One Pint of Porter

Written in 1997, this is always a crowd favorite(as well as one of my favorites) and I have had people from all over the country asking if they could play it.


Some men drink whiskey, some men drink wine Some don't drink at all, some drink all the time Me I like porter at 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 it's one pint of porter that makes perfect my life I don't drink any more, I don't drink any less But here is a secret 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 The gift of the gab and 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 he end of the day
