Nancy Drinks Tequila (K. Swanson)

there's a bonnie lass from county bucks
i'm sure you've heard about
on the subject of the drinkin'
she is utterly devout
never had a dram of whiskey
never had a pint of stout
surely that is not to say
she's the type will do without

nancy drinks tequila
and she drinks it night and day
stronger men than old sylvest
i've seen her put away
her lips'll ne'er touch whiskey
beer or porter, punch or tay
nancy drinks tequila
and she drinks it night and day

when nancy's in the public house
there's sure to be a bloody row
she'll always drink a dram more than
the landlord can or will allow
if looks could kill it's sure that more
than one man would have up and died
hell it hath no fury as when
nancy's thirst has been denied

nancy drinks tequila
she's not like a normal irish lass
she'll even eat the worm that's lyin'
at the bottom of the glass
i dare you all lads big and small
if you believe you've got the brass
go head to head with nancy and
she'll drink you flat upon your arse

nancy drinks tequila
and she drinks it night and day
stronger men than old sylvest
i've seen her put away
her lips'll ne'er touch whiskey
beer or porter, punch or tay
nancy drinks tequila
and she drinks it night and day

we used to meet on saturdays
down at the pub the drum and fife
and after twenty shots or so
one night she said she'd be me wife
i can't complain about the pain
that's in me brain each sunday mornin'
i suppose this life i chose
it hasn't come without a warnin'

now we're a loving couple
tipplin' doubles down in dublin town
she's still as pretty as the day
i saw her in her wedding gown
as for me it's plain to see
tequila's cost me liver dear
i wonder if she'll love me less
if i go back to drinkin' beer

nancy drinks tequila
and she drinks it night and day
stronger men than old sylvest
i've seen her put away
her lips'll ne'er touch whiskey
beer or porter, punch or tay
nancy drinks tequila
and she drinks it night and day
