Drunk II

It’s almost 4 am, and I’m quite drunk. Therefore, the most drunken song that I know:

“As I went down through Glasgow city
Just to see what I might spy
What should I see but Nancy Whiskey
A playful twinkle in her eye

Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Ohh

I bought her, I drank her, I had another
Ran out of money, so I did steal
She ran me ragged, Nancy Whiskey
For seven years, a rollin’ wheel

Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Ohh

The more I held her, the more I loved her
Nancy had her spell on me
All I knew was lovely Nancy
The things I needed I could not see

Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Ohh

As I awoke to slake my thirst
As I tried crawling from my bed
I fell down flat, I could not stagger
Nancy had me by the legs

Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Ohh

Come on landlandy, what’s the owing
Tell me what there is to pay
Fifteen shillings that’s the reckoning
Now pay me quickly and go away

Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Ohh
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Ohh”

  1. You mistake Irish sentimentality for being completely shitfaced. I’ve seen your typing on your update – you seem to be only slightly less smashed than me… :)

  2. O.k, so I am a *bit* pissed, but may I am remind you that it’s damn hard to type on that thing when I’m sober anyway – as my normal updates will no doubt show….

  3. Well, if you had a typewriter you’d know what what I’m talking about. But you don’t, do you? What a shame ;)

    I can hear the birds starting to sing outside. Weird.

    Phbbbbt :P *envy*

    I can hear the birds starting to sing outside.

    I love that about summer – sitting up on-line (and in my case, working at the same time) and watching the dawn start…

  5. Well, if I ever find another typewriter in a charity shop for cheap I will pick it up for you – but that seems doubtful…
    Scarily, all the birds have fallen silent now.

    Yeah :( I’m thinking of spending a week or two coming up with some clever graphics tricks to mimic your typewriter halfway properly, but I don’t think I have the time to either write the code , or to use a typewriter and then scan it :(.

    We don’t get birds in Tooting. A warped sort of bonus, I guess.

  7. Well, if you need bits and bobs typed out I can do that for you. Of course, I don’t think I really have time to type your all your blog entries out as well….

    No birds. Reminds me of that Manics song ‘no birds, no birds, the sky is swollen black’ or something.
