One Pint Of Porter

The Kerry Boys
Pierce Campbell/Twelfth Octave Music


Some men drink whiskey, some men drink wine Some don't drink at all, some drink all the time But me, I like porter, just one pint a day As I walk home from work, the pub's on the way Chorus I've a fine job, a warm hearth and good wife But one pint of porter makes perfect my life I don't drink any more, I don't drink any less But here is a secret that I must confess After one pint of porter, I don't count all the rest A pint with the lads is a fine time indeed And talkin' the social's something every man needs But a gift of the gab with a powerful thirst Will send ya home smilin' for better for worse Life can be cheerful if you live it just so And here are two things that all men should know If you've a good woman, never ye stray And take one pint of porter at the end of the day
