It was a night, me girls, from The Devil's Crown, in the finest pub in town
I was just about to be heading when I passed the final row
The next thing I remember is waking on a ship
They took me out to Shanghai on a trip

Hooray for whiskey (whiskey)
Oh for whiskey (whiskey)
A penny for each time you stood by us
Hooray for whiskey (whiskey)
Oh for whiskey (whiskey)
To you, me friend, we raise another glass

On our way back home
I been left alone with the captain's last supplies
I took just a sip, just a tiny bit
Couldn't help it for me life
The next thing I remember, they threw me in the sea
Ten empty bottles floating next to me

Hooray for whiskey (whiskey)
Oh for whiskey (whiskey)
A penny for each time you stood by us
Hooray for whiskey (whiskey)
Oh for whiskey (whiskey)
To you, me friend, we raise another glass

I built meself a raft and I paddled of
To an island somewhere close
Was it destiny? Was it meant to be?
Couldn't tell ya, lads, who knows
The island I got onto was a smuggler's hiding place
Five empty bottles later I was saved

Hooray for whiskey (whiskey)
Oh for whiskey (whiskey)
A penny for each time you stood by us
Hooray for whiskey (whiskey)
Oh for whiskey (whiskey)
To you, me friend, we raise another glass

You'll never get me on that stinkin' ship all the way to bloody China
You'll have to fuckin' hit me over the head first
Hey, come on, lads, give me another bottle of whiskey
To you, me friend, we raise another glass

Hooray for whiskey (whiskey)
Oh for whiskey (whiskey)
A penny for each time you stood by us
Hooray for whiskey (whiskey)
Oh for whiskey (whiskey)
To you, me friend, we raise another glass
To you, me friend, we raise another glass
