Whiskey In Pawn
Lyrics: Hall
Music: Doss

‘Twas a fine summer evening on the fourteenth of June
I drank for a bottle, sang a fine Irish tune
And I stumbled home drunk live a Liverpool skunk
And my bottles in waiting had all gone away
I said, “What the hell?!” and started to yell
Said, “Nuh uh, no sir, it’s a quarter past twelve!”
And I waited for you ‘til the day was all gone
Ya’ Liverpool bastard, your whiskey’s in pawn!

And I’ll finish the day with a fine Irish song
I waited for you ‘til the day was all gone
Ya’ Liverpool bastards, your whiskey’s in pawn!

I’ve not had a job for a year and nine months
She said, “Maybe if you just wake up before lunch!”
And I’ve cried and I’ve prayed but the bills were not paid
Now your bottles in waiting had all gone away
You’ve done it before, she said, “Do it again!”
Bring home some money, start drinking, and then
Take a bath in the lake ‘til the stench is all done
Ya’ Liverpool bastard, your whiskey’s in pawn!

I’ve come to Dublin just chasing a dream
Met a fine, Irish woman just cute as can be
But the years have now passed, seems fun never lasts
Now my bottles in waiting had all gone away
I could get mad but I should be glad
That someone like her is with someone like me
Oh, I’ll get a job and wake up at dawn
Long enough to get my booze out of pawn
