Take Me Out Drinking Tonight

When these shoes were new it was “how do you do” 
It was whisky and telling our tales 
And when my shirt was clean I was there to be seen 
I had clear eyes and my smile never failed 

Chorus 

All of my brothers I met on the way 
They were drinking by night 
They were drinking by day 
Ah restore to my eyes 
What was clear and was bright 
Honey take me out drinking tonight 
Honey take me out drinking tonight 

Bluebells and matches and stains on the table, 
Ah the sweet smell of the luscious woodbine 
“Ah Mr McEwan you will be my ruin” 
I say but I don’t really mind 

I’m still smiling through, though there’s stains on my shoes 
The right is heavy and the left it is light 
If its left up to you then I know what you’d you 
Honey take me out drinking tonight 
Honey take me out drinking tonight
