You look around, you say what's up
You see another Irishman taking to the 'sup
You see that's the way, that's the way they came

You look around, you say what's up
You see another Paddy and he taking to the 'sup
You see that's the way, that's the way they came

Take me out on the jar today
We'll drink stout and we'll be okay
We might get our holes tonight
We'll get in a fight alright

Brendan Behan was a friend of mine
He loved the bars and he drink cheap wine
Get outta his mind with a lad and lass
He'd ride them both and then go to mass

Shane McGowan loves Dublin town
I drank with him once and woke up on the ground
Maybe someday we'll meet up and do 'brunch'
Some beers and a shandy too

Luke Kelly meant a lot to me
He sang from in here and then swigged his beer
If ordering pints was a crime
He'd be in Mountjoy for eternity

Christy Moore was an awful hoor
He'd drink poteen 'til the bogs were clean
He brought me great joy since I was a boy
The day he went dry the publican cried

Take me out on the jar today
We'll drink stout and we'll be okay
We might get our holes tonight
We'll get in a fight alright

Take me out on the jar today
