Jakey's Gin Lyrics

Jakey's Gin by Great Big Sea  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Jakey's Gin When I was a young man I was let astray
I met with a body down in Logy Bay
We went out in a weather
We wore out our shoes,
And up Kingsway road for a drink or two

[Chorus:]

Drink 'er up boys it's well after ten
Drink 'er up boys it's well after ten. [Repeat]

Some people say that the pinky is fine
Others will swear by a drop of moonshine
But as for myself I'm a bottle of each,
Mixed in with a gallon of dipper or screech

[Chorus]

Its the old shavin' lotion that's made me this way
Sweeter than Pepsi and stronger than tea
And when in the evening when we're feeling fine
We'll stop into Jakey's for icon and shine

[Chorus]

Its the old shavin' lotion that's made me this way
Sweeter than Pepsi and stronger than tea
And when in the morning when I'm feeling rough
I curse, ol' Jakey who sold me this stuff

[Chorus 2x]
