Here’s a great Irish drinking song for St-Patrick’s Day!

What better way to commemorate St-Patrick’s Day than with an Irish drinking song? Here’s a great track by The Trews.

Hello my name is Ishmael
forget the one about the whale
I’ll tell you of a broken hearted sailor
Maggie took my loyalty
I treated her like royalty
What starts out with such promise ends in failure

Oh my love I can’t stand to be alone
I been drinkin too much I better go home
And I think here I’m better off alone
but I been thinkin too much I better go home

All hail the queen of cruelty
She has duly been annointed
These final words her majesty had to say
He who expects nothing never will be disappointed
Nothings what she left me so I guess I’m OK

oh my love I can’t stand to be alone
I been drinkin too much I better go home
And I think here we all stand alone
but I been thinkin too much I better go home

A promise made to a tab unpaid
is home my way to a bed unmade
A fool to think that I could ever change her
a king upon my bar stool throne
a vow to never drink alone
I only drink with friends or total strangers

We’re all broken hearted here
We’re all broken hearted here
We’re all broken hearted here
We’re all broken

Oh my love I can’t stand to be alone
and I been drinkin too much I better go home
and I think here we all stand alone
but I been thinkin too much I better go home
I better go home
