From the recording One Pint Of Porter


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

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
