We’re back from the battle and looking for fun
We’re tired and we’re sore and we’re parched from the sun
We need barmaids and liquor before we must run
Here’s to women and whiskey and war!

So it’s time to start living
It’s not time to rest
We’re giving our livers
The ultimate test
Let’s all raise our glasses
To what we love best
Here’s to women and whiskey and war!

Here’s to the maiden who’s sitting at home
While her man’s in the pub drowning in his beer foam
And if he’s not careful it’s she who will roam
Here’s to women and whiskey and war!

Here’s to the drink that is amber and sweet
With a touch of the heather, a taste hard to beat
If you don’t beware you’ll be knocked off your feet
Here’s to women and whiskey and war!

Here’s to the lads who have gone off to fight
Let’s hope and let’s pray that we’re not their last sight
May they soon rejoin us as strong and true knights
Here’s to women and whiskey and war!

After the fighting don’t give ‘em no tea
They’d rather drink ale with a lass on their knee
And be drinkin’ and wenchin’ until they can’t see
Here’s to women and whiskey and war!

And their wives when they stumble home back to their den
Will probably beat them with a big iron pan
And after the fight they’ll be kissin’ again
Here’s to women and whiskey and war!

To women who gives us a reason to fight!
To whiskey that helps us to get through the night!
To all of our comrades who’ve lived and who’ve died!
Here’s to women and whiskey and war!
Here’s to women and whiskey and war!
