Oh! Whisky is the life of man,
Whisky -- Johnny'
Oh! Whisky is the life of man,
O! Whisky for my Johnny.

I drunk Whisky when I can,
Whisky, &c.
I drink it out of an old tin can.
O, &c.

Whiskey made me pawn my clothes,
Whisky gave me a broken nose.

Whisky killed my poor old dad,
Whisky drove my mother mad.

Whisky caused mr much abuse,
Whisky put me in the Calabouse

Whisky fills a man with care
Whisky makes a man abear.

Up aloft this yard must co,
Let the wind blow high or low.

One more pull, my song is done,
Pull away like a son od a gun.

There are several spurious versions of this "story", which we have been careful to keep clear of. One or two lines in one of such run thus--
Whisky hot and whisky cold
Whisky, &c.

Whisky here and whisky there,

I go to the bottom, and I suck, suck, suck, &c, &c.
