica & instrumental boogie to end)
