i stumbled in at 2am all drunk
and full of smoke
my wife said "i've had enough"
that's it, i'm sick, get out!"
so i stumbled down to kelly's pub
across the edge of town
and i told the boys me story
and we had another round

Chorus:
and we'll drink and drink and drink
and drink and drink and drink and
fight-yeah!(2x)
and if i see a pretty girl
i'll sleep with her tonight
i'll drink and drink and drink and
drink and drink and drink and fight....

and mary McGregor
well she was a pretty whore
she'd always greet you with a smile
and never lock her door
but on the day she died
all the men in town did weep
for mary McGregor finally got some sleep

::Chorus::

well i once loved a girl
a child i'm told
i gave her my heart
and she gave me a cold
so now i sit standing
out in the pouring rain
i'll stumble back to kelly's pub
and cry away me pain

::Chorus::

    General Commentjust so everyone knows, this song IS by buck-o-nine. its not by reel big fish, flogging molly, dropkick murphys, pennywise, or anyone else. this is off their cd "songs in the key of bree." and i dont care what kazaa says. i am 100% sure this is by buck-o-nine.

    General CommentYeah, this song is definately Buck-O-Nine, and this is one of my favorites. It is awesome, and there's nothing like forgetting your worries through alcohol. I think this song is pretty sad, the last verse and all, but it is totally awesome.

    General CommentI didn't think it sounded like the Dropkick Murphys, but hey, band mistakes are always a great way to find new bands :)
    Awesome song too. Makes me wish I were Irish

    General CommentThe third verse is a parody of Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright." Good stuff.
