How 'bout a drinkin' tune?

lyrics

I took everything I knew and put it in a pigeon hole
Never to be dug up once again
As the Devil's eyes they burned and my began to close
I said Lord don't you let him snatch my nose

As the situation grew colder I turned to address the crowd
I said "If you're drinking whiskey raise your glass say it loud!"
Men Trinkte Mashke! Did you hear them yell?
And we'll all be drinking whiskey in hell.


As Judgement Day grew nearer I packed all my things away
And I dug up all the knowledge I had stowed away
If you could've only saw what the Devil brought that day
You just like me would run away

But here I sit today and I address the same old crowd
I said "if you're drinking whiskey raise your glass say it loud!"
Men Trinkte Mashke! Did you hear what they said?
And we'll all be drinking whiskey 'till we're dead.


And Judgement Day is here and I am next in line
Men Trinkte Mashke! Can you hear their song?
And they'll all be drinking whiskey when I'm gone
